Must Read Questions & Answers Before Buying Ameo

Q. Hi, can you tell me rear side of Ameo is comfortable for 3 men sitting on a long trip.
  • Speaking of the rear cabin, Volkswagen has used the Polo’s underpinnings and not the stretched version which the Vento uses.The space inside the Ameo is decent as compared to the Polo’s, which is not known of its rear legroom. However, Volkswagen has managed to make minor changes to the seat to make the rear of the car more accommodating than its hatch sibling. Cabin best suited for four occupants. Rear-seat legroom and headroom could have been better as well.
  • If you push front seat intelligently backwards, then there is sufficient leg spaces for both the front and rear passengers, but if you push too much backwards then it's a problem. No need to push front seat too much backwards. Average sized Indian persons including driver of 5 can seat comfortably, head room and shoulder room is good.
  • You are absolutely right. Wanted to go in for Ameo but dropped on experiencing the right rear seat. Why on earth they bring out such poorly conceived cars. If we were in design we would have never allowed the same to be frozen for production. Really funny these guys at VW.Thanks

Q. I am planning to buy Volkswagen Ameo petrol Highline model. Please suggest me if it is a good choice based on your experience. Please give your valuable feedback.
  • The Ameo can be a great compact sedan to own if build quality, performance, features and value rank high on your priority list. The Ameo has a big, for some deal breaking, fault - the rear seats are the most cramped in its class. The top-of-the-line Highline variant comes fully loaded with segment-first features which help the Ameo match some executive sedans as well. The Ameo Highline is loaded to the gills. The Ameo Highline powered by the diesel motor costs Rs 8.59 and the sedan powered by the petrol engine costs Rs 7.35 lakh. The price difference for jumping from the Comfortline variant to the Highline variant is about Rs 1.01 lakh for the petrol version and Rs 81,000 for the diesel. Those looking for some extra oomph can opt for the ‘Plus’ variant, which can be bought by paying extra Rs 10,000, as it gets larger 16-inch alloy wheels. The automatic transmission is available at a premium of Rs 1.30 lakh for the Highline variants and Rs 10,000 for the Highline Plus variant. These variants make a lot of sense for those who don’t want to purchase a C-segment sedan but want something more compact with all the features on tap.
  • It's good engine is noisy. If you buy then think of maintenance cost and resale VW does not have a resale value Gondor a ford or a Hyundai good cars
  • Best compact sedan! & performance wise same gearbox and engine of vento & rapid which costs 16.5 onroad for DSG diesel varient!! Go for diese

    One and half year after purchase engine had to be replaced due to manufacture defect. Two years after purchase battery went dead . Dealer Sundaram motors said that battery had only one year warranty,so we had to buy new one for Rs. 7500/-. This car is not worth buying,waste of money and only trouble 😞

    So this car might seem like the costly types but so far in 2 years, I have only enjoyed the performance.The maintenance cost seems appropriate when focusing on the performance it delivers, both in the city and on the highway.

    Volkswagen Ameo 1.0-litre Petrol: Road Test Review

    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?

Volkswagen Ameo Highlights

Volkswagen finally ventured into sub-4-meter sedan category with Ameo compact sedan and despite being priced competitively in range of Rs 5.50-10.0 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi), the Ameo doesn’t miss on the characteristic strengths of Volkswagen like vault-like build quality, uncluttered design, and ageless appeal. The cabin of Ameo is well appointed and although it offers average rear space and trunk room, the quality and finish is undoubtedly among the best in the segment. Under the hood, the Ameo derives power from a 1.2-liter petrol motor putting out 75PS/110Nm and a 1.5-liter TDI diesel motor capable of 110PS/250Nm, both the motors channelizes the power to front wheels via 5-speed manual transmission. Unlike the competitors, the Ameo offers the Automatic convenience on the Comfortline and Highline diesel variants. The Ameo has got the likes of Maruti Dzire, Tata Tigor, Honda Amaze, Hyundai Xcent, and Ford Figo Aspire in its crosshairs among others.

Ameo Specifications

The Volkswagen Ameo is fitted with either of two engines: a 1198cc, 3-cylinder, petrol engine and a 1498cc, 4-cylinder turbo-diesel engine. The petrol engine is tuned for efficiency than performance and is paired to a 5-speed manual transmission. The diesel engine is naturally efficient but is also tuned for better performance - while it can also be had with a 5-speed manual transmission, you can also pair it with a quick-shifting 7-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. The dual-clutch transmission fits the powerful nature of the diesel motor, if driven carefully it can also be more efficient than the manual transmission.

Ameo Variants

Volkswagen offers 7 variants of the Ameo. The 1.2 MPI Trendline is priced at Rs 5.60 lakh, while the top-end 1.5 TDI DSG Highline costs Rs 9.99 lakh. For those looking at the best combination of performance and efficiency, thehowroom), the top of the line XTA (4x4) automatic variant sets you back by Rs 17.40 lakh. The 1.5 TDI DSG Highline variant is the best one to go for. If engine performance is not too important, but you want all the unique features that the Ameo is fitted with, the 1.2 MPI Highline variant offers everything at a much lower price point.

Ameo Exterior and Interior

The Ameo is Volkswagen's conceived-and-made-in-India compact-sedan based on the Polo hatchback. It shares most of its design with the hatchback except, of course, at the rear. Overall, the design is understated but grown up, with only the boot standing out like an afterthought. The dual-barrel headlamps, subtle chrome highlights all around, large multi-spoke wheels, stubby boot etc. make the Ameo look smart.

The understated but smart design continues on the inside too. Volkswagen engineers have had to compromise rear cabin space to make the luggage compartment usable; at 330-litres, it can hold just 35-litres more than the Polo hatchback. As a 2+2 seater, the Ameo is a great compact car to have. The tough build quality, high-quality materials and high-tech features make this a great cabin to be in. Highlights include the touchscreen infotainment system with reverse camera display, rain sensing wipers, cruise control, bezel-less IRVM, cooled glovebox, rear A/C vents, hill-hold assist, traction control etc.

Volkswagen Ameo Competitors

Maruti Suzuki Dzire: This is the newest car in its class and has been improved in every way imaginable. It looks proportional, is the most spacious among the competition here and has great features. As always the Dzire is backed by Maruti's reliable, nation-wide service network.

Hyundai Xcent : Based on the Grand i10 hatchback, this compact sedan combines the reliability and low cost of ownership associated with the brand with the space and practicality of a larger car. The Xcent is not as spacious as the competition but has one of the better-built interiors. The Xcent does not get a diesel automatic variant, unlike the Ameo or the Dzire.

Ford Aspire : The oldest car in this comparison, the Aspire remains the value buy in this segment for the space, performance and comfort it offers. The age does show through; the Aspire is the only car in the segment to not get a touchscreen, smartphone compatible infotainment system. It leads the pack in terms of safety though, with features like 6-airbags and emergency assist system.


The Ameo can be a great compact sedan to own if build quality, performance, features and value rank high on your priority list. The Ameo has a big, for some deal breaking, fault - the rear seats are the most cramped in its class.
