Volkswagen Ameo pricing begins at Rs
5.24 lakh, priced lower than the Polo!
German car maker announces pricing for it’s made in India, for India compact sedan
Volkswagen India today announced the prices of its most important product for the
Indian market, its sub 4-metre compact sedan Ameo. The car has been priced between
Rs 5.24 lakh and Rs 7.05 lakh ex-showroom New Delhi for the petrol version, for the
Trendline and Highline versions respectively. The Comfortline version slots in between,
and is priced at 5.99 lakh ex-showroom New Delhi. The pricing of the Ameo, for the
record, undercuts Volkswagen’s own Polo hatchback, which should come as a shocker
to many. However, we believe that either the prices of the Polo will be dropped shortly
to price it lower than the Ameo, or the prices of the Ameo will be revised in sometime.
Pricing for the Ameo is a bit lower for Mumbai, ranging between Rs 5.13 lakh and Rs
6.91 lakh though that does not include octroi and local taxes and thus final pricing for
the city could vary slightly.
The petrol version will be powered by Volkswagen’s rather well-known 1.2-litre, three
cylinder motor that is good for 75PS of power and 110Nm of torque. Prices for the
diesel version are expected to be announced soon. Interestingly, Volkswagen has
priced the petrol version of the Ameo very strategically, as its prices are lower than
some of the popular cars in this uber-important segment, like the Honda Amaze and
Hyundai Xcent. Its pricing is in fact nearly the same as the best-seller in its segment, the
Maruti Suzuki Swift Dzire, which is a clear indication of Volkswagen’s intent of eating
into the Dzire’s sales and gaining crucial market share.
What’s more interesting is the fact that the Ameo is the most feature-rich car in its class. With
several segment firsts, Volkswagen seem to have tried to tick the highest number of boxes for
compact sedan buyers. To begin with, the car gets ABS and two front airbags as standard
across all variants, which should force other players in the segment to follow suit. Other
segment-first features include rain sensing wipers, cornering lights, cruise control, a front centre
armrest and anti-pinch front and rear power windows.
The feature list also includes a rear air-con vent, climate control, cooled glovebox, auto-dimming
inside rear view mirror, rake and reach adjust for the steering wheel, rear view camera with rear
parking sensors and a touchscreen infotainment system. Boot volume for this sub 4-metre
sedan stands at 330 litres, while claimed efficiency for the petrol version stands at 17.83kmpl.
With its kind of pricing and equipment on offer, the Ameo clearly seems to have an edge over
the competition, on paper at least. Stay tuned for a detailed drive review of the car.
