Volkswagen Ameo Diesel price in India starts at Rs 6.33 lakh
The Volkswagen Ameo Diesel has been launched at Rs 6.33 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi). This launch comes around 4 months after the Ameo Compact sedan was originally introduced in the country. But at the time of launch, Volkswagen only introduced the petrol Ameo, owing to the fact that the company was in the process of tweaking its 1.5-litre TDI engine in order to be more environment friendly. These steps were being taken on the hindsight of the infamous dieselgate scandal that had tarnished the brand’s image throughout the world.
So the VW Ameo Diesel is powered by an updated version of the company’s popular 1.5-litre TDI diesel engine. It now gets a bigger turbocharger that has boosted the power to 110 PS, thus making the Ameo the most powerful compact sedan currently on offer. Moreover, the German car maker is also offering a 7-speed DSG automatic as an option, while a 5-speed manual is standard across all trim levels. Interestingly, this is the only hard-core diesel automatic in the compact sedan segment, as the only two similar setups are found in the Tata Zest and the Maruti DZire, though both of them employ a basic AMT gearbox.
The Ameo features and their distribution amongst the three variants (Trendline, Comfortline, and Highline), is similar in the petrol and diesel models. However, the company has announced a couple of additions to the feature list of the DSG diesel. These include safety features like Electronic Stability Program (ESP) and Hill start assist. Other safety features are all similar to the petrol models. As a result, the Ameo gets airbags and ABS as standard throughout the range.
Variant-wise Ameo diesel prices released by Volkswagen are as follows:
