The Volkswagen Vento boasts of excellent German engineering and build quality. The car has gone through one facelift after its introduction in 2010. There is also a sibling to the Vento which bears a Skoda logo – the Rapid. The petrol avatar of the Volkswagen Vento has got a 1.2-litre TSi and a 1.6-litre MPI unit on offer. The engine in question, the 1.2-litre turbocharged unit, comes mated only to the brand’s reputed 7-speed DSG automatic transmission. Compared to the Polo, the Vento TSi performs slightly lesser than the hatchback, mainly due to its dimensions and extra weight.
