Volkswagen offers the Polo and Ameo’s Black & White edition with the 1.0-litre MPI petrol engine producing 76 PS and 95 Nm of torque and the 1.5-litre TDI diesel engine developing 90 PS and 230 Nm of torque. A 5-speed manual transmission is standard, while the 7-speed DSG option is available in the sedan.
The VW Vento Black & White edition is available with a 1.6-litre MPI petrol engine (105 PS/153 Nm) paired with a 5-speed manual transmission, a 1.2-litre TSI petrol engine (105 PS/175) coupled to the 7-speed DSG transmission and a 1.5-litre TDI diesel engine (110 PS/250 Nm) married to a 5-speed manual transmission or the 7-speed DSG transmission.
