Overview

Volkswagen Ameo is the first India-specific product from the German automaker. Making a car for a particular market is not the usual cup of tea of the auto giant like Volkswagen. However, when every other carmaker is showing commitment, VW also took a bold step to come out of its comfort zone and plunge into one of the most bankable categories in the Indian auto market. The compact sedan is manufactured at the company’s Chakan plant in India. Volkswagen Ameo with its stylish design and upmarket interiors has been getting some share of the pie from the sub-4 meter sedan segment.
Looking at the outer profile, you will notice the strong resemblance to the Polo. Underpinning the PQ25 platform, the compact sedan is based on the same platform as Polo. If you are the fan of clear and crisp lines on Polo then you will appreciate the Volkswagen Ameo’s design as well. Front façade is the same except the new horizontal fog lamps and an updated bumper. Side profile also takes cues from the Polo except the new alloy wheels. Rear part gets most of the changes like new tail lamps and reworked rear bumper. And along with that, a simple character line goes from the headlamps all the way to the tail lamps that look pretty awesome. Overall, despite the understated design, it’s grown up. Volkswagen Ameo is available in vibrant shades namely Blue Silk, Toffee Brown, Carbon Steel, Reflex Silver and Candy White.
The inner cabin is done with dual tone black and beige scheme. Ameo’s cabin is the part that impresses the most and has the feel-good factor. The high-quality material and fit and finish of the plastic are hard to match. The beautiful steering wheel and the rotary switches on the dashboard are quite pleasing, all this help Ameo provide a premium feel. The feature list includes AC, cruise control, keyless entry, rear parking sensor, auto-dimming IRVM, climate control, a touchscreen unit that supports Bluetooth and MirrorLink. Other connectivity options include MP3 player with USB, AUX-in, CD player and SD card slots.
Talking about the specifications, Volkswagen Ameo gets its power the same Polo sourced 1.0L MPI petrol mill that can churn the output of 76PS and maximum torque of 95Nm. The petrol engine comes with 5-speed manual gearbox. Another engine is the 1.5L diesel unit that is capable of generating the power output of 108bhp and peak torque of 250Nm. The diesel mill comes with the option of 5-speed manual or 7-speed DSG unit.
In terms of safety, Volkswagen Ameo comes equipped with features like dual airbags, ABS, rain sensing wipers, cornering lights, engine immobilizer, central locking, power door lock, turn indicators on ORVM and 3-point seat belt in front and rear. Volkswagen has upped the ante in the sub-4 meter category against Maruti Swift Dzire and Honda Amaze, Tata Zest, Hyundai Xcent and Ford Figo Aspire.
Volkswagen Ameo is offered in four variants: Trendline, Comfortline, Highline and Highline Plus. As far as the pricing is concerned, Volkswagen Ameo’s base trim Trendline gets the price tag of Rs. 5.62 lakh for the petrol and Rs. 6.65 lakh for the diesel variant. Its mid-range trim Comfortline gets the price tag of Rs. 6.16 lakh and Rs. 7.59 lakh for the petrol and diesel variants respectively. The top-selling trim 1.0L MPI Highline is available at the price tag of Rs. 7.15 lakh while the range-topping Highline Plus variant is tagged at Rs. 7.58 lakh for the petrol and Rs. 8.71 lakh for the diesel trim, ex-showroom, New Delhi.

Interior

Coming to interiors, the Ameo is ditto to Polo hatchback and it’s not a bad approach at all. From clocks to flat-bottomed steering and the touchscreen infotainment, all are familiar. The sense-good feel is evident as the car appears to be expensive from the inside. The quality of material is way above every other car in the segment and the touch & feel and fit-finish levels are also nice, thanks to the pearl black and desert beige colour scheme used on the fabric. What’s really interesting is the arm rest with under storage space created for the driver. However, Ameo doesn’t come with rear arm rest, but the carmaker has compensated that feel-good factor with the rear ac vents.
Talking about the seating and space, for a car measuring less than 4-meter, creating maximum interior space is a challenge for every carmaker. Volkswagen too has done its bit to ensure maximum comfort inside. The front seats offer good support while the back of the front seats has been scooped out in order to give more knee room. And while you won’t get leather upholstery like in other rivals, the fabric seems to have been lifted from the segment above cars. The legroom and the knee room at the rear is decent for a car of this stature.
In terms of equipment, Ameo gets automatic climate control, cooled glovebox, auto-dimming IRVM, rain sensing wipers, cruise control and power one-touch up/down facility on all the four windows. The center console houses a touchscreen infotainment system that not only care of your entertainment aspect with USB, Aux-In, SD-card and Bluetooth connectivity, but also relays feed from the rear parking camera. However, the inclusion of Android Auto and Apple CarPlay would have been the icing on the cake. Other comfort aspects include height adjustable driver seat, electrically adjustable ORVM and multi-functional display that provides info such as distance traveled, traveling time, average speed, digital speed display and fuel economy.

