What's New?

Volkswagen Ameo is the first sub-compact sedan from the German carmaker for the Indian market offering a bunch of first in class features. Currently available only with petrol engine, the sedan derives power from the same 1.0 litre MPI engine that does duty on the Polo hatchback. Missing out on the oil burner, Volkswagen will add diesel variants to the line-up around festive season and a DSG autobox will also be introduced later on the diesel powered Ameo.

Ameo not just marks Volkswagen’s foray in the competitive sub-four meter segment but it is also the first made-in-India model from the company built exclusively for the Indian market. Priced between Rs 5.24 lakh to Rs 9.32 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi), Ameo is the most affordable offering from Volkswagen India.  Reminiscent of the Polo hatchback, Ameo has a similar looking front profile as that of the popular B segment small car. Sublime side panels and rear add more charm to this sub-four meter sedan. Coming from the stables of Volkswagen, the cabin is packed with some of the first in segment features that bring it a notch above rivals in the populous segment.
