VW Ameo TDI spied testing ahead of festive season launch
Aravind Jayachandran, I'm a huge petrolhead, an automobile engineer, a massive fan of Ferrari, and loves collecting die-cast models for inspiration.
Will pack an updated version of the 1.5 TDI engine.
Carwale has acquired a spyshot of the VW Ameo diesel variant testing, as evidenced by the ‘TDI’ badge on its boot. It is expected to arrive later this year, and could be priced from INR 6.8 Lakhs (ex-showroom).
Last month, VW launched the Ameo in its petrol guise at prices ranging between INR 5.13-6.91 lakhs (ex-showroom Mumbai).
When the diesel variant is launched, it will pack an updated version of the 1.5 TDI diesel engine, which is reported to produce 108 bhp. Apart from a standard 5-speed manual transmission, a 7-speed DSG is also available as an option in the diesel variant.
It will share the equipment list with its petrol-powered sibling. As standard from base Trendline, the Ameo gets body-coloured bumpers, body-coloured door handles, body-coloured door mirrors with integrated turn indicators, single-folding rear seat backrest, tilt and telescopic adjustable steering wheel, ABS and dual-front airbags.
