The VW Ameo India-specific compact sedan was first launched in June this year. At that time, it was only offered with a petrol engine. Today, VW India announced the launch of Ameo Diesel variant. Available in a choice of five trims, price of Ameo TDI ranges from INR 6.27 lakh to INR 9.21 lakh (ex-Mumbai), while ex-Delhi ranges from INR 6.33 lakh to INR 9.32 lakh.
Based on the Polo / Vento platform, Ameo is the most affordable car on offer in the VW India line-up currently. It was built at an investment of INR 750 crore and is being produced at VW’s plant in Pune. Below is the Ameo petrol and diesel variants.
