Live webcast: Volkswagen unveils the Ameo compact sedan in India

02 Feb 2016 / 0

The Volkswagen Ameo is a compact sub-four metre compact sedan that will rival the likes of the Maruti Swift Dzire, Ford Figo Aspire, Honda Amaze, Hyundai Xcent and Tata Zest. The VW Ameo is not a chopped up version of the Vento, but a sedan based on the Polo instead. The Ameo shares the PQ25 platform with the Polo and the Vento.

The Volkswagen Ameo will get the smaller rear doors from the Polo and the face is expected to be similar to the hatchback too, but we expect it to get LED daytime running lights that are expected to make their way to the 2016 Vento. The rear windshield will rake sharper than the Vento.

The Volkswagen Ameo will rival other compact sedans like the Maruti Suzuki Dzire, the Honda Amaze, the Ford Figo Aspire, the Tata Zest and the Hyundai Xcent. Though late to the party, the promises to be a more premium offering.

We expect the same engine options as the VW Polo – a 1.2-litre petrol and a 1.5-litre diesel. VW’s compact sedan is also likely to make the same power and torque as the hatchback.
