I had been driving Japanese/Korean cars for 20 years. I traded my Hyundai i20 Magna Petrol for an Ameo Comfortline Petrol. I fell for the looks, the offers and the Volkswagen brand but about a month driving the car, the experience has been disappointing.I doubt if the car is the right fit for Indian roads and drivers. First the engine is pretty noisy and in the first and second gears you get the feel of driving a diesel truck. If you are used to the silky smoothness of Japanese/Koran cars, this is a great disappointment. The engine is rather lazy and lacks torque power and the starts are often jumpy. The Ameo is the heaviest car in its category, but the rides are surprisingly very bumpy. I have driven the same roads in my Hundai but never realized the roads were bumpy. The suspenseion is rather poor and often the car is very very wobbly when driving on Indian roads. Again the transmission is also nothing much to rave about and is often hard. The reversing gear mechanism is a big pain. The interiors are just nothing great. The dashboard controls have old fashioned rotary knobs and they are all rather brittle and made of cheap light plastic.

Honestly I could not find one single aspect that would merit recommending VW Ameo. Maybe I am biased, but driving is beleiving. I regret having decided, after months of evaluation, against Honda's Amaze and Maruti Baleno.
