Designed keeping in mind the Indian market, the Ameo features a similar front fascia as seen on the Vento albeit with a few tweaks. Some of the most visible changes can be seen at the posterior which is now smaller in size keeping in mind the sub 4 metre requirement. The tail lamps receive a new design while the number plate recess seems to have been borrowed from another sibling, namely the Rapid.

Once launched, the Ameo will rival the Tata Zest, Hyundai Xcent, Maruti Suzuki Swift Dzire, Ford Figo Aspire, and the Honda Amaze. WE expect the Ameo to arrive with a price tag of approximately Rs. 6.5-7 lakh.
