Volkswagen Ameo compact sedan to launch this month
Volkswagen Ameo, the German automaker’s highly awaited compact sedan for the Indian market, will be launched in India in May 2016. This information comes after it was earlier reported that the Ameo launch in India will happen around the festive season in order to rope in the huge customer crowd that floods the automobile market around Diwali. The VW Ameo, which is based on the Polo’s platform, made its world debut at the Auto Expo 2016, and managed to garner huge interest from the visitors. Hence, the company is expecting that this new car will help them come out from the traumatic stint they had last year due to the infamous diesel-gate emissions scandal.
Volkswagen Ameo bookings in India have already commenced as many VW dealers across the country are accepting advanced bookings for the upcoming compact sedan, where customers can reserve their car by paying a fully-refundable sum of Rs 10,000. The Ameo`s deliveries will start in July 2016, as reported by the dealers accepting bookings. In addition to the conventional way of booking cars through dealers, the company has also provided customers a flexibility to book their new Ameo through an app that is available on the Play Store for Android users.
The VW Ameo engines will consist of the same options that power the Polo hatchback, i.e., a 1.2-litre petrol rated at 75 PS and 110 Nm, and a 1.5-litre diesel that churns out 90 PS and 230 Nm.
