Re: 2014 Vento 'Refresh' Launching soon

I am skeptical about Diesel + DSG combination. If it is indeed true I will be their new customer. But no definitive confirmation from VW or Skoda about the same. Considering all the discounts they are offering now to sell cars, they can easily launch high trim diesel DSG for around 10.5 laks ex-showroom. It they can do that it will be game changer but they need to act quickly.

Re: 2014 Vento 'Refresh' Launching Soon

Update:
Vento 'facelift' to be launched in Sept. Will have the GT twins offered too. Speculated to get the TDI with DSG as a varaint.
Exteriors and interiors similar to that seen on the recently launched Polo.

2015 - A more powerful and premiun varaint - Vento GP?
The Vento GP will have a different class and will be a premium in its class and will be positioned above Honda City and Hyundai Verna.
The Vento is likely to get a more comprehensive revamp, the sedan’s first in over three years of the car being on sale in India.

VW expects to bring New cars in 2016 like the CUV's etc, till then they will bring varaints of the existing models to be in the limelight.

Re: 2014 Vento 'Refresh' Launching Soon

People who bought VW Polo 1.2 TDI recently are feeling bad after the inception of Polo 1.5 TDI for a similar price. So now VW has ditched the 1.2 and 1.6. As 1.5 is new and adheres to Indian tax system, we can be sure that it will continue for long in the pipeline. So as per the information I received, the vento and polo GT are going to come with 1.5 TDI with VGT turbo with similar power outputs as 1.6 TDI. But recent post from AutoColumn says that all new vento is going to be launched in July 2015. So, I would suggest to wait and buy 2015 version if you are not in a hurry.

Re: 2014 Vento 'Refresh' Launching Soon

Here are the first image of the Vento refresh testing in India. Expect a festive season launch. Engine would be the 1.5TDI for diesel and could have the AT mated to the DSG too. Expect all changes of the New Polo both internal and external to be in this.

Re: 2014 Vento 'Refresh' Launching Soon

Vento refresh will be launched in September 2014.
Volkswagen will launch the new Vento as early as possible this month, within the next couple of weeks to be more specific. Production of the old Vento has already stopped and we have on many occasions spotted the facelifted car testing. Expect a few cosmetic additions similar to what we saw in the new Polo which will make the Vento look fresher. These will be limited to new bumpers, refreshed headlamps and a new alloy wheel design. There will be more features inside the cabin. Expect the prices to be slightly higher than the outgoing car. A formal announcement from Volkswagen about the launch date is expected shortly.

Re: 2014 Vento 'Refresh' Launching Soon

I visited VW to have a second look at Vento. Sales guy is absolutely confident that 1.5L Diesel Automatic will not be launced in next 6 months. I am confused now and not sure if I should believe him?

Also Polo TSI waiting time is approximately 4 months. Do not understand why they do not want to sell Polo TSI. Especially when overall VW sales are touching all time low. Also skeptical about how they will manage the delivery time with new facelifts.

VW dealers are the last to know about launches, this is based on past experience when Polo releases.

VW dealers in Hyderabad are not interested in selling any vehicles. I interacted with them in the last 1 year they have no clue about products that are already launched how can we expect them to know about future launches. Once I called them to say I want to book Polo TSI, sales person told me TSI takes 6 months but GT TDI comes with automatic transmission please book sir. When I told him GT TDI is manual he again said no sir automatic transmission. I asked him to send an email with the information. He never responded :-)

Re: 2014 Vento 'Refresh' Launching Soon

I absolutely agree with AutoKrish, salesman have the poorest of poor knowledge about cars which they have them in their showrooms and they see them everyday, what will they have know about the upcoming vehicles [lol]. A salesman from VW dealer in Hyderabad told my friend very confidently that there is not going to be any 1.6 TDI (polo) or GT TDI at all. Where as VW announced the date to launch the vehicle very next month. When my friend came up with this, I showed him on internet. He was like damn. Not to trust any salesman again.

I have encountered many such situations like these and in the end I never trust a salesman.

Re: 2014 Vento 'Refresh' Launching Soon

Thanks vm2011, AutoKrish, Volksjager. I will wait for the refresh for some more time. I am desperately waiting for good Diesel Auto transmission carat around 10L. This could be it. I still have to hope they would not mess up with delivery times.

Re: 2014 Vento 'Refresh' Launching Soon

I am also waiting for good Automatic Transmission car. I am ok with TSI or Diesel. But dealer folks are not taking booking or not able to predict when they can deliver car. My wish list
Diesel + DSG
Safety features ESP + Hillhold + more airbags
Paddle Shifts + Cruise Control
Price 10.5 Ex-showroom :-)
reduce unnecessary chrome.
