Default Re: Volkswagen Vento Diesel Highline gets some more features

That's exactly what I think the reason is. They want to create this awareness since the rapid is up for launch next week to differentiate itself from the skoda cousin. Intentional, I would say.

By the way - they conveniently missed mentioning about the deleted feature in this updated version - Interior survellience system.

Today, they made it official by making an official announcement of the same, in case prospective customers (who didn't know about these late-addition features) were wondering if the Vento diesels were VFM in comparison to the Skoda Rapid diesel due to be launched next week.

One thing though, at 11.20 lakhs on road in Kol, isn't the price a bit too high?
11.2 in Kolkata.
Can you please share the breakup.

I got mine for 10L even after opting insurance from VW.

Though it does come with breeze package - which includes a touchscreen ICE and park distance control - but certainly no steering mounted controls.
When I asked the VW SA, he said it is available in both petrol and diesel highline, confusing indeed!
Plus, the updated Vento brochure mentions Steering Controls as standard in Highline, doesn't specify petrol/diesel.

I am not entirely sure about the price break up.

But what I know is ex-showroom price was apparently 10.3 before the changes. With the changes, the price quotes were 10.6. Where did you buy the car? and when?

It is from OSL Exclusive on Bypass, in the begining of 2nd quarter.
Ex-showroom was 9.3L. 40K for insurance and 15K corporate discount. Rest are taxes.

Are you sure the ex-showroom price is 10.6L?

Yeap, same place. But to be honest I was equally shocked when he told me the prices[Although I haven't seen the invoice, I doubt he'll lie to me. He is kind of a chaddi badi.] Even now carwale lists avg. ex-showroom prices as 9.7 lac. Don't know whats going on here!

It is very much possible that they have now introduced these in petrol variants too (earlier it was only diesel), kind of explains the timing of this message. Kind of correlate since they had huge inventory of petrol vento's lying unsold!

Ex-showroom is only 9.77 lakhs. It definitely cannot be more than 10 lakhs at any case.

essential for them to create differentiation considering that the little cousin the Rapid is days away from landing in the market and changing the game!

Intention of implementing these features is purely marketing of the product. company needs to do some mid-life refreshment of the product.
Rapid is definitely not the reason as these things are planned much in advance to alter anything.

you are right Bala, these things are also implemented for Petrol. Only thing is that not many people are buying Petrol cars now a days and so no new cars with additional features are coming in the market because the pipeline stock needs to be cleared first (first built, first out concept).

You are right Amit, the steering controls are from the Jetta, but some functions are not functional like the Bluetooth facility.

I asked Abra Motors, Chennai if I can get the steering audio controls installed on my Dec 2010 Vento and prompt came the answer "No Sir ! Not possible now". Despite my insistence for the OE part, they weren't ready to do that. Can we get this done after market ?
