Volkswagen Ameo Sport spied testing

  •  

Volkswagen is working on a special edition of the Ameo compact sedan. The car is likely to be called the Ameo Sport. Spy images that have recently surfaced online suggest that the Ameo Sport could receive similar cosmetic updates as the Polo GT Sport.

According to the spy images, the Ameo Sport will get black decals on the sides, a blacked-out roof, a black lip spoiler and a black trim on the boot lid. The test mule can be seen sporting black alloy wheels and also appears to have a black ORVM housing, instead of the usual body-coloured unit. 

Under the bonnet, the Ameo Sport is expected to use the same 1.2-litre, 74 BHP / 110 Nm petrol engine and the 1.5-litre diesel unit with 108 BHP and 250 Nm of torque. The car is likely to be offered with a 5-speed manual transmission, while a 7-speed DSG would be offered as an option on the diesel variant. The lack of TDI badges on this particular test mule suggests that it might be a petrol version. That said, Volkswagen is yet to confirm the special edition Ameo Sport.
