I dunno. Look at some of the other figures in the spreadsheet. The 120 'horsepower' 1.9 dCi is 119.6 PS and only 118bhp. the 140 'horsepower' IDE is 139.9 PS and only 138bhp.

Maybe they're just rounding up, but they're happy to quote more precise figures elsewhere in the range. I reckon they've pulled the classic 'fast one' alright and quoted PS figures as BHP. Naughty!

That explains the power output, but why would they quote less torque than the engine actually gives out?

Curiouser and curioser

I spose it doesn't really make a huge amount of difference in real life though, as peak figures meen doodle-squat anyway...
