Volkswagen Launches Ameo GT Line At ₹7.99 Lakh

  • Sep 10, 2019

Leading German automobile manufacturer Volkswagen has upgraded the Ameo, close on the heels of launching the facelift versions of the Vento and Polo. Like the two latter cars, the company has introduced a sportier GT Line trim of the compact sedan. The Ameo GT Line petrol version commands an ex-showroom price of ₹7.99 lakh, while the diesel model is pegged at ₹9.99 lakh.

The features and safety apparatus of the Ameo GT Line are borrowed from the current Highline Plus version. Both versions have an identical price. Features include rain-sensing wipers, cruise control, chrome-finished door handles, a touchscreen infotainment system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay support, and a parking camera. Other major equipment in the Ameo GT Line comprises electrically folding outside rearview mirrors (ORVMs), a leather-covered steering wheel, 16-inch alloy wheels, a boot lid spoiler, and auto-dimming inside rearview mirrors (IRVMs). Dual front airbags and antilock braking system (ABS) are standard across all versions. Unlike the Vento and Polo, Volkswagen has not lent the Ameo a new front grille and bumper design.

The Ameo is available in two engine-transmission combinations. The four-cylinder, 1.5-litre turbocharged diesel motor produces 110PS maximum power and 250Nm peak torque. The three-cylinder 1.0-litre petrol engine, on the other hand, outputs 76PS maximum power and 95Nm peak torque. Both engines are paired with a manual gearbox. The Ameo GT Line diesel can be had with a 7-speed automatic direct-shift gearbox (DSG) transmission.

The GT Line will face competition from Maruti Suzuki Dzire which is the leader in the compact sedan segment. It will also lock horns with the Honda Amaze, Ford Aspire, and the Hyundai Xcent.

The Volkswagen Ameo was introduced exclusively for the Indian market in 2016. Until now the car was available in the Trendline, Comfortline and Highline Plus versions. The Comfortline Plus and Highline versions have since been discontinued.
