I have been using a Renault Duster RxL 4WD 2014 model since I bought it new in January 2015. I have clocked 60ooo Kms since and yesterday was shocked when I had a service charges bill for Rs 20,000. I had paid about Rs 18,000 when the car was serviced at 50,000 kms and in all I have paid more than Rs. 70,000 on service since purchasing this car. I am totally lost as to why Renault is charging such high prices for everything, when similar cars get serviced at less than a fourth of what I paid

We appreciate your interest towards car and your keenness to know the performance of VW Ameo.
Firstly talking about petrol variant, the petrol 1.2-litre is a tried and tested engine, 73bhp is what it produces and there's 110Nm of torque on offer and you might say the power is pretty sufficient for the segment.
About diesel, 1.5-litre, 4 cylinder diesel engine, which has been used in the Polo and the Vento, and it now makes its way into the Ameo. But what VW has managed to extract is more power out of this unit, which means that the Ameo is more powerful than the Polo. What Volkswagen has also managed to give the Ameo is a 5-speed manual and a 7-speed DSG. The 5-speed manual is a familiar unit and the gearshifts are smooth, which makes it a good companion, in both city traffic conditions and out on the highway.
