VW Vento

Before we dig deep into this Preferred Edition vehicle, we shall give you a little background into the Vento. The Vento’s production started in the Pune plant in 2010. Three trims were introduced – Trendline, Comfortline and Highline. It reminded buyers of a more elongated version of the Polo, but its features do attract all. The latest edition underwent a facelift and now has much better options, features and additions as compared to the outgoing models.
