Which engine should I pick for a new Grand Scenic?
Hi this is my first post, sorry if this is in the wrong place.
I am looking to get a new Grand Scenic and I am not sure if I should pick the 1.6dci(130) or the 1.2TCE (also 130bhp) .
I currently have a 2007 Scenic II 1.6VVT and I find it
- a bit underpowered
- way too noisy at motorway speed.
Consumption doesn't bother me much, the mileage is not going to be high enough to make a big difference.
I am not going to pull anything or travel fully loaded often
It has to be quiet when doing long trips.
I am worried that too many short journeys would not suit the diesel this and it would take ages to warm up in winter.
Our usage varies a lot: 6x journeys less than 4 miles, 2x 30miles round trips on A roads; possibly one 90miles motorway round trip.
I don't care about service costs or resale value as I am going for a 3 years lease, in fact diesel is cheaper to lease (I save around £20/month) which is appealing.
Which should I pick?
Currently in LaurensDeGraff's garage:
2007 Renault Scenic 1.6VVT
