Debut at Auto Expo 2016.

VW India has dropped an interesting video that asks the public to guess the name of VW’s first sub-4m sedan (codenamed VW ICS). It says that the “First Volkswagen made for India is here.” The Maruti Swift Dzire rival is confirmed to make its public debut at the Auto Expo 2016 on February 3, while its name will be revealed tomorrow.

Spyshots of the VW sub-4m sedan reveal a familiar VW face with a long grille directly flanked by large headlamps that appear to be sourced from the VW Polo. The rear-end gets L-shaped taillight clusters similar to that of the VW Polo.

The interior appears to be taken straight out from the VW Polo, save for the inclusion of a 7 inch touchscreen system. It gets a dual tone black and beige color combination, silver trim on the center console, multifunction 3-spoke steering wheel with manual adjust, and an MID.

The sedan’s engine lineup is likely to be borrowed from the VW Polo, which will include the 1.2-liter three-cylinder MPI petrol and the 1.5-liter four-cylinder TDI diesel, paired to 5-speed manual transmissions. Additionally, VW could also offer its 7-speed DSG on the diesel, or with the more powerful 1.2-liter TSI petrol.

While one report said that the car would be called the VW Ameo, others say it could be called the VW Bora.
