      Volkswagen launches Vento TSI in India at Rs 9.99 lakhs.

      Volkswagen has launched the performance enhanced, turbocharged Vento TSI in India. It has been launched at a price of Rs 9.99 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi).
      The Vento TSI is powered by the 1.2-litre, four cylinder, turbocharged petrol engine that is good for 105PS of power and 175Nm of peak torque. It comes synced with a 7-speed DSG automatic. Claimed fuel efficiency figure of the Vento TSI is 16.93kmpl. It also comes equipped with a host of safety features like ABS, an electronic stabilization program (ESP), hill-hold function, dual frontal airbags, 3-point seatbelts at the front and an electronic engine immobilizer with floating code.

      “With the new Vento TSI, Volkswagen takes the lead with producing cars that are high-tech, powerful and fuel-efficient. With a turbocharged petrol engine and 7-speed DSG automatic gearbox, the Vento TSI provides excellent performanceand fuel economy. With its class-leading build quality and high levels of fit and finish, the Vento TSI will be the car of choice for discerning buyers,” said Arvind Saxena, MD, Volkswagen Passenger Cars, Volkswagen Group Sales India Pvt. Ltd.

      Recently Volkswagen hinted at the probability of retiring naturally aspirated engines and going all turbocharged. After dropping the 1.2 TSI in the engine hub of the Polo and getting impressive numbers, the Vento 1.6 is taking the 1.2 TSI. The turbocharged unit is smaller, powerful and more efficient in terms of fuel and emissions.

      Sales of the new Volkswagen Vento TSI will commence from October 10, 2013. The car will initially be available in selected cities across India. Six colour options are offered for the Vento TSI.

      This is an interesting move from VW, and also opens the path for a TDI-DSG Vento. Hopefully.

      The TSI comes in only one variant, which is effectively the HL.
      So the effective hierarchy is:

      TL < CL < HL < HL-Auto < TSI

      Interesting to see one of the very few turbocharged petrol engines available in india & personally feel it should have been priced lesser

      The mileage that is got from a GT TSI Polo after a slight spirited drive is 6.9Km/l, so how much of fuel efficiency are we expecting here??

      Shouldn't be that different really. The difference in weight is ~40kg b/w the cars
