Q. What is the best engine and gearbox?

A. This can depend on what conversion route you are heading down and to type of driving you a more likely to be doing but we recommend.

Pre 2010 – 1.9L – 102ps – 5 speed: These are a good all rounder, cheaper to service and the most economical.

Pre 2010 – 2.5L – 130ps – 6 speed: More power and better for motorway cruising.

Other pre 2010 are the 84ps (under powered) and 174ps.

Post 2010 – 2.0L – 102ps – 5 speed: Like it’s predecessor this is a good all rounder and economical but the newer common rail engine is more refined and smoother.

Post 2010 – 2.0L – 140ps – 6 speed: More power and better for motorway cruising but the newer common rail engine is more refined and smoother.

Other post 2010 are the 84ps (under powered) and 180ps Bi-turbo.
