Exploring the Volkswagen Ameo
Ameo is the latest product from the house of the German car maker Volkswagen. Volkswagen Ameo is a compact sedan model that is engineered in German techniques with an Indian heart. This German car maker has entered the compact sedan car market in India with the Ameo which is the compact version of the Volkswagen Polo. The Volkswagen Ameo is particularly targeted at the Indian consumers, in order to make the most of the tax benefits of cars under the 4 metre length as imposed by the government.
Volkswagen has played safe with the designs of this compact sedan, but the Ameo has still got the good looks of the Polo with an identical radiator grille, head lights and front bumper. Although the Volkswagen Ameo comes with 16 inch wheels, but if rumours are to be believed, then it is said the production model of this car will probably come with 15 inch alloy wheels. Stepping inside, the interiors of the Ameo are very aesthetically made with a highly elegant design. But it is somewhat disappointing that it comes with fabric upholstery instead of a leather option. But the leather wrapped steering wheel along with the premium quality of plastic used, does add an enhanced look to the interiors of this car.
The infotainment system is also a brand new one and is great both in terms of the touch screen hard ware as well as the user interface. In fact, we can definitely say that this is the best touch screen control unit in the sub 11 lakh price range. The Ameo also gets the best in class automatic climate control system. Coming to the leg space, the Volkswagen Ameo is just not as spacious as its competitors namely Honda Amaze and the Ford Figo Aspire but it is definitely much more spacious than the Volkswagen Polo. It quite looks like the Volkswagen Polo with a boot which is well integrated with the car design and does not look abrupt. In fact the boot is quite spacious – the rear seats can be folded further in order to provide a larger storage area.
The Ameo is powered by both a petrol 1.2 litre engine and a 1.5 litre diesel engine. Both engines will come mated to a 5 speed manual gearbox. The Volkswagen Ameo is expected to be launched during the latter half of 2016. Experts say that this car is going to be a promising one, because Volkswagen is going to deliver value for money to its customers.
