I am one of very few people who have actually driven all of them.
To be honest, at launch, I was unimpressed by all the engines in early 2006, so I just got the 150 Jtd, which sounded awful.
However, when the 2.4 210 bhp came along, I had one ordered straight away, with Ti trim, it is, in my opinion, head and shoulders above the rest, it only sounds like tractor when cold, and unlike the V6, doesn't need a kazoo in the inlet to generate a pleasing induction note.
It's not perfect by any means, it simply has to be given a good run every couple of days to avoid DPF problems and you may end up needing a cylinder head rebuild on early 210's before they redesigned the valve seats.
TBi is a nice car, but disappointing in character and not a huge amount of performance considering the fuel burn rate.
Some people hate them, fair enough.
