Aravind Jayachandran, I'm a huge petrolhead, an automobile engineer, a massive fan of Ferrari, and loves collecting die-cast models for inspiration.

Current model offers 15-inch Tosa alloy wheels.

A VW Ameo with 16-inch ‘Portago’ alloy wheels was spied testing by Scoopmeister in Pune. The wheels are wrapped with 195/55/R16 section Apollo Alnac tyres.

The current model is fitted with smaller 15-inch ‘Tosa’ alloy wheels in the top-end Highline grade, while the lower grades get alloy wheel covers. The 16-inch alloy wheels could be exclusive to the Highline grade and will be shared with its siblings: Polo and Vento. It is unclear if Volkswagen has made suspension changes to offset the negative impact of the 16-inchers’ ride quality. The Portago design is sourced from the international-spec VW Polo.

No other significant changes are expected. The VW Polo and VW Ameo are available with the 1.2L MPi and 1.5L TDI (updated version in Ameo) engines paired with a 5-speed manual gearbox and 7-speed DSG (Ameo diesel only). The VW Vento comes with a 1.6L MPi, 1.2 TSI and 1.5 TDI (updated), available with a 5-speed manual, 6-speed automatic (petrol) and 7-speed DSG (diesel).
