Petrol or diesel

Hi I have my heart set on a Giulietta, i have never owned an ***** before but this one turns my head so i must have one. I will have to get a 2-4 year old one so it will be 2011 and upwards. I am going for the 170BHP model as i want that little extra oomph. The only thing i am undecided on is whether to go for the 2L Diesel model or the 1.4 Multiair Petrol. I do around 8k to 10k mileage a year. I will be going for the Veloce or higher models.

Welcome to the forum. I have a 2.0 170bhp Diesel is a great car. The mid range grunt is excellent and I average just under 50mpg.

Both the 1.4 petrol do have a few common issues which you will find more details of in the Giulietta lounge but you can't go too far wrong with either as long as you get a good one.
