Based on the Volkswagen Vento platform, the Vento is carved out of a simple yet elegant German design. As a result the Vento wears a timeless design that makes the vehicle age quite gracefully.

Overall the VW Vento sports a clean swept back headlamp design that look stylish and modern. On either side of the headlamps was the horizontal grille that is dominated by a large Volkswagen logo at the centre. While early models of the Vento did not come equipped with DRLs, the 2021 models do have this feature equipped on higher variants. The bonnet gets some muscle creases that run from the edge of the grille and integrate into the A-pillars. Overall, the Vento was designed with minimal lines that support a blend of sharp German design and curvy aesthetics.

Instead, the VW vento looks proportional while featuring evidently raised suspension and increased ground clearance of 168mm. The chunky seven spoke designed alloys look dapper.
