It looks like German car-maker Volkswagen is planning to update its Vento sedan in India. A prototype of the Vento was spied undergoing tests, showing LED headlights.
Volkswagen had launched the facelifted avatar of the Vento in the country last year and since then the car has been rumoured to get a new variant. Although it is not clear yet whether the spotted variant is a new variant or not, what is immediately apparent is the LED headlight. The Vento test mule was snapped by Motorbeam while undergoing tests on the Mumbai-Pune Expressway.
From the images, apart from the LED headlight, the sedan also seems to be getting LED daytime running lights. There are no other changes spotted and it is most likely to be a special edition that is expected to be launched during the festive season.
It was reported earlier that Volkswagen is planning to roll out the updated versions of Polo hatchback and the Vento sedan in India soon. The company is also likely to equip its models in the country with the updated 1.5-litre diesel engine. The updated version of the four-cylinder 1.5-litre TDI diesel engine would make 108bhp of power. The current 1.5-litre TDI diesel engine that powers the models like the Polo, Vento and Skoda Rapid can churn out 103bhp of power and 230Nm of torque.
Volkswagen is also expected to launch the Polo Allstar special edition in India soon. The Polo Allstar is the special edition of the Polo hatchback introduced for the promotion of 2016 UEFA European Championship football.
