Re: 159, 1.9JTDM or 2.2JTS??
I have driven both 1,9 JTD and 2,2 JTS, but both only for a test drive, about 5-10 km each. I found 2,2 JTS much sweeter engine, free revving, power was not amazing but more than adequate for a saloon. With diesel I didnít like the power delivery and narrow rev range comparing to petrol. But this is just my personal preference. I havenít checked the economy so I cant comment on this but I am sure that diesel makes much more sense as a everyday car. However, if I had to buy a 159 and could afford the petrol, I would go for it.
