volkswagen vento airbags Q&A Review

Which is better, New Verna or Vento?

Hello, talking straight forward, in our India there can be accidents in a fraction of second as road quality and sign boards are lacking in few states. India has most accidents in year ; considering this aspect we need some safer and well built cars with good punchy engines for showing off to our friends and amazing comfor for family trips. This demand can be full filled by only one car of two you mentioned for comparison, and that is Volkswagen Vento. DRIVING QUALITY & ENGINES:- We don’t care for looks of the car because our life is what Matters the most…so the Volkswagon Vento is a car that offers best driving quality and a variety of engines which are awesome and well refined. Also ,Vento has a flat-bottom steering wheel which has both reach and rack adjustments. Verna has a normal power steering with only reach adjustment but Vento comes with electronic speed sensitive steering. Both offer steering mounted controls. On paper Verna has powerful engines but it is the Vento with advantage of TSI & TDI /MPI engines with long lifespan and its engines are quickest through its gears. Vento shares its engines with one of its subsidiaries like Audi too.. now you can imagine its quality. Vento also offers a 7-speed DSG (dual shift gear) box. COMFORT:- So here Verna has a small compact room for passengers and so we don’t get good leg room or shoulder room and so Vento is a spacious car with good comfort especially for passengers at the rear. We feel a lot safe in Vento. Also Verna has higher window line and it gives less amount of outdoor view but Vento is a true German engineering marvel and so it is the true passenger and driver car. Tall people may get congested on Verna. BUILD QUALITY:- Germans have always been reputed for their build quality in cars and so this reputation is well maintained with our Vento which has all the safety features that a driver and passengers need. Verna does not offer much safety. Volkswagen doesn't compromise with safety for attracting customers…though Verna do have 6 airbags but then it's build quality is not quite good ; on the other hand vento needs only 2 airbags because it's build quality is engineering marvel. Vento uses a galvanized Steel body for safety and also has a side and front impact beams. Vento passes crash test with 4.5 stars out of 5 for child safety and 4.0 stars for adults. Whereas verna failed the UK crash test. Both cars have good dashboard quality with the one on Vento having scratch resistant plastic. CENTRAL LOCKING:- Verna has the central locking with remote and key. It also has a anti-theft system with alarm and engine immobiliser. Vento here is quite smart it has a central locking system with remote and key. It has a anti-theft system and an engine immobiliser. It also comes with memory lock function , this works like , as you lock your car with a remote or key and one of the door is open , then locks won’t get engaged, as you shut that door the car remembers that you wanted to lock the car and it will do it automatically. FEATURES,:- Vento might have 1 or 2 features less but verna has some cool features which we don't use very frequently also those features on verna are just for attracting customers to their side with compromising driving quality and build quality (cost-cutting). Both offer electronic interior rear view mirror with auto dimming function. Verna comes with 4 power windows, with 1 semi-automatic window that comes down with one tap but won’t go up. Rest 3 are manual. Vento comes with 4 fully automatic windows (front & rear) with one touch up & down. These 4 windows also have anti-pinch function so that no child or adult is at risk of hand injury. SAFETY:- Many carmakers ignore the strength of the material used to achieve better mileage and performance and ignore the safety aspect of the occupants. India is readying its version of crash test agency called Bharat New Vehicle Safety Assessment Program (BNVSAP); this should ensure cars built in India is focused on the build quality rather than favourite features such as ABS, EBD or airbags. While these features are indeed safety options that are important too ,but the body or the shell of the cars need to be built of high-quality material as well. The verna does not have much attention to safety department it gets 6 airbags and ABS (Anti-lock Braking System) with EBD (Electronic Brake force Distribution). The car feels uncomfortable when above 100–110 km/hr. The vento offers a ton of safety features like TCS (Traction Control System) ABS (Anti-lock Braking System) with EBD (Electronic Brake force Distribution) plus they also offer Hill Hold control with Brake assist, also it has a very hard body shell so that passengers are safe inside. Vento also comes with a automatic fuel cut-off system during accident so that no fire takes place. Vento also has anti-roll over body stability. Overall car is sturdy at high speeds. STORAGE:- Verna has a boot of 465 Litres but Vento has slightly bigger one with 496 Litres. Vento has a cooled glovebox which is bigger than Verna. TYRES:- Verna has a R/16 inch alloy wheels with all disc brakes. Vento has a R/15 inch alloy wheels with 2 discs brakes at front and 2 drum brakes at rear. LOOKS:- Verna is hands down an eye-catching car and Vento just fades away in front of verna but its a small compact car from inside not too spacious. FUEL CAPACITY :- Vento : 55 Litres of fuel Verna : 43 Litres of fuel Vento offers 16 KM/L mileage in city & 21 on highway. Verna offers 18 KM/L mileage in city & 23 on highway. DATA AS PER, ,ARAI. 1 BEST THING OF BOTH CARS:- Verna:- It has the best refined engine and you don’t even feel a vibration in the cabin. Vento:- when an accident takes place the sensors in the engine compartment comes to action and it’s engine just settles down and it does not push the cabin and make it squeeze like a sandwich when a front impact takes place. The above picture shows a ,2014 ,Volkswagen Vento was smashed between 2 trucks. The owner of the car said "I was hit by the truck from behind and then with the increased momentum hit the truck in front". This was witnessed in a recent accident in Kerala where German engineering came to the rescue of the occupants of the Vento. Above picture shows how the ,2013 ,Hyundai Verna just squeezed despite of having just a single impact from backside. Hence the built quality is slightly improved for the newer 2018 verna. CONS:- Vento:- Low fuel efficiency Looks Plain interiors High on maintenance Verna:- Build quality not adequate Engine lifespan shorter than Vento Small/compact passenger cabin Window line higher VERDICT:- Choose Verna if you want features ; looks & slightly more airbags Choose Vento if you want safety ; performance ; comfort ; feature and true driving quality. Vento may give less mileage but it won’t be too expensive for your pocket. I suggest you to go for Vento…still you can surf for more reviews here on Quora. “Choose the car that helps you create great memories with”

