VW Ameo Gets a Spunky Diesel GT Line Variant


The GT Line comes with a bunch of cosmetic updates that make the Ameo look more sporty

 

  • The Ameo GT Line is based on the Highline Plus diesel-DSG variant.
  • GT Line packs sporty elements like a blacked-out roof, ORVMs and a spoiler.
  • Gets a 6.5-inch infotainment system, cruise control, auto dimming IRVM, and more.
  • The Ameo GT Line is offered in a total of five colours.

The Volkswagen Ameo is now available in a new trim called the GT Line. This sporty variant of Volkswagen’s sub-4 metre sedan is priced at Rs 10 lakh (ex-showroom), which makes it as expensive as the variant it is based on, the Ameo Highline Plus diesel-AT. The GT Line trim can also be had on the top-spec Polo GT and Vento Highline Plus DSG variants as well.

The GT Line trim in the Ameo packs styling elements that make it look a tad sportier. For starters, you get a blacked-out roof and ORVMs. Then there are body decals and badges at the side to ensure that you’re driving the sportier variant. At the rear, a black colour lip spoiler adds some oomph to the otherwise boxy design. Nope, the Ameo doesn’t get that GTI-esque face, side skirts or LED tail lamps found on the recently introduced Polo and Vento facelift.

The Ameo GT Line can be had in five colours including the recently introduced Sunset Red, Lapiz Blue, Reflex Silver, Candy White and Carbon Steel. Features on board include a 6.5-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, automatic climate control, cruise control, rain-sensing wipers, an auto dimming IRVM, and more. Safety features include dual airbags, ABS with EBD, rear parking sensors with camera, electronic stability control and hill hold control.

The Ameo GT Line can only be had with the diesel-automatic powertrain. The 1.5-litre TDI motor develops 110PS of power and 250Nm of torque. It comes paired with the quick shifting 7-speed DSG while there’s a 5-speed manual available with the standard variants. There’s also a 1.0-litre MPI petrol engine that develops 76PS of power and 96Nm of torque. This engine is not offered with the GT Line trim.

The Volkswagen Ameo goes up against the Maruti Suzuki Dzire, Honda Amaze, Ford Aspire and the Tata Tigor. Considering the fact that the Ameo GT Line is priced equivalent to the Highline Plus, you get the option of making your car look sportier at no extra cost. That said, this is yet another update for an ageing product.
