The Volkswagen Vento price for the Highline Plus variant is Rs 12.62 lakh for the petrol and Rs 13.87 lakh for the diesel model. Both the prices are ex-showroom.

We expect the Volkswagen Vento Sport Edition price to be in the range of Rs 13 lakh for the petrol and Rs 14 lakh for the diesel model.

DriveSpark's Thoughts About The New Volkswagen Vento Sport Edition

Volkswagen has revealed the all-new Vento (Virtus) based on the company's new MQB platform; however, India continues to get the PQ25 based Vento.

Till the prices of the MQB platform comes down, we are unlikely to see VW launch the next-generation Vento in India.

With Honda City and the Hyundai Verna updated, Volkswagen is looking to add some amount of freshness to the Vento with special editions.
