Aravind Jayachandran, It goes without saying that I'm a huge petrolhead and can apparently convert all my driving emotions into words you can read.

Will pack an updated version of the 1.5 TDI engine.

Autocar India reports that the VW Ameo diesel variant will launch for sale tomorrow (September 27). So far, the Ameo has only been available in its petrol variant, which is priced between INR 5.31 Lakhs – 7.13 Lakhs (ex-showroom Delhi).

So far, the Ameo has only been available in its petrol variant, which is priced between INR 5.31 Lakhs – 7.13 Lakhs (ex-showroom Delhi).

The Ameo diesel packs an updated version of the 1.5 TDI unit, which bumps the power output to 108 bhp from 103 bhp thanks to a larger, locally sourced turbocharger. A 5-speed manual gearbox is fitted as standard, while a 7-speed DSG is optional in the Ameo diesel. Expect VW and Skoda to introduce the updated engine in its products in the future.

Like the petrol variant, the Ameo diesel will be sold in three trim levels – Trendline, Comfortline and Highline. Some of the standard features in the Ameo include tilt and telescopic adjustable steering wheel, ABS and dual-front airbags as standard across the range.
