Re: Volkswagen Brings Vento 1.2 TSi To India

This is a good one. Think it should give good competition to City, Verna, Rapid and Linea T-Jet.

I feel this would make one of the best automatic sedan in this price range. And the timing of the launch couldn't have been better as Honda has stopped the production of Automatic variants of the City till the time new generation of the car is launched in India. Polo GT TSI is having close to 3 months waiting period in most of the metro's and bigger cities. May also be due to limited production, but the response has surely been greater than expected by VW. We'll have to wait and see the market response to the Vento TSI now.

Pricing not quite right for some cities eg. Bangalore where RTO tax will be 3% extra for 10lac+ ex-showroom. But overall, a great package.

Note that they have excluded Red colour to differentiate with Polo GT TSI.

Inquired at Elite Motors - waiting time is already 6 months as they have a couple of dozen bookings already. Booking amount : 75k.

Hi friends,
I just came back from a test drive of Vento TSI,the engine light and many other lights were on during the test drive.They answered they haven't connected the cables,is that possible?
I felt the steering too light,I have test driven a diesel Vento before but its steering was better.When I asked they told its because of not setting up the vehicle?Am I missing something,because with such a super light steering I felt scared while driving.
Regards,
Aneesh.

With 12.6 lakh On-road Bangalore, the Vento 1.2 TSI is not moving well. It is ready for immediate delivery here. Unlike Polo 1.2 TSI, which still has a waiting of 3 months.