Which Indian cars have passed the NCAP crash test?

According to the latest NCAP, here are the crash test ratings of some of the hottest-selling cars in the Indian market: Toyota Etios Liva 4 Stars Global NCAP For starters, Toyota has been offering dual airbags as standard across the Liva range, which is something we really appreciate. In a test conducted by Global NCAP, a 2016 Liva was crashed & it scored a good ,4 stars ,for adult protection & 2 stars for child protection. Volkswagen Polo 4 Stars Global NCAP When the first lot of Indian-made care were tested by Global NCAP, the Polo scored 0 stars as the model that was tested wasn’t equipped with airbags. However, after receiving that result, VW immediately took action and equipped all the Polo variants with dual airbags. The car was then tested & it recorded a ,4 star ,rating. Volkswagen Vento 5 stars ASEAN NCAP The VW Vento has 2 different star ratings based on the variant. The ones without ESP score 4 stars and those with ESP (1.2 TSi) score 5 stars. Hyundai Creta 4 stars Latin NCAP The Hyundai Creta is a successful compact SUV in the Indian market. India is also an export base for the Creta. The Latin NCAP recently tested an Indian made Creta & the vehicle scored a 4 star rating. Mahindra XUV500 4 stars Australian NCAP The XUV500 is the first monocoque car from Mahindra. The vehicle is available in various international markets as well. Australian NCAP has tested the vehicle to find that it comes up with a 4 star rating. The reason why most Indian manufacturers don’t provide safe cars for India is due to the fact that the regulations aren’t strict enough and they don’t demand stringent crash tests. Abroad however, they cannot getaway with the same. Things will soon change with the introduction of the Indian NCAP (BNVSAP) in 2017 & it will set down strict guidelines to provide the country with safer cars. Indian manufacturers have already begun getting their cars crash tested ahead of the new regulations that are going to come in 2017. Information Source: Google

Which car is better to buy, a Volkswagen Vento or a Volkswagen Ameo?

