New design sketches of the 2012 Volkswagen Vento (aka Polo sedan) have surfaced on the web.

Essentially a Polo with a trunk instead of a hatch, the Vento will likely ride on a 50mm longer wheelbase (than the Polo). While this is a minor change, the additional length will allow for increased rear seat head and legroom.

Engine options will likely include a 1.2-liter TSI, a 1.6-liter TDI, and naturally-aspirated 1.2- and 1.4-liter units. They will be backed up by a five-speed manual, a six-speed manual, and a 7-speed DSG.

The Vento will go on sale in India in July, so expect an unveiling shortly.
