After the successful launch of Ameo petrol earlier this year, Volkswagen launched the diesel variant of its India specific product at Rs 6.33 lakhs, ex-showroom, Delhi. Just like its siblings, the Ameo diesel too comes in 3 trims – Trendline, Comfortline and Highline.
|Variant||Prices ex-showroom, Delhi|
|Trendline MT||Rs 6,33,600|
|Comfortline MT||Rs 7,35,150|
|Comfortline DSG||Rs 8,50,150|
|Highline MT||Rs 8,16,900|
|Highline DSG||Rs 9,31,900|
The Ameo is powered by the same 1.5 litre 4 Cyl diesel engine featured in the Polo and Vento, but here it makes 110 ps (108 hp) of power. While the 5 Speed manual transmission is standard, there is a choice of a 7 Speed DSG for Comfortline and Highline trims. The company says its the first in the segment to offer a DSG.
The Volkswagen Ameo comes with dual front airbags and ABS as standard across all variants.
Speaking at the occasion, Mr. Michael Mayer – Director, Volkswagen Passenger Cars India said, “We have witnessed a successful launch of our made-in-India and made-for-India Ameo Petrol during the summer this year. Now with the Ameo Diesel being introduced during the festivities, we have an opportunity to cater to a wider set of customers, thereby further expanding the Volkswagen family. Ameo diesel will be equipped with a 5-speed manual and our very popular 7-speed DSG gearbox transmission making it the most compelling proposition in the segment.”
“Volkswagen’s commitment to safety is not an option and is intrinsic to the brand’s DNA. Ameo Diesel comes equipped with standard ABS and driver and passenger airbags making it one of the safest cars in the market.” He added.