Volkswagen has ensured all of its models are very well equipped in terms of features and the Ameo will be no different. Common features include, rain sensing wipers, automatic headlamps, touchscreen infotainment system, cooled glove box, auto aircon and more. Driver side airbag is a standard fitment across all variants of the Polo, Vento and the Ameo. The compact sedan also gets ABS as standard. Volkswagen is offering quite a bit of extra equipment, which makes the Ameo very good value for money. Source :- Google

Why did Maruti Suzuki launch SX4 and suddenly close its production?

Before writing about the question, I would like to share a little known fact from 2007 coming to the Indian automobile market. It is that Maruti Suzuki were the leaders in whichever segment they used to operate back then barring the C-segment or in simple terms the mid-size sedan segment. This was because the Baleno was unnecessarily dragged forward and was obviously feeling to look dated in the face of growing competition. Maruti Suzuki on the other hand were on a roll with the runaway success of the Swift. Hence it made sense for them to wipe out the deficit that existed in the mid-size sedan space with a new and modern offering. This gave birth to one of the most fun to drive sedans ever to be launched in our market in the form of the SX4. It was one plucked right from the international markets and looked contemporary as well as classy. In fact, I still drool over the fact that it has SUV like design cues on the front, which made it a unique product in our market. The cross version of the SX4 was also slowly gaining recognition in the tough US market, so it was safe to say that the game was playing in the hands of Maruti Suzuki during the initial months of the SX4. Coming to the competition, the Honda City was the undisputed king of it and the Ford Fiesta had just managed to replicate the success of the josh machine. In addition to that, there was the capable but underrated Chevrolet Aveo and the affordable Hyundai Verna. This meant that the SX4 had its task cut out in order to emerge at the top of the segment. Did it manage to do that? Well yes and no. Yes in the sense the car found a lot of initial demand owing to the freshness it offered in a pretty much bland segment. The SX4 was absolute value for money at that time, getting features such as ABS, dual airbags, integrated stereo, steering mounted audio controls and 16-inch alloy wheels in a package costing less than Rs.8 lakhs! Keeping all that in hold, the SX4 didn't quite dispatch the Honda City in terms of sales and was in competition with the Ford Fiesta instead for the second spot. This could be due to drawbacks such as the car offering less rear seat space and lesser mileage figures as compared to most of its competition. Despite all that, the car kept going steady for some time which further inspired confidence amongst those associated with Maruti Suzuki. Sales crossed the one lakh unit mark in a span of 22 months to be precise, which in many ways is a pretty impressive start for the SX4. But the emergence of competitors from the period between 2008-2012 left the SX4 in an intense swordfight, in which it emerged as second best. Those include the Fiat Linea, Volkswagen Vento and Skoda Rapid hinting at the fact that the segment had upgraded back then and by good measure. The launch of the new City in 2008 and the duo of the Hyundai Verna and Ford global Fiesta in 2011 meant that the SX4 became an outdated product just four years after it was introduced here. In fact, the market back then, particularly this segment had revolved to such an extent that Maruti Suzuki were offering heavy discounts at the time when most of its rivals were counting down their demand to supply ratio. A couple of years after enduring losses from it, Maruti Suzuki finally pulled the plug on the SX4 in early 2014 as I can remember. This was also to make way for their then secret project, which went on to be known as the Ciaz. The Ciaz still remains although the segment has taken a drastic dip in sales due to the emergence of a few flexible ones in comparison. As for the SX4, it is still being used in rally circuits across the country, which is a big proof of both its performance and reliability. It has also not completely vanished from our roads, with a few well maintained examples of it still seen running with as much gusto as earlier. Anyways, the SX4 was an outstanding attempt from Maruti Suzuki to get a grip on the mid-size sedan space here back then, which in return did not deliver on the expected lines.

Which is the best sedan car in India, Hyundai Verna, Volkswagen Vento, Skoda Rapid, or Suzuki Ciaz?

