Its been a long time we didn’t hear anything from our scoopmeister and yes, he is back! This time again VW and the highly anticipated 2016 VW AMEO production variant spy pics. These are the first ever spy images of a fully exposed production variant after its unveil before the 2016 Auto Expo.
The AMEO looks a very much like a POLO from the front and a mix of Vento and Rapid from the Rear end. Based on a PQ25 platform, the VW Ameo is not a cut version of a Vento but its a stretched Polo. Interiors of Ameo are same as of Polo hatchback and even the wheelbase of Ameo remains same as of Polo. It is so obvious that even the rear seat comfort of the car will remain same as of Polo.
Powered by 1.5 liter diesel mill the Ameo will produce 105PS/250Nm from diesel mill. The petrol motor in entry level variant will have the 1.2 liter TSI engine with 75PS/110Nm of specs. Interestingly a 7 speed DSG gearbox might be available in top end variant.
We also spotted the LED Headlamp of 2016 VW Vento and here is the detail pic and video of the same.
VW Ameo will be priced around Rs. 6-8 Lakh range and will compete with Maruti Swift Dzire, Figo Aspire, Honda Amaze and Tata Zest and Tata Kite 5.
