German auto major Volkswagen's Indian arm, is all set to bring the Volkswagen Vento CNG variant to the Indian shores by the year end. In an attempt to become the biggest manufacturer in the world, Volkswagen launched the VW Vento in the Indian market based on the VW Polo hatchback back in 2010, since then the sedan has been a hit among the local customers. The increase in the petrol prices in the past few months has led to an increase in the demand of diesel and CNG cars in India. And VW doesn't want to be left behind seeing the Honda India gearing up for launching the Honda City sedan diesel variant. However, the CNG variant is currently in the testing phase and the CNG kit's performance specifications are not available yet, but VW would leave no scope for complaints before the final launch.
Volkswagen cars have already proven their caliber of adapting to any market conditions and is known for providing amazing range of features with a world class build quality. The new Volkswagen Vento features storage compartments in front doors, front and rear armrests, spacious glove box with sunglass storage unit and foldable roof handles. Volkswagen Vento offers its wide range of customers to choose from a fine Livon fabric upholstery and a leather upholstery, which convey the classic design elements of the Volkswagen cars in a contemporary way. On the exteriors, Volkswagen Vento pictures the similar body colored bumpers and exterior door handles, front grille with chrome strip and the classic VW badge. The increased ground clearance would prove worthy during the rough rides. The safety features would include ABS, airbags for the driver and the front passenger and Anti theft system with interior surveillance.
The reports say that the CNG variant of the Volkswagen Vento is expected to cost Rs 40,000 more than the petrol variant. Besides Volkswagen's aggressive strategy of putting the Volkswagen Vento price tag at an affordable range, the company may also offer a factory warranty on the CNG kit to lure the customers in order to gain a lead over its competent diesel and CNG variants from the Tata and the Japanese auto major, Honda Motor Corp. However, there are no final words from the Volkswagen camp whether its planning on to provide an upgrade option to its existing Volkswagen Vento petrol version owners. But, it is sure that the Volkswagen's Vento CNG variant would easily find its way to success and fame in the constantly emerging Indian car industry.
