Comparing the mileage figures of the Vento 1.0 TSI to its rivals, the German sedan sits right in the middle of its competition, only behind the naturally aspirated Verna by a small margin. On the other hand, the Maruti Suzuki Ciaz leads in terms of mileage mostly because it features the brand's ‘SHVS' mild hybrid technology. It returns an ARAI rated mileage of 20.65kmp/l — around 2km/l more than the Vento.

Comparing the automatic variants, the Toyota Yaris again takes the last place. However, this may change when the Vento automatic variant mileage figures are revealed.

Thoughts About The Volkswagen Vento 1.0-Litre TSI Mileage Comparison

The Volkswagen Vento is now sold only with a single engine option as the diesel powertrain was discontinued on the BS6 models. Most of its rivals offer both petrol and diesel powertrains with a host of different transmission configurations. The competition is about to get hotter as Honda is about to release an all-new fifth-gen City in the Indian market. Whether this will affect sales of the German sedan remains to be seen.
