Volkswagen’s Ameo will follow in the paths of the Vento and the Polo by getting the new top of the line Highline Plus trim. The Ameo Highline Plus trim will be available with the 75hp, 1.2-litre petrol and with the 110hp, 1.5-litre diesel engine. In terms of goodies, the Ameo Highline Plus gets new 16-inch alloy wheels (up by an inch from the Highline trim) and a tweaked infotainment system that comes standard with a reverse camera.
Like the Polo Highline Plus, the Ameo compact sedan will probably miss out on the Vento’s LED headlamps. There will be levels of the Highline Plus trim; one with a reversing camera, and one that gets the reversing camera and the 16-inch alloy wheels. The price for the petrol variant is likely to start at Rs.7.35 lakh and go up to Rs.7.45 lakh (with 16-inch alloys), while the diesel Highline Plus variant will start around Rs.8.59 lakh and go up to Rs.8.69 lakh (ex-showroom, Mumbai). Volkswagen’s Ameo competes against compact sedans such as the Maruti Suzuki Dzire, Honda’s Amaze and Ford Aspire.
