Here are some more spy shots of the upcoming compact sedan from Volkswagen. The car is rumoured to be called the 'Ameo' and is expected to make its debut at the 2016 Auto Expo.

The Ameo will be Volkswagen's offering in the sub 4-metre sedan segment. It will take on the Maruti Suzuki Dzire, Honda Amaze, Hyundai Xcent, Ford Figo Aspire and Tata Zest.

The compact sedan is based on the same platform as the Polo hatchback and Vento sedan and is likely to share various parts and body panels with its siblings. However, it is likely to get some cosmetic changes and will feature a stubby boot, which will keep its length under four metres. This will enable it to qualify for excise duty benefits.

The interiors of the Ameo are likely to be carried over from the Polo and Vento.

Engine and transmission options are likely to be carried over from the Polo as well and will include a 1.2-litre petrol unit and a 1.5-litre diesel powerplant.
