The model comes in three variants: Highline, Comfortline and Trendline. The Highline VW Vento is powered by an award-winning 1.2-liter TSI turbocharged direct injection engine that is paired with a 7-speed DSG automatic transmission. With the highest torque in its class, the Vento offers exhilarating driving performance that participants will truly enjoy.

The Vento is also rated 5-star by ASEAN NCAP for its range of safety features including Electronic Stability Control (ESC), four airbags (front and side), anti-lock braking system (ABS), Intelligent Crash Response System (ICRS) and ISOFIX.
