Volkswagen Vento Review : Its Powerful and Supercool!


Who doesn’t know about a Vento! Its one of the best Cars ever manufactured by Volkswagen. Today I am reviewing it on the basis of my experience while driving it on Expressway! So here we go:

About Vento

The Volkswagen Vento is a Sedan Class Car manufactured by Volkswagen India. It was launched in 2010 and was specially designed for the Indian market. Available with a powerful engine of 1598cc, it comes in all the three variants i.e. Petrol, Diesel and CNG.  On the first sight, I found Vento a good-looking car. It has direct rivalry with its class’ most famous car i.e. Honda City. But the thing I liked about it is that  it doesn’t look like a hatch with a boot added on which makes it superior to some extent. Its line design are too crisp and that is what makes it a proper Super three-box car. And, its boot-space is very large and deep.