The names of the cars you have mentioned are pretty damn solid in almost every aspect. But each one of them have their plus and minuses. But let me tell you something at the beginning, The Vento and the Rapid are exactly same cars except their badges. Also If you are looking for a mid size premium car you should also see the Honda City. So what I am going to do is tell you how these cars perform on different parameters. Let’s get started, Looks. Although this is very subjective there is no denying the fact that the Verna looks the most vibrant and young. It is really good looking. It has a strong street presence. The Vento is a car which will appeal to the guy who probably works in a MNC, goes to the office well dressed and likes everything in right amounts. He prefers coffee over chai. The Vento was launched a long time ago in India and it still manages to look good even after all these years with minor changes. The Rapid looks more or less the same. Then there is the Ciaz. This car looks very premium but is more of an old man’s car. I think it is like the HM Contessa. The Inside Experience. Now let me get it straight, if you want some proper back seat experience you better be off with the Japanese nibba. It has the best rear seat comfort out there, Massive legroom, rear sun blinds, all this makes you feel quite luxurious. But things are not quite as good at the front yes the materials used are good but there are hard plastics and the design does not feel as good as the Verna’s. Audio quality from the stereo is decent and the touchscreen interface is also smooth. Up next is the Verna. Verna has the best interior design here. It looks really appealing and the quality of the materials is top class. Rear seat wise tho it may not be as comfortable as the Ciaz but definitely is very good on long drives. The sunroof makes things quite airy. Audio quality is phenomenal as it gets one from the Arkamy’s and also gets a 3D surround effect . Punjabi songs sound quite lit in it. The touch screen is also quite nice. Next up the German twins, Vento and Rapid. Both have identical interiors. And they are properly built. They feel solid and built to last. Close the door and it makes the proper thud. Audio quality is quite nice and the infotainment is decent. The design could have been better tho. Driveability and Performance. Straight away here. If you are going for the top model diesel , The Verna is the one. 126 bhp and 260 nms is more than enough to make you smile. 0–100 kmph comes in 10 secs flat. The petrol mill is also quite punchy and makes 123 horses and 153 nms. It does 0–100 kmph in 10.5 secs. The Rapid and the Vento are also really good in terms of performance. If you are looking for the petrol go for the 1.2 which makes 103 horses and 175 nms. The brilliancy here is of the 7 speed DSG auto gearbox. 0–100 kmph in 11 secs flat. The Ciaz here is not that good in diese engines department. It has that 89 hp and 200 nms diesel engines. The 1.5 petrol is quite nice and does 0–100 in 11 secs flat. it makes 103 horses and 138 nms. But if you really want a petrol sedan go for the Honda city hands down. In terms of Handling , the vento is really up there at the top. It feels rock solid even at speeds of upto 185 kmph. Steering is good and it’s an ebjoyable car. Looks like the MNC nibba loves driving!! Ride is also quite nice. The new Korean nibba is also very good at handling in it’s new generation. Steering has a good response and feel to it.The weight of the car keeps it quite planted at high speeds. Also the ride is the best here. Really. The Ciaz has the perfect balance of two. The ride is really very nice but the handling is not all that fun loving. And although its planted, its not as confidence inspiring as the contenders. Effeciencies; Ciaz- petrol-21.5 and diesel 28.00 kmpl Verna - petrol 16 and 1.4- 24 kmpl and 1.6- 23 kmpl Vento- petrol- 15.8 kmpl and diesel-22.14 kmpl Safety. No doubt that the Verna and the Vento are the safest here. Vento being a VW is tank like and the Verna is right up there. The Verna offers 6 airbags in it’s top trim along with a host of other safety features. While all the other cars offer 2 airbags and ABS and EBD. The ciaz here is not that solidly built but its safe . Verdict . Pricing Suzuki Ciaz : 8.20 lacs-11.38 lacs Hyundai Verna; 8.09- 14.03 lacs VW Vento; 8.63- 14.32 lacs Skoda Rapid- 9–14.26 lacs. Suzuki Ciaz; A no nonsense premuim car which is not the best but makes a strong case for itself with bullet proof reliability and after sales service. Low maintenance. Hyundai Verna; Probably the champion here with excellent appeal, strong performance an premium feel. Low Maintenance. VW Vento and Skoda Rapide; A typical German car with a fuss free character. Strong in every area except let down by high maintenance. All these cars are really very good and offer high degrees of sophistication. It really boils down to one’s personal needs on which one to buy. Drive fast, Drive sensibly, Drive Safe. Hope it helps!!!

