About Volkswagen Ameo

With the Ameo, Volkswagen has finally made its debut in the compact sedan space. Volkswagen aims at tapping into the extremely competitive sub-4 metrre sedan space with a car that boasts of superb quality interiors and reliable engine options. In the Indian market, the Ameo will lock horns against the likes of the Maruti Suzuki Swift DZire, the Honda Amaze, the Hyundai Xcent, Tata Zest and the Ford Figo Aspire.

Volkswagen Ameo Overview

Volkswagen has launched a new GT Line trim for the Ameo. Based on the top-spec Highline Plus diesel-DSG variant, it is priced at Rs 10 lakh (ex-showroom). The GT Line packs a handful of styling elements like a blacked-out roof, ORVMs, body decals, badges and a black colour spoiler to make it a tad sportier. The Ameo GT Line can be had with the diesel-AT powertrain only.

Q. I am planning to buy VW Ameo, Diesel, base variant. How is the vehicle in terms of maintenance & part replacement?
  • I've had Ameo Highline Plus diesel DSG for 3 years, driven 70000 kms, the parts I replaced till date other than regular service parts are mc pherson strut suspension connecting rods and tyres... Ameo is a beast in a small body... Only problem with any VW or German car is when you plan to buy your next car you'll feel others as no match to German cars... Only thing I put custom and felt like was to change the tyre brand to continental rather than oem tyres...
  • If you get Diesel DSG... Its a beast like no other... I have driven Ameo diesel Highline Plus DSG for 3 years and 70000 kms... I have put continental tyres after 60000 kms and just changed the front suspension connecting rods till date... Only problem is my next car can't be a VW... You will love VW if you love to drive... If you love economy and getting stuck on mud, buy a Korean car...
  • Fantastic economical ruf n tuf with full of luxury features buy the vehicle without 2nd thought (I suggest Petrol version) having this vehicle since July 2017

Q. I am confused which one to buy Amaze or VW Ameo?
  • New Amaze really makes a point worthy at the outset now . Ameo definitely a good vehicle from VW with segment best features about a 1.5 year ago. . The vehicle did not click much due to lack of penetration of service network and post service /spares . Ignore it a bit is a very good vehicle .Now comes to Gen2 Amaze is much refined with interior and exterior .And Totally engineered new . Infotainment system of Digipad2 and many segment best features are a best bet with Amaze . Honda quality and Promise are best in Cars .New Amaze Best in compact sedan segment
  • Well vw and honda both are good more power at vw but understand that honda has better chance at service level across than vw . again you can take a call as GM motors have closed there shops which many 11 other manufacturers such GM, VW, SKODA and so on share the same manufacturers engine.
  • I would say Amaze would be better if your choice is petrol and if you want a silent car then Ameo on the other hand is a noisy diesel best car. I have owned the petrol brio and ameo diesel is so far good. Amaze is more comfy and smooth.. Ameo is a performance beast but less comfort and too noisy..

    It is a performance car for individuals into sheer love for driving.Not at all a family car, Okay in comfort for backseaters, Superb comfort for the driver seating.If you wanna go for a beast car which gives you an experience of enthusiast for the love of driving, Then this car is for you ( go for dsg for the pleasure of racing on indian roads ).You can easily do 185 to 200, On highway, You won't know anything till 160, After 160 you would feel a bit fast on india expresss highways on speed breakers.As indian roads are never made for sheer love for driving cars, Just made for normal usage.And if you can't give around 12000 for service, Then this car is not for you, Because of performance you need pay such amount for service.

    Volkswagen ameo is absolutely top in performance and comfort. When features increase obviously there will a lag in milege. So mileage is less when compared. But comfort, style, features, everything else are top in segment. Cruise is one of the best in segment. Then power of engine. Then interiors, alloy wheels, tyres are just top. No words to describe. Best of it.

Volkswagen Ameo Expert Reviews

Volkswagen stealthily updated its Ameo and Polo lineup with a new 1.0-litre petrol engine in March this year. But does this lighter, more compact and more powerful mill inject some oomph into the rather bland Ameo petrol?
