VW Vento Trendline & Comfortline variants discontinued

The VW Vento is being replaced by the Virtus based on the MQB A0-IN platform.

Volkswagen has discontinued the Trendline and Comfortline variants of the Vento. The mid-size sedan is now available in Highline and Highline Plus trims only, with prices starting at Rs. 9.99 lakh (ex-showroom).

Volkswagen had introduced the Vento Matte Edition last year. It comes with a matte finish exterior paint at prices starting at Rs. 13.37 lakh (ex-showroom).

The carmaker has trimmed the Vento line-up as it prepares to launch its replacement in the Indian market. As we all know, the Vento is being replaced by the Virtus. Based on the MQB-A0-IN platform, the new mid-size sedan will share its underpinnings with the Skoda Slavia.

The Virtus is expected to go on sale in May 2022. It is expected to be offered with 1.0-litre and 1.5-litre turbo petrol engines. In the Slavia, these engines are rated at 113 BHP / 175 Nm and 148 BHP / 250 Nm, respectively. A 6-speed manual transmission is offered as standard with both engines. The former gets a 6-speed automatic option, while a 7-speed DSG is available with the 1.5L engine.