Which is a safer car in India between the Volkswagen Vento and Honda City?

Go for Toyota yaris if safety is your concern. It offers safety features from the base variant (like seven airbags) which are not offered in city & vento even in their higher configurations.

Is the VW Vento any good?

I own Vento TDI 1.5 AT DSG 2015 model as a second owner since past one year and previously owned Skoda Rapid 1.5 TDI MT. In general i agree with all the points mentioned by people. Yes, it's maintenance cost is higher than its siblings in Maruti or Toyota or Hyundai. If you are a person whose use of car is just going from point A to B, and mostly drive in the city then don't bother about Vento or Rapid. These German machines are for those who are passionate about drive, safety, feel, and that comes at a slightly higher maintenance cost than Maruti and perhaps for some parts like Clutch plate and suspension, lasts shorter than its siblings. But otherwise, just make sure to use the right Engine Oil (5W40 fully synthetic, costing about 4000 to 4500 for 5L) and genuine replacement parts in every service. And for regular service, outide Authorised service station it costs about 8–9k every 15000 kms or 1 year whichever is earlier. If you are looking for an automatic, there is absolutely nothing that matches Vento DSG. It's even better than the DSG gearbox on Kia Seltos or MG Hector as per trusted reviews. Just the very point that Vento is my second car from the VW family back to back should say it all. I just love the quality, the attention to detail, the practicality, the safety. (2012 Indian model was sent to Asian NCap and it got full 5 stars. And there is absolutely no change in the body since then). I have faced two terrible accidents with fully loaded trucks: one was a side impact and another was a rear impact. Both were slow impacts (less than 10 km/h) butbhuge momentum. The cars (Skoda Rapid and VW Vento) survived extremely gracefully, causing not even a shock inside the cabin and minimal damage to the car as well. And both times my entire family including 2 young kids were inside Even the fuel economy in diesel is quite good. I get about 11–12 in city (Bangalore jams) and 18–20 on highways. The stability at high speeds, the pickup, handliy, cabin, engine, transmission: all are just top notch. To me this aspect of quality, safety handling is far more important than slightly higher maintenance costs. I know at least 3 cases of Baleno crashing sideways at slow speed and inspite of airbags opening the driver didn't survive. So you choose what you want. A great quality and safety or just a tin ka dabba which gives great mileage, great resale value but sort of guarantees fatalities in case of even smaller accidents.

Is skoda rapid a good car for a daily run?

Hey. Thanks for the A2A. :) 1. Skoda Rapid and Volkswagen Vento are same cars. Just rebadged. 2. Both these cars are very competent and have beautiful engines. Plus the gearbox is a great one on both. (Manual & Automatic.) 3. Feature wise they were a bit lacking before but with the latest models, they have a lot going for them. 4. Both of them have ABS and dual airbags standard with Hill Hold, ESP & TCS also available on automatic models. 5. All said and done. They're great vehicles which you'll love to drive and own. You can go for either. But go for the one with a better dealer. :) 6. Real Time Mileage in city and highway respectively - Petrol Manual : 9.5 & 15.5 Petrol Automatic : 10 & 17 Diesel Manual : 13.3 & 17.3 Diesel Automatic : 13.9 & 18.3 Choose your choice of fuel wisely. All the best. :) Happy Motoring!

How safe are Volkswagen cars?

