What appears to be a facelift in India sometime doesn’t fit to be a proper ‘facelift’ if happen to go by the proper meaning. As it is working fine with the carmakers here in the country, there seems no one raising the voice against it. Well, we too don’t have a problem with this Vento facelift for the coming year if this is a given case.
Last year, company rolled out Vento with a facelift that was comprised of new headlamps and set of fresh wheels. Now, a more lucrative version is spied clear of the camouflages. Revealing the story about is new avatar, a new nose and some mechanical upgrades would accompany the 2015 badge is speculated.
The test mule was snapped on the outskirts of Pune. And it happens to be a freshly-baked product rolled out of the factory rather than being the test-mule. Clearly showing a makeshift bumper hiding the fog lamps, and commenting the spot under headlamps have been redesigned with its wider smile. The grille appears to be derived from Passat, but some minute quirking had made it compatible for this sedan. On the top of all, bonnet too went under the knife this time. The cut for VW logo is missing and now it gets more engaging new creases. Along with the front bumper, company had also tweaked rear bumper that does the very well for a new finish. The strip running across the trunk (above number plate holder) is likely to be chromed – an engaging idea to connect with the Indians. Hence, with all the new face and creases it gains all over makes it to appear a very modern car that is low slung in aesthetics. From a fraction of investment VW has aimed to get the maximum.
If sources are to be believed, they said the gear ratios will be revamped if the technical amendments are carried out. Especially, it will be on the dual-clutch DSGs which are more in demand with the people of India.
Launch of 2015 Vento is expected to take up the daunting task of rivalry in the festive season of Diwali, where its heat could be felt by Maruti Ciaz, Honda City and Hyundai Verna.
