The new-gen Volkswagen Vento has been launched in Russia at a starting price of RUB 7,92,900 (Rs 8.37 lakh).

Like the Russia-spec new Skoda Rapid, the new Volkswagen Vento is a liftback. The new Vento comes with a more elegant styling which gives it a more mature appearance. As regards the exterior, the new Vento for Russia and other CIS countries is equipped with full LED headlamps, 16-inch alloy wheels, and full LED taillights. The interior is more upmarket with a much more modern styling and high-tech features. Some of the most outstanding ones include an 8-inch Composition Media floating touchscreen infotainment system, a 10.25-inch Active Info Display configurable virtual instrument cluster and a USB-C port.
