Volkswagen Passenger Cars Malaysia (VPCM) has quietly updated the Volkswagen Vento sedan – the range-topping 1.2 TSI Highline variant now gains LED headlights at no extra cost.

The new lamps, which feature LED low and high beams as well as LED daytime running lights, are essentially the same items introduced on the facelifted Polo in other markets. With them, the Vento joins the Mazda 2 and the recently-facelifted Honda City in offering LED headlights in the B-segment sedan class.

A new RCD 330G infotainment system – with a five-inch touchscreen, MirrorLink smartphone screen mirroring, Bluetooth connectivity, USB and auxiliary ports and an SD card slot – has also been added to the kit list, a change extended to the mid-spec 1.6 Comfortline as well.

Otherwise, equipment count on the Highline remains identical, and include 16-inch Syenit two-tone alloy wheels, Cable fabric upholstery, Climatronic automatic air-conditioning with rear vents, all-round auto-up/down power windows, cruise control, four speakers, four airbags and stability control.

Mechanicals have also been left unchanged, with the Highline continuing to be powered by a 105 PS/175 Nm 1.2 litre turbocharged TSI petrol engine mated to a seven-speed DSG dry dual-clutch transmission. As mentioned, pricing remains identical, at RM94,461 on-the-road without insurance.
