VW has launched a new variant ‘Comfortline’ on Vento Diesel which is priced at 8.56 lakhs (ex-showroom maharashtra). Already has a basic variant trendline and top end model highline. Now following the number of request from the customers and diesel lovers of this german manufacturer Volkswagen, they have launched this midlevel variant with some extra features from top end model for a competitive price. Only at maharashtra it is priced at 8.56 lakhs (ex-showroom) and other states it is priced around 8.74 lakhs (ex-showroom).
Already the basic variant of Vento Diesel is priced at Rs. 8.28 lakh and the high end model is priced at Rs. 10.02 lakh. So Volkswagen launched this mid variant Vento Comfortline diesel for a price of 8.74 lakhs which has features such as in-built music system mp3 player, both front and rear fog lights, height adjustable driver seat, electric mirrors and more. But actually lacks safety features like ABS, EBD, Airbags, interior package which the highline variant has. The comfortline diesel Vento offers only extra features for the price. Let’s check out the features it offers :
- Front and rear fog lights
- Height adjustable driver seat
- Radio with CD/MP3 player music system
- Body color exterior door handles & mirrors
- Body color bumpers
- Fabric upholstery and cloth door trim
- Center arm rest for rear passengers with cup holders.
- Electrically adjustable outer mirrors
- Rear AC vents
- Central locking system
- Power door locks
Volkswagen has made a good move here. They have understood the demands of the customers and diesel lovers and brought in the middle version of vento diesel making the competition tougher among the Skoda rapid, Fiesta and Verna. I should also point out some of my opinion here. There is no technical specs change in this comfortline version. Only they have added some extra features.
As you all know, Vento is a Skoda badged Rapid Avatar car which has a tough competition among Verna and Fiesta. People who look for Vento, will obviously consider Skoda rapid for its similar price range plus the extra safety features such as ABS, Driver air bag which Skoda rapid offers is a positive for a customer. The Skoda Rapid Ambition variant comes with a similar price plus extra safety features. Also the rapid looks extra stylish and the Hyundai Verna basic diesel variant comes with these mentioned safety features.
When you consider the previous month sales of Rapid and Vento, Skoda rapid beats the vento in a small margin. So this move from VW would make vento to sell better. Already VW sells 2700 units of Vento every month. Since people prefer diesel machines more now due to rise in petrol prices, the VW team has stepped it at right time.
VW Vento comfortline is only for diesel variants. The other variants from VW Vento includes petrol trendline, petrol highline and Petrol highline Automatic. Here there is a competition between Fiesta AT and Vento AT petrol variants. The diesel has three variants – trendline, comfortline and highline.
When talking about the specs of Vento Comfortline diesel, there is no changes. It comes with a 1.6 litre, 105PS motor, 1598cc, 4-cylinder diesel engine which produces 105 BHP of power at 4400 RPM and 250 Nm of torque at 1500 RPM and 5 speed manual gear box. Will give 22kmpl fuel efficiency.
