Volkswagen Passenger Cars held their Ameo Handling Drive at the Buddh International Circuit in Greater Noida on 4th October 2018 - a build-up promotional event leading to the annual race championship - Volkswagen Ameo Cup 2018 organised by Volkswagen Motorsport India.
And on behalf of Autoportal.com, I had the privilege of attending this event. The invitation already had me on my toes and waited eagerly for this day! Such was the adrenaline rush and curiosity to experience an event like this which stands testimony to the sheer engineering brilliance of the cars from the German auto giant’s stable.
The spotlight of it all was, of course, the Ameo - and bang on this car lives up to its name and the company’s promises, in terms of performance and safety aspects. With the performance and track impressions, I'm assured of the build quality, chassis and overall safety of passengers included even in the regular production variants.
Overall, in my experience, the perfect example of versatility, in terms of combining power, style and spirited performance to exhibit impeccable handling is undoubtedly the mighty Volkswagen Ameo.
Later, I also had the great opportunity to meet Mr Steffen Knapp, Director, Volkswagen Passenger Cars for a one-on-one interaction. He’s leading the operations in India since more than a year and is fascinated by the country’s diversity and sees a great potential in the passenger cars market here.