Exterior

In terms of looks, the Ameo appears to be a carbon copy of siblings Polo and Vento. This is indeed a good approach as it gets the signature face. But on the other hand, there is nothing unique or no major element to differentiate it from other cars in the family. There are differences but they are so minuscule to be noticed. For example, the front overhang of Polo measuring 35mm has been reduced to add more length and provide better flow to the sedan profile.
At the front, the car boasts of dual barrel halogen headlights and multi-slat grille. The revised front bumper which was incorporated in the Polo facelift makes its way into Ameo as well. The bumper also features a chrome strip that runs along the length while the fog lamps at each side are loaded with static cornering lights. The side profile is also identical to the sibling however, things start to vary after the C-pillar with the integration of the boot. Further, the car sits on 15-inch wheels which are also borrowed from the Polo hatchback.
While compact sedans are infamous for their disproportionate viewing angles, Volkswagen Ameo is an exception. Yes, the carmaker has done a near-perfect job in integrating the boot to the rear profile. The taillights with faux-LED graphics have their distinct design and with the lines on the boot lid, it seems it’s an attempt to lend a wider appearance to the car. Moreover, there are some interesting bits including laser welded roof which gives a classic look from the rear. Overall, the carmaker has done its best to execute the design of Ameo.

Mileage Running Cost

As both the engines are inherited from Polo hatch, they are excellent on fuel efficiency. The 3-cylinder petrol engine is able to make ARAI certified mileage of 19.44kmpl. On the contrary, the diesel one reads 21.73kmpl in automatic and 22kmpl in the manual version which is fantastic from a VW car.

Comfort Suspension

The suspension set-up features McPherson strut with stabilizer bar at the front and semi-independent trailing arm at the rear. This sweet combination is perfect for markets like India. At low speeds, the car feels solid and sophisticated just like a German car should be.
The compliant suspension absorbs road undulations and bumps quite easily and the daily drive to work is never hindered. The handling dynamics are certainly superior to its counterpart.

Engine Performance

The Polo traits continue under the hood as well. The petrol unit is the 1.0L MPI engine which replaced the 1.2L engine working earlier. The BS-VI compliant 999cc engine makes 76PS and 95Nm of max torque while the transmission duties are handled by a 5-speed manual. Lack of an automatic gearbox in the petrol engine is surely a downside. The overall output of the new 1.0L engine is almost similar to the earlier 1.2L one, however, the torque throughput has been reduced by 15Nm. This will surely disappoint many buyers as the earlier engine was already rated underpowered. This is a chink in the German automaker’s armor.
The 1.5L 4-cylinder TDI diesel engine is also the same working in Polo, capable of producing 110PS and 250Nm of peak torque. The diesel engine with this immense power outpaces every other rival in the segment. The engine can be availed with the option of 5-speed or 7-speed DSG automatic transmission. As opposed to the petrol engine, the diesel one is quite a player. The motor gets updated turbocharger which makes it a good companion in both city and highways. The 7-speed further elevates the fun-to-drive factor transmitting adequate power with smooth gear shifts.

Braking Safety

The car incorporates disc brakes at front and drums at the rear, just like other vehicles in the class. The brakes have a strong bite and don’t feel trouble at stopping from high speeds. For more braking strength, the carmaker has provided ABS as standard fitment in the car.
In terms of safety, the standard features also include dual front airbags, height adjustable head restraints, and rear fog lamps. Move on to the top variants and you will get electronic stabilization programme (ESP) on diesel trims, rear defogger, static cornering lights, hill hold control, rear parking camera with sensors and auto-dimming IRVM.
