BENGALURU:  The German car maker Volkswagen has impressed its Indian customers with its wide range of vehicles— Polo, Vento, Passat and many more. The autocar manufacturer launched its Indian specific car ‘Ameo’ in Bengaluru with a starting price of INR 5.33 Lakh (ex-showroom price).

Ameo stands between the slot of Polo and Vento. This new sedan has same wheelbase as that of Polo with mechanically no changes. However, the German car maker has reduced the front overhang by 35 mm and added it to the rear, making the car look more proportionate. The hood, headlamps, side fenders, doors and the upper grille are the same as that of Polo. But the roof is lowered by 15mm, with a sweeping C-pillar making the car more aerodynamic than the hatchback ‘Polo’.

Volkswagen Ameo is powered with a 1.2 litre, 3-cylinder MPI Petrol Engine producing power of 74bhp and torque of 114 Nm; also the company plans to launch the diesel variant boosted with a 1.5 litre, 4 cylinder TDI Diesel Engine. These engines are coupled with 5-speed manual transmission gear box.

Volkswagen brings in three different variants—Treadline, Comfortline, and Highline with prices ranging from INR 6 to 8 Lakhs. These variants are equipped with features like cruise control, centre arm rest, rain sensing wipers, static cornering lights and anti-pinch power windows. Keeping safety on the frontline, Ameo empowers ABS and dual front bags. So, this weekend get out to visit the nearby showroom and you can have Ameo test drive to book it.
