Volkswagen Ameo is the most affordable offering from the German carmaker in India. The sub-compact sedan was launched with a petrol engine spread across three variants – Trendline, Comfortline and Highline – in June 2016. VW added the new range-topping Highline Plus variant to the carline earlier this year. Aiming to boost its sales, Volkswagen introduced the accessorised Ameo Crest and the Ameo Anniversary Editions in December 2016 and September 2017 respectively.
