Re: Clio 3 - dci 86 vs 106?

I have always thought that the 106 is needlessly powerful for a Clio if economy is a priority. The 86 (or 88 - though I have not yet heard of this variant) will be plenty.
The 86 will deliver spectacular economy, and unlike most cars, the Clio dCi does what it says on the can - you will get the official economy figures without much trouble. I have the earlier 80, and last week, on my normal commute, it delivered a superb 72.73 mpg (average 66). Also, the 86 will cost peanuts to tax.
