Advice needed please!

I currently have a SW 1.9 JTD Veloce 2004. 90k miles, good runner.
Previously I've had SW 2.0 TS, and SW 2.4 JTD

I'm thinking to upgrade soon. And thinking of getting similar SW 159.

What do you recommend in terms of engine / reliability / any known issues with specific
159 models / economy.

Thanks all

2.0jtdm if available. 1.9 economy with more power (170 vs 150 bhp), and the stronger gear box, also has an improved EGR and DPF,

Agree with Giblets46, but i fear you may find the 2.0 sluggish after coming from a 156 1.9 as they do feel a bit punchy whereas the 159 does carry more weight. If you don't mind the economy of the 2.4, that would be my pick as it can be remapped to produce the same Bhp as the V6 but with miles better economy. And being a 5 pot, sounds good for a diesel
