The car also gets new gunmetal finish alloy wheels, while a new Sunshine red colour option in addition to the existing paint schemes available on the cars.

Changes on the new Vento are almost similar with an updated black mesh grille and gunmetal finish for the alloy wheels. What are different though are the new LED headlamps and black housings for the projector fog lamps.

Both cars continue largely unchanged on the inside and continue with the rock solid feel. Features and equipment also remain the same; however VW has now added a new Volkswagen Connect feature as standard on the Highline trim.

Volkswagen has also once again shifted its showroom to Porvorim; the new address now stands to be where the earlier Chevrolet showroom once existed.  However while speaking  to Auto Goa the dealer Mody Auto Corp has cited the improved ambience and loads of space available at the new premises over the cramped and congested old premises at Panjim. The service centre still counties to remain at Verna industrial estate though unchanged.
