Pros: When I thought of upgrading from my Ritz VDI I was pretty much determined for an automatic one. Being well used to Maruthi my first choice was Dzire ZDI AMT. Had my Ritz evaluated for sale and took a test drive of Dzire AMT on same day. I had never experienced an automatic car before and thought the shifts which felt inside the cabin was normal. Later I had a deep search on net regarding automatics and made my mind to test drive DSG automatic Ameo. It was a real change and the power from 109bhp engine which I felt during overtake was mind blowing and we cant even notice the gear shifts. In Kerala we have roads with many ups n downs and the hill hold control feature, which I think is a must for automatic cars, is a real boon. The boot is only 330l but we can fold back rear seat for a bigger luggage space which is also unique. Just open n hold the hood n you will feel the quality of metals used in this car. Also Ameo comes feature laden which even the Vento lacks Overall this is one of the best choice in compact sedan segment and indeed the best choice for an automatic car in that segment. The best thing is its pickup. Even with an extra 150 plus kgs than Dzire Ameo will reach 100kms from 0 in just 9.9 sec which even higher sedans like City, Vento, Ciaz etc cant beat. Another best thing which is common to all VW cars is full steering adjustment viz Reach and Rake and also remote operated all window Up and Down.
Cons: On the down side we have some what cramped rear seat which matters if you are above 6 ft and also I felt the suspension to be on stiffer side which on other hand helps for enhanced handling on curves. We should expect increased service charges but service once in 15000 kms is good. Strictly stick on to manual given service schedules and dont go for any extra changes on dealers recommendation. Any way will get a bill around 10000 diesel for every 15000 Kms. Its high but even my Ritz VDIs 30000 Km service costed me 8500.