Volkswagen makes good quality cars, of international standards, safest build among other car manufacturer's, Above is a famous pic of Volkswagen vento sandwhiched between two trucks, all the passangers were safe, moreover Volkswagen cars have a crumple zone, This crash is a perfect example of ,how crumple zones work during accidents,. The Vento in question may be a total-loss due to the impact it has taken, but the front and rear crumple zones of the car have done their job of absorbing the impact and deforming. This deformation is what prevents the force of the impact being transferred to the occupants of the vehicle. The other, great bit about all the VW cars is its solid body structure, that stays intact even during massive impacts, protecting its occupants. A solid/stable body structure or passenger compartment isolates the passengers from the crash. Along with seatbelts and airbags, a solid body structure is one of the reason why the passengers in the Vento escaped this crash without injury. A lot of car makers compromise on the body structures of the car by using lower strength metal, and lighter chassis designs. They do this to reduce the cost of the car (both to manufacture and sell), and to increase fuel efficiency. However, many automakers such as Volkswagen, Skoda, and Ford are known to build cars in India with strong and stable body structures that can protect passengers during big accidents I myself own a Volkswagen Ameo and it's make quality and driving dynamics are much better than other brands I own. Belive me safety is the first thing a buyer should look for while purchasing a car. As your life safety should not be compromised for a few more thousand rupees. Thanks.

Which is a better car, Honda City or VW Vento?

I’ve owned both The Honda City AT for 7 years and Vento TSI HL Plus with DSG since the last two months. I think I can answer this question with my experience. Here are the points. Reliability. In my 7 years of ownership of Honda City it never I mean NEVER failed to start. Just turn the key and the engine comes to life. Vento is new one for me but the way it sounds and drives it seems pretty solid. I am sure if maintained properly it will turn out to be pretty reliable. Engine. I drove the city for.. well see it yourself, over a period of seven years and it still drove like new. The engine was absolutely silent and No vibrations or sound can be felt at a red light. Pretty powerful and peppy engine of the city. Vento on the other hand has a smaller engine but it is Turbocharged!! Resulting in great power and amazing torque which the city lags. Overall the Vento’s TSI engine Is far more advanced than Honda’s I-VTEC decades old engine. Drive quality. Both cars have entirely different character. City on one hand is a super relaxed car with a feather touch steering. Vento has a speed sensing EPS which makes the steering hard as the speed increases. This increases the control giving confidence to the driver. Ever wondered what will happen if you suddenly turned the steering at high speeds? It would be difficult in a Vento to do so compared to City. Transmission. Vento has the best system, the DSG with lightening fast shifts, and the smoothest shifting experience. The city has CVT which is smooth and relaxed not the best way of transferring power to the wheel in case you want acceleration. The manual mode in DSG is superb and takes only a few milliseconds to complete a shift giving a feel of a sports car. City’s CVT could have been better to use the Engine to full potential. Mileage. Contrary to the beliefs that VW cannot give high mileage, mine give excellent mileage see image…. Owing to a smaller engine of 1.2 L it is frugal in traffic compared to a city which owing to a bigger 1.5 L engine consumes more petrol. (BTW the new Audi A4 has a 1.4 L TSI engine ) Safety: both cars are safe the top spec City has 6 airbags while mine has 4 however its not just airbags which make a car safe. Vento has ESP and Traction control which should have been there kn City as well. Overall Vento is safer than a Honda City. Tyres: Vento has wider tyres than city making it more in control compared to the city. Price: top spec variants of both cars are almost 2 Lakh apart. Vento with all discount schemes is cheaper than a city. But lacks a sunroof and leather seats. Maintainance cost is comparable and is around 1 re per Km. Looks. Vento with its DRL looks beautiful compared to a city whose DRL’s do not shine as bright. City is slightly longer than a Vento due to its long bonnet. Overall if you were to choose between the two, it is a difficult decision to make. Test drive both cars and then make your choice. Update. I took the Vento from DELHI to Chandigarh clocking an average of 18.5 ,kmpl, using 93 octane fuel. It Drove super smooth, max speed I could test was 157 kmph. During return the temperature was 45degrees but the AC made the cabin super cool. No fatigue at all. Overall I’m really pleased to buy the Vento.
