Volkswagen recently has launched Ameo Petrol earlier this year now will introduce its diesel version of this car during festive season, possibly in the month of October. The Ameo petrol features a 1.2 litre, 3 cylinder, MPI engine that yields 74 bhp @ 5400 rpm and 110 Nm at 3750 rpm while the updated 1.5 liter diesel engine of upcoming Ameo is expected to produce 108 bhp power and a peak torque of 230 Nm the same engine produce 89 bhp in Polo and 103 bhp in Vento, so Ameo diesel would be the most powerful car among these three.
Ameo diesel would be mated with Volkswagen tried and tested DSG unit as an option along with 5 speed manual gearbox and it will also be the only diesel powered sub 4 meter sedan to get an automatic gearbox although there are some cars with AMT unit but not with actual auto gearbox, the expected mileage of this car is around 20-21 kmpl.
