Unofficial Picture: 2011 Volkswagen Vento

Here are some more pictures of the Volkswagen Polo saloon, the Vento, that has recently landed in our inbox. The saloon is slated to hit the Indian roads by September this year. The Vento is essentially the saloon version of the recently launched Polo and it shares a common platform with the hatchback.

The vehicle looks ready for production and the images clearly show the shape of the boot and the taillight; which is strikingly similar to the image that was featured in Autocar India’s May 2010 issue. Specifically designed for India, the Vento will be tailored to the requirements of the Indian consumer and carry the Volkswagen DNA of German Engineering. The sedan will be manufactured in Volkswagen’s state of the art plant at Chakan, Pune.

Both the saloon (Vento) and the hatch (Polo) are similar upto the B-pillar, except for the blacked out headlamps which will differentiate it from its hatchback sibling. The Vento’s rear section or third box is well integrated with the body. The wheelbase has also been extended by an estimated 50mm for better legroom. Headroom too will be better as the roof doesn’t taper down as sharply as in the hatch.

With its authentic and elegant design coupled with innovative features and driving dynamics, VW is hoping the Vento to set new benchmarks in its class and to act as a key brand pillar for the company to stimulate its growth in the country.

This all-new saloon with a brand new set of engines promises to blend performance, luxury and economy like no other mid-size car. Expect the Vento to be priced in the range of Rs 7-9lakh, which will be on par with its competition.
