Volkswagen has begun deliveries of its Ameo compact sedan. The car was showcased at the 2016 Auto Expo and was launched for Rs 5.24 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi). The automaker has launched the car with only the petrol option while diesels will come later this year.

This move has come in the light of it upgrading the engine to increase power from 103bhp to 108bhp. While the increase is not too much, it is, however, expected to bump up the overall fuel efficiency.

In the petrol guise, the Ameo is powered by a three-cylinder motor that produces 74bhp/110Nm. Power is sent to the front wheels via a five-speed manual. The diesel will be the 1.5-litre four-cylinder unit that produces 108bhp/250Nm of torque. This engine gets the option of the five-speed manual or a seven-speed DSG. We have spotted this car testing outside Pune.


Commenting on the launch, Michael Mayer, director, Volkswagen India said, “The Ameo has garnered positive response from the prospective customers ever since its debut at the Delhi Motor Show in February this year and its journey through key Indian cities. We are very happy to bring this made in India and made for India sedan to our customers now, as we initiate the deliveries. For the Ameo customers, we have also introduced special care packages to ensure a positive ownership experience along with the best of technology, safety and various first in class features at an attractive price.”
