Re: 159 1.9JTD vs 2.4JTD Performance
I had a 1.9 for 18 months and have had a 2.4 (210) for 18 months.
The 2.4 only does 30-34mpg, the 1.9 did 38-42
The 2.4 is faster, but has more turbo lag and a slower throttle response than the 1.9, performance wise I didnt feel that there was much advantage on the 200 over the 150, hence I dodnt buy till the 210 came along.
Noise wise, the advantage swings to the 2.4, the 1.9 is a rattly embaressment in comparison, if you want to search this forum for my Brooklands video on you tube, you will hear the 2.4, which sounds great under load.
