Volkswagen Compact Sedan Finally Named Ameo

Volkswagen has officially named its compact sedan as VW Ameo for the Indian market. The car is said to be based on Polo hatchback whereas the looks define it as a chopped version of the Vento sedan. It would have a tough competition from market leaders like Maruti Suzuki Dzire and Hyundai Xcent.

The word Ameo is derived from Latin word Amo, meaning ‘I Love’. It is expected to borrow the engines from the Polo family, providing 1.2 L 3-cylinder petrol and 1.5 L 4-cylinder diesel options. VW may also launch the 1.2 L 4-cylinder TSI with 7-speed DSG for the Ameo. It would be displayed at the upcoming 2016 Auto Expo.
