Volkswagen Malaysia has just taken the wraps off the Vento sedan in Malaysia, a new model replacement for the Polo sedan.
Locally assembled at its Pekan plant, buyers will get to choose from three different variants namely, the Highline, Comfortline and Trendline to suit the needs and budgets of every consumer.
In terms of its overall looks, the Vento can be easily distinguished by a new chrome grill and “character lines” which contours and defines. Also available are the 16-inch Syenit alloy wheels, new tail lamp design, new smoked headlamps, new fog lamp design and manual height adjustable headlamps to ensure optimal visibility in any situation.
Inside the cabin, the Vento comes with a new silver finish on the dashboard for a sleek look and feel. Also available is the tilt and telescopic adjustable multi-function leather steering wheel and a cooled glove box. Elsewhere inside the cabin, buyers will find folding rear seats, ‘Cable’ fabric seat upholstery and a large multi-function display.
Other features available in the Vento includes a cruise control, remote control operated power windows, and automatic one touch up/down power windows for all four doors. The Vento also comes with “Climatronic” automatic air conditioning system, a fully automatic climate control system for the comfort of all passengers.
The Vento Highline is powered by the award-winning 1.2-litre turbocharged direct injection TSI engine that outputs 105PS and 175Nm of torque, mated to a 7-speed automatic transmission DSG. With superior drivability and performance, fuel consumption is remarkable at 5.5-litres per 100km.
The Comfortline and Trendline variant on the other hand, is powered by a 1.6-litre 4-cylinder petrol engine that churns out 105PS and 153Nm of torque, mated to a 6-speed automatic gearbox with Tiptronic function. Both models have a fuel consumption of 6.5-litres per 100km.
Whilst impressive on performance, safety is not compromised. The new Vento Highline is awarded with 5 star rating by ASEAN NCAP and is equipped with Electronic Stability Control (ESC), 4 airbags (front and side), anti-lock braking system (ABS), Intelligent Crash Response System (ICRS) and ISOFIX anchorage point for child seats.
As per Volkswagen’s commitment to building stronger and safer cars, the new Vento is also constructed using laser welding which is standard for all Volkswagen vehicles. This is a testament to German automotive engineering.
Available in Candy White, Flash Red, Reflex Silver, Carbon Steel Grey and Deep Black, the Volkswagen Vento are priced at RM79,888 for the Trendline, RM86,888 for the Comfortline and RM93,888 for the Highline. For a limited time only, the Vento Tredline comes with an early bird price of only RM77,888!
