Volkswagen Ameo User Reviews
Just 8 months after I got the Ameo TDI automatic, the car started losing power to the point it became unusable. It took the VW service centre guys 2 full weeks to figure out what the problem actually was. After two weeks they claim that the auto
gearbox has failed and need to be replaced. Another week down the line to fixing the car. Atleast the company is bearing the cost.
Volkswagen Ameo Highlights
The sub-4-metre sedan class has proved to be quite popular among buyers in India, with models being offered from various manufacturers. Missing out on all the action, however, was Volkswagen. The brand decided to jump on to the bandwagon by introducing the Ameo. With the current crop of competitive compact sedans on the market, will the Polo-based Ameo stand a chance to rule the roost, without having to sacrifice Volkswagen's solid build, its premium feel and safety features?
The Ameo looks very similar to the Polo, but look closer, and you'll that the mildly revised front bumper is smaller than the hatchbacks. The slim grille and clean lines on the face are typically Volkswagen. Along the sides, there's a sharp shoulder line that adds some muscle to the overall silhouette. At the rear, the boot is a tad too boxy, but the creases and lines somewhat mask it rather well. Volkswagen could've got it perfect if it wasn't for that chopped roofline and the unusual C-pillar. The tail lamps, though, are simplistic and light up well in the dark.
The Volkswagen Ameo variants are as follows: Trendline, Comfortline, Highline and Highline Plus. Features include cruise control, front armrest, touchscreen entertainment system, climate control, rear air conditioner vents, rear parking camera and sensors, a chilled glove box, rain sensing wipers and single rear folding seat. On the safety front, it gets twin airbags and anti-locking brake system (ABS) as standard across all the variants.
The Ameo gets the typical fit and finish of any Volkswagen. The solid build quality is perhaps the best in its class. The instrument cluster and flat-bottom steering have been borrowed from the Polo. At the front, the seats provide ample support and the hollow backs mean that the rear passengers have good knee room as well. However, legroom is slightly limited. The rear bench has good cushioning, with sufficient support as well.
Engine Specification & Performance
The Volkswagen Ameo is powered by a 1.0-litre, three-cylinder engine that makes 75bhp and 95Nm of torque, while the 1.5-litre diesel engine produces 109bhp and 250Nm of torque. Both engines are paired to a 5-speed manual gearbox, while there is also an option of a 7-speed DSG automatic transmission. On starting the petrol motor, it sounds refined. The engine is smooth, with NVH levels being well contained. Acceleration is linear, and for urban conditions, this motor is quite peppy. On highways, however, the three-cylinder thrum is evident and the motor feels a bit strained. The clutch, on the other hand, is light; so are the gearshifts. There is a little bit of body roll, but it isn't all that bad. Ride quality, as expected, is supple, with all bumps being dealt with easily.
The Volkswagen Ameo's ARAI-certified fuel efficiency figure is rated at 21.66kmpl for the diesel model and 19.44kmpl for the petrol model.
