Volkswagen launches two new Vento variants - the Vento ALLSTAR and Vento GT

Aside from launching the latest variant of the Volkswagen Beetle 1.2TSI for the Malaysian market, Volkswagen Passenger Cars Malaysia (VPCM) had launched two new variants of their Vento sedan. The Vento ALLSTAR and the Vento GT. These are limited run variants of the Vento 1.2TSI Highline and the Vento 1.6 Comfortline respectively that come with additional goodies at attractive prices.


First off is the Vento ALLSTAR. The Vento ALLSTAR is the second ALLSTAR edition introduced by VPCM, with the first being the Polo ALLSTAR. Priced from RM78,888 it is available in Reflex Silver and Candy White. The Vento ALLSTAR is a Vento 1.6 which comes with RM7,000 worth of exclusive accessories such as leather seats, aluminium sports pedals, rear spoiler, black door strips and trunk garnish, ‘ALLSTAR’ scuff plates, emblems and carpet mats. 

It basically makes the 1.6 Comfortline that is sold here into a Highline variant but it gets some extra trim or garnishing making it a little more special. Note the black stripes at the sides remind you of a certain 'AllStar' model of sneakers from Converse. A lean towards something sportier I suppose.

I also have to say that the Vento 1.6 sedans offers a good package in terms of reliability and maintenance. No turbocharging and not dual clutch gearbox means this is a simple car to maintain in the long run. It comes highly recommended by us actually.

As for the Vento GT,  it is priced from RM89,888 and comes with a total of RM9,000 worth of exclusive accessories such as a “Satin” black roof and exterior mirror wraps, black door strips, leather seats, aluminium sports pedals, GT Aerokit, ‘GT’ scuff plates, emblems and carpet mats. Two colour options are available - Reflex Silver and Candy White. This folks, is what you can call a Vento 1.2 TSI Highline variant with a bodykit and some extra trim. 

So with this you can get a bodykitted Vento. What car modding enthusiasts could benefit actually as the car comes standard already with the bodykit.  More flash for the same amount of cash actually. Or slightly lesser for both variants actually. These are good value Volkswagen. You really get more equipment and parts for the price. And that's not just it. VPCM also announced an  Additional Raya Promo for the Vento as well as the Passat line-up.

There is a 5-year free maintenance package for the entire Vento and Passat family. This offer is valid till the 31st of July 2017. Additionally, those who book any Volkswagen cars from now till 30th June will receive petrol vouchers worth RM500. 

Our test drive of the Vento 1.2 TSI is here if you're interested in reading about what we think about it.
