The Ameo diesel has been spied as test mule couple of times on the Indian roads. Visually, it is identical to the petrol counterparts, save for the TDI badges at the rear end. The interior and features would also be similar to the petrol siblings. Mechanically, the diesel variants of the sedan would carry an updated 1.5L 4-cylinder TDI engine. It would be offered with the 5-speed manual gearbox as standard, while a 7-speed DSG automatic transmission would be available as optional.
