Volkswagen Vento for Sale in Nigeria
German Engineering, Best in Class
The Volkswagen Vento is a new entry to the lineup, and the only one manufactured by Volkswagen India. It is majorly based on the Volkswagen Polo and therefore also known as Polo sedan in some regional markets. Vento is an Italian word which means wind; it somehow refers to the aerodynamic engineering of this car. The Volkswagen Vento is the smallest sedan in its lineup, and is positioned below Volkswagen Jetta.
As the Stallion Motors Limited is offering a very limited range of Volkswagen vehicles, you cannot find a new Volkswagen Vento for sale in Nigeria. The Vento nameplate was also used for Volkswagen Jetta for a very long time. Even in Nigeria, it is mostly referred to as Jetta.

Volkswagen Vento Performance Dynamics
The all-new Volkswagen Vento comes in two engine options. First one is a 1.6 liter petrol engine mated to either five-speed manual or six-speed automatic gearbox, while the other one is a 1.6 liter TDI diesel paired with a five-speed manual transmission system. As the diesel variant is specifically aimed for the US market, we will be talking about the petrol version. Its maximum engine output is 104 horsepower and 153 Nm torque, which enables it to deliver 0-100km/h acceleration in 12.1 seconds, while the top speed is 187 km/h. Moreover, its lightweight engine results in high fuel economy, which is measured as 7 liters/100km. This gives it an advantage over the Toyota Yaris sedan that completes 100km distance in 7.3 liters with lower engine performance.
Volkswagen Vento Design Standards
The Volkswagen Vento inherits the design philosophy of Volkswagen. The exterior is simple, yet efficient and purposeful. The headlights derived from the Volkswagen Polo are bordered on both sides of the chrome accented front grille. A few inches below, a pair of superior fog lamps is covering the large air inlet. To further garnish the exterior, company has added stylish and sporty alloy wheels and chrome finish boot lid.
Just like the exterior, the interior is also made to the simplest design policy. It is not much advanced in terms of technology and modern equipment. Some of the prominent interior features include RCD 220/230 music system, which can be regulated through the audio controls mounted in steering wheel; the intelligent Climatronic air-conditioning with rear AC vents; and dust and pollen filters to sustain a comfortable environment.
Convenience and Safety Features
The Volkswagen Vento makes your journey a lot more convenient by taking care every little detail. For instance, you can find the perfect driving position for yourself by adjusting the steering wheel, driver seat lever, armrest, head lever and the mirrors. The rear seat bench also embeds in a central armrest that can be retracted; if not more than two persons are being seated.
Moreover, the Volkswagen Vento gives its best to make your every trip safe. It is built with a number of safety features that include antilock braking system (ABS), seatbelts with pretensioners, driver and front passenger airbags, anti-pinch protection in all four windows and parking sensors that assist you in parking.
Volkswagen Vento Price in Nigeria
As the all-new Volkswagen Vento has not yet arrived to the Nigerian markets, so we cannot certainly state the price of this next-generation subcompact sedan. However, you can find a used Volkswagen Vento for sale between a price range of ₦250,000 and ₦800,000 depending on the model year and the condition.
Although the Volkswagen Vento is reasonably newer to the market as compared to its major competitors like Toyota Yaris, Hyundai Accent and Honda City, it is doing well in sales across the world. However, it will take some time to establish itself in the Nigerian markets and give other brands a healthy competition.
