The India-specific Volkswagen Vento will be based on VW Group's India-centric MQB A0-IN platform and is likely to come with a host of cosmetic updates over the outgoing model.
Going by the official renders, the new car would get a three-slat grille, redesigned front as well as rear bumpers, diamond-cut alloy wheels, and new LED taillamps.
