Will be based on VW Polo hatchback.
Team-BHP reader Gaurav Samant snapped the upcoming India-exclusive VW compact sedan (codenamed VW ICS) testing in the wild. It is confirmed to debut at the Auto Expo 2016, and is VW's first sub-4m sedan in the market.
Rumored to be called the VW Ameo, it will feature a familiar VW face with a long grille directly flanked by large headlamps that appear to be sourced from the VW Polo. A spyshot of the Ameo’s side profile offers the best look at its sub-4m proportions, while 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 VW Ameo'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.
