Volkswagen India will be launching the Ameo compact sedan soon. The company has not commenced a campaign to reveal the pricing of their Ameo. The German-based automobile manufacturer is organising a promotion Price Guess contest via their Facebook fan page.
A GIF with #AmeoPrice is displayed and participants need to pause the image, where they think pricing is right. Participants then need to take a screenshot or comment expected price. Five lucky individuals will win goodies from Volkswagen for closest guess.
The #AmeoPrice contest ends on June 5, which would also reveal the pricing of the compact sedan. Surprisingly, the GIF image starts from Rs. 5 lakhs, which means Volkswagen India will price it from there onwards. We expect VW Ameo to be priced well against competitors.
Powering the VW Ameo will be a 1.2-litre MPI petrol and 1.5-litre TDI diesel engine option. Volkswagen will mate both engines to a 5-speed manual transmission. An optional 7-speed DSG transmission could also be introduced at a later stage.
The Ameo compact sedan is the very first product by Volkswagen to be indigenously developed in India. Volkswagen will locally manufacture the Ameo at their facility in Chakan, Pune. Pre-bookings are open across the country through VW dealerships.
