Good news for Vento lovers who wanted a variant priced somewhere between the Trendline and Highline variants. Volkswagen India has launched a new variant of the Vento, called Vento Comfortline. As there is a big gap of almost INR 1.40 Lakhs between the Trendline and the Highline variant, launching the Comfortline variant is indeed a futuristic step taken by Volkswagen India. The Comfortline variant is priced INR 8.56 Lakhs (Ex-Showroom) in Maharashtra and INR 8.74 Lakhs (Ex-Showroom) for rest of the country.
This Comfortline variant comes only with diesel option, powered by the same existing 1.6-Litre Diesel Engine unit producing 105 PS @ 4400 RPM and 250 Nm @ 1500 RPM. The engine is mated with the 5-Speed Manual Gearbox which already exists in some other variants of the Vento. This setup delivers around 22 kmpl.
So what’s new in the Comfortline variant?
- Body colored door handles and ORVM.
- Electrically adjustable ORVM.
- Height adjustable driver seat.
- MP3 audio system with Radio and CD player.
- Rear centre arm rest.
- Front and rear fog lights.
Mr. Neeraj Garg, Member of Board & Director Volkswagen Passenger Cars said: “Since the introduction of the Vento, we have received requests for the mid-level trimline.”
Though including the ABS and the Airbags would have helped the Vento to compete with its tough rival, the Honda City in which these features come as standard.
