Volkswagen Ameo to first be launched with petrol engine only

The Volkswagen Ameo, when launched, will be offered only with a petrol engine. The diesel engined variants will arrive later. This mill is the 1.2 three-cylinder engine that produces 74bhp and 110Nm of torque. It is offered only with a five-speed manual and powers most of the petrol variants of the Polo.

The diesel, on the other hand, will be the 1.5-litre four-cylinder unit powering a variety of Volkswagen and Skoda vehicles. This engine produces 89bhp and 230Nm of torque. As standard, it is mated to a five-speed manual but in the Rapid and Vento can also be had with a seven-speed DSG. It is believed that Volkswagen is updating this mill and will launch the Ameo directly with the updated engine.  

The Ameo was showcased at the 2016 Auto Expo and is VW’s entry into the competitive compact sedan and will rival the likes of the Ford Figo, Hyundai Xcent, Maruti Suzuki Dzire and Honda Amaze. Although, we haven’t driven one, we did get to experience the Ameo from the passenger seat and you can read about that here.  

It is expected to be launched by the middle of this year. It will be priced in the range of Rs 6 lakh to Rs 8 lakh.
