I have a 1.6 105. I have tried a 115 JTD a few times. I will compare those two.
Power: actually, 105 TS isnt that slower than JTD 115, you can feel the difference only when you have passengers or AC on. Then 105 TS loses the race.
MPG: TS 105 drinks like a Russian. Not just petrol, it has a nasty habbit of drinking Selenia too. So, JTD is a way better option, although even JTD knows how to drink, when you compare it to TDi or dCi. But still, its very good.
Feel: Well, apart from AC on, or loaded car - TS is more fun to drive. It has a nice power delivery, pulls good at low revs and sounds fantastic. But, JTD pulls like a train, its just that sound - you need to get used to it.
I chose TS because I found a very clean car for a nice price. But, I must say, JTD has a few aces more in its pocket.
