Volkswagen India is likely to begin deliveries of its Ameo, its first sub four-metre sedan, in July.
Europe’s leading car manufacturer had unveiled the Ameo at the Delhi Motor Show in February. The Ameo will be available with two fuel options - 1.2L 3-cylinder MPI and 1.5L 4-cylinder TDI engine.
The Volkswagen Ameo has been designed and engineered for the Indian market and will be manufactured at its plant in Chakan near Pune. Continuing Volkswagen’s core design philosophy of timeless appeal and sharp, distinctive lines, the Ameo has special design highlights like the front spoiler lip in body colour or the distinctive fold in the outer edges of the front bumper.
The 1.2L MPI engine will be mated to a 5-speed manual gear box. The 1.5L TDI engine will be available with 5-speed manual transmission and 7-speed DSG transmission options.
All variants will come equipped with dual front airbags and ABS as standard. Keeping in focus the comfort and convenience of its driver and passengers, Volkswagen Ameo will be equipped with first in segment features like cruise control, rain sensing wipers along with static cornering lights and the dynamic Touchscreen multimedia music system with Mirror link, I-pod connectivity, phonebook / SMS viewer.
