I still hate that cut-throat front!

Something that puzzles me: why does the third steering-wheel spoke (down in the pic) have the metallic inset?

Thanks for the photos

That metallic inset was supposed to be in the Polo as well but VW didn't put it to save costs probably. Otherwise, all Europe and Australia-spec models come with the metallic insert. Be it Polo or even the Jetta. Even the metallic strip on the lower lip at the front is present in foreign spec Polos.
It looks very good IMO.

Will the Vento have USB/Aux-in?

Interiors look Top Notch & Very well finished, Thumbs Up to Volkswagen. But the Vento from the front too similar to the Polo. IMO, they could have done a better job when it comes to the Front.

Where are the Steering Mounted Controls ? in a car that costs 8-9 Lakhs, it becomes a must have feature, even the Lower Segment Ritz ZXi have them.

It is just cosmetic, then?
