156 JTD 1.9 v 2.4 Whats it to be?
Recently joined AO to find out info on 156, and just missed out on purchase of a 2.4 150 bhp sportswagon.
So want to use time looking for best model.
I need car as a work tool 30,000+ miles/ year and personal use, so don`t fancy the usual rep mobiles, also its my own purchase.
So is the 2.4 going to be a better option for big distance against the 1.9`s lower running costs( road tax, mpg) Has anyone owned both versions?
I fancy a late full face lift model, sportswagon, JTD only, like the sound of 2.4 JTD 175 bhp, 17"s,leather.
I believe Veloce is top spec, yet there seems to be the odd lusso with things like Roofrails and Bose systems, where as veloce,s haven`t. Expensive optional extra?
Have driven a 156 2.4 175bhp and drove great, is 1.9 150 bhp similar in actual road performance? ( Wife drives a 150 BHP GTI TDI golf and that goes very well, but does feel like its working hard under pressure!) So your opinions would be helpful and maybe a guide on a Fair price.
Hope this is posted in correct section
