Did your old dTi ever tow a caravan?.If so,then the 105bhp will cope fine.

The newer 120bhp engines are a little fragile,especially the turbos,and I think I'm right in saying that the 130bhp is fitted with a FAP filter in the exhaust and the extra 10bhp is given to it to make up for this,so in real terms it's no more powerfull.

I suspect you will feel the difference in the 105 and 120,but I really wouldn't have though that it would be worth the extra cost of buying a later shape Scenic.

I'd rather push my Alfa than drive a BMW....
