Yeah, that is possible, waiting for your ownership review to know the mileage figures of the TDi DSG.

Thanks for creating the thread rejeen. I have subscribed to the thread.
I called the local VW dealer BU Bhandari for a test drive. The sales person told me that all Vento TDi DSG are sold out and that they don't have a car for test drive. I wonder how people buy a 12 L car without a test drive.
Did you get a test drive ?

Came across an overdrive review of the Vento DSG. Although all sites have a Rapid DSG review, have not seen a Vento DSG official review from an automotive site apart from this one

have the vento dsg tdi deliveries started in numbers; been waiting for a long time with no confirmed dates, and dealer is saying that only a few comfort line variants were sent from the vw factory. This is for Bangalore.

What in the world! Why is the dead pedal missing from the Vento DSG?!

IMO, this is a must for the DSGs. During the test drive of the facelifted manual Polo, my left shoe kept brushing against the clutch every time I took my foot off the dead pedal but on the DSGs, there's plenty of space for the dead pedal.

Missing in my 2011 petrol AT Vento as well. Thanks to my relative upright position (knees almost at 90 degrees) I don't miss this much.

Let me get this straight- the facelifted manual Polo has a dead pedal but not the AT Vento?

Correct. All the facelifted Polo models including the GTs get the dead pedal but not the Vento TSI nor the Vento TDI DSG.

I got a test drive on the VW owned car which was brought to the dealers a few days before launch. Go to the dealership directly and request them. As per sources at VW all dealers will be given TD cars in mid Jan when the production of the DSG starts full fledged at the Plant here.

There is no Vento DSG Official Review. There is a Rapid DSG Official Review

http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/offici...al-review.html (2014 Skoda Rapid 1.5L DSG : Official Review)

Going by past history, team bhp does not officially review 2 cars which are very similar in most aspects (especially face lifts). Since the Rapid TDI DSG and Vento TDI DSG are mechanically identical, I don't think there will be a Vento DSG official review.

Apart from the exchange benefits, this is same as what they were calling as Vento Konekt up until now. Somebody suddenly felt that Konekt is not a nice name and Magnific sounded better?

Hi guys,

Any update on when the updated Vento will be launched? i was considering this, but don't want to be stuck with a model outdated in just few months.

Currently using a Polo GT, loving it!
Thanks.

Edit: This site has some photos of a new vento, hopefully this will be also launched here. Looks like the A3 now from the rear.
