These variants of Volkswagen Vento gets discontinued in India, Know details about the update

German automaker Volkswagen has started to discontinue one of its popular mid-range sedans- Volkswagen Vento in India. The existing range of the sedan is now limited to three variants only. It is expected that the Volkswagen Virtus will replace the outgoing Vento in the country.

Currently, Volkswagen has discontinued the Comfortline variants of the Vento along with Highline Plus MT. Interested buyers can purchase the Vento in Highline MT, Highline AT and Highline Plus AT trims. The ex-showroom price of the mid-size sedan starts from Rs 9.99 lakhs (ex-showroom New Delhi). The Volkswagen Vento Matte Edition which was launched last year has a starting price of Rs 14.79 lakh (ex-showroom New Delhi).

The Virtus will be based on the MQB AO-IN platform like the Skoda Slavia. It is expected that the upcoming sedan will feature an electric sunroof, large touchscreen, digital instrument console, multiple airbags, LED projector headlamps, LED tail-light and others features.

The new Volkswagen sedan is expected to be powered by a 1.0-litre 3-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine. The 1.0-litre engine generates maximum power of 115 hp and the top torque figures recorded by the sedan will be 175 Nm. The 1.0-litre petrol engine will be coupled with a 6-speed manual gearbox. Users will also be offered with a 6 speed torque converter automatic gearbox. It is expected that the sedan will also get a new 1.5-litre turbocharged petrol engine, which is offered in the Taigun. The engine generates a peak power of 150 bhp while the maximum power is 250 Nm.

As the Volkswagen Vento is going to be completely discontinued soon; the Volkswagen Virtus might replace it in future. In terms of dimensions, the VW Virtus measures 4482mm in length, 1751mm in width and 1472mm in height. This means the new sedan will be 92mm longer, 5mm taller and 52mm wider when compared to Vento. The wheelbase of the sedan is 2651mm while that of the Vento is 2553mm. This means that the Virtus is longer than the Vento by 98mm.

Considering that India does not have ample mid-sized sedan, the Volkswagen Virtus will offer a good option for budgets buyers. We are hopeful that this sedan stands up to the mark of other sedans available in the Indian market. Upon its launch, this Volkswagen Virtus will be competing with the likes of Maruti Suzuki Ciaz, Honda City and Hyundai Verna.
