for 1.2 MPI Trendline

Shripal Reddy

I was looking for a basic compact sedan. Compared Volkswagen Ameo 1.2 MPI Trendline (Base Model) with Base Models of Hyundai Xcent, Swift Dzire, Ford Aspire & Tata Zest. Omitted Base Model of Hyundai Xcent because in comparison to Volkswagen Ameo 1.2 MPI Trendline (Base Model):  1. No Passenger side airbag and only one driver side airbag was available and that too optional (at an additional cost) and it would have been a Dealer fitment and not a Factory fitment  2. ABS too was optional (at an additional cost) and it would have been a Dealer fitment and not a Factory fitment  3. OVRM's & Door Handles were not body colored  4. Wheel caps had to be purchased at an additional cost  5. No central locking  6. 13'' Tyres  7. No premium feel as most of Hyundai Xcent's.  I saw were in TAXI segment Omitted Base Model of Swift Dzire because in comparison to Volkswagen Ameo 1.2 MPI Trendline (Base Model):  1. Driver and front passenger side airbags were available only as an optional package (at an additional cost) and it would have been a Dealer fitment and not a Factory fitment  2. ABS too was optional (at an additional cost) and it would have been a Dealer fitment and not a Factory fitment  3. OVRM's & Door Handles were not body colored  4. Wheel caps had to be purchased at an additional cost  5. No central locking 6. Plastic interior build Quality was not good  7. 13'' Tyres  8. No premium feel as most of Swift Dzire's  I saw were in TAXI segment Omitted Base Model of Ford Aspire because in comparison to Volkswagen Ameo 1.2 MPI Trendline (Base Model):  1. ABS was not even an optional package  2. OVRM's & Door Handles were not body colored  3. Wheel caps had to be purchased at an additional cost  Omitted Base Model of Tata Zest because in comparison to Volkswagen Ameo 1.2 MPI Trendline (Base Model):  1. Driver and front passenger side airbags were not available (not even an optional package)  2. ABS not available (not even an optional package)  3. OVRM's & Door Handles were not body colored  4. Wheel caps had to be purchased at an additional cost  5. No central locking  6. 13'' Tyres  The TAXI image associated with entry level TATA cars Purchased Volkswagen Ameo 1.2 MPI Trendline (Base Model) because:  1. Driver and front passenger side airbags were available as a Factory fitment without any additional cost  2. ABS too was available as a Factory fitment without any additional cost  3. OVRM's & Door Handles were body colored  4. OVRM's had TURN INDICATORS  5. Wheel caps were available without any additional cost 6. Central locking was available  7. Plastic interior build Quality was very good  8. Premium feel as most of Volkswagen cars are very rarely seen in TAXI segment  9. Paint Quality  10. 14'' Tyres  11. Overall Build Quality with undercover protection Comfortably and intentionally overlooked the less powerful image associated with the Petrol Model because i rarely exceed 80Kmph speed on the so well known less safe typical Indian roads. Speed Kills. Neither i expect a compact sedan to have RX100 like pick ups. Though Volkswagen Ameo Petrol showed me it is capable of doing it. At least on typical Indian Roads Boot space for all cars was above 300 liters did not expect much.

    • Nice car

      It's a very good family car. All controls including a stereo system control are on the steering. It has 1.5 CC engine with better mileage.
