Volkswagen compact sedan spotted testing. 2016 Auto Expo debut

The highly anticipated, Volkswagen India’s Compact Sedan based on the PQ24 platform, has been spotted testing in Pune. To be christened as the Ameo*, the car is expected to be showcased at the 2016 Delhi Auto Expo.

From the spy pics it can be seen that the VW Compact Sedan nearly gets the same face as the Vento and Polo.

The headlamps are the same double-barrel units.  Slight revisions to the bumpers are expected to differentiate it from the Polo and Vento.

The tail lights get a similar shape to the Vento’s units but with different detailing. The C-pillar is all new as the angle of the rear windshield is not steep as that of Vento. The rear door is borrowed from the Polo hatchback.

The Ameo might get the same engines offered on the Polo hatchback which includes the 1.2-liter 3-cylinder petrol and the 1.5-liter 4-cylinder TDI diesel mated to 5-speed manual gearbox.
