The Ameo is basically a sub-4m sedan version of the VW Polo, a first for the Volkswagen brand in India. It is based on the PQ25 platform that underpins the VW Polo hatchback. The exterior styling looks largely identical to the Polo, save for the boot and taillamps.

The compact sedan features a dual tone black and beige interior, silver trim on the centre console, multifunction 3-spoke steering wheel, automatic climate control, and a 6.5 inch Mirrorlink touchscreen infotainment system in top-end grades.
