Two 4-cylinder diesel engines with Common-Rail direct injection and turbo-charging are the basis for the economical, sustainable operation of the Vito. The 1598 cc engine is available in two power output levels, the 2143 cc in three output levels. Depending on the engine variant, there is a choice among front-wheel, rear-wheel, and all-wheel drive systems . The 120-kW variant equipped with the optional BlueEFFICIENCY package can achieve a fuel consumption level as low as 5.7 litres per 100 km .
The variant powered by the 140-kW engine, the most powerful one, consumes around 2.5 litres per 100 km less than a comparable variant of the previous model series, at the same torque level. Thanks to BlueTEC technology, it also complies with the strict Euro-6 emissions standard even before it comes into force. With the help of selective catalytic reduction (SCR), harmful nitrogen oxides in the exhaust gases are converted into water and nitrogen.
