[quote name='London S-MAX' post='12394' date='Feb 17 2009, 02:02 PM']Just checking prices and I can get the 2.2 cheaper than the 2.0 on drivethedeal with all same options.
Anyone know why this might be? Is there any reason someone would prefer the 2.0 to the 2.2, seems a no brainer to me, but am I missing anything? Both are Titanium only difference is the engine?[/quote]
this can well happen, especially with such traders as drive the deal or dealdrivers. They are getting the best prices available at a given time and deliver the car to your dealer or to your doors.
2.2 is consuming a lot more, with diesel prices higher not many people want to pay just for the double exhaust
. 2.2 is a more prefomant motor however 2.0 diesel is largly enouph for day to day commute, consumes less and still gives you a fun drive if you want.
If you have no issues with consumption around 25-30 mpg go for 2.2 especially if it is cheaper.
The only problem with 2.2 I am aware of was a hesitating engine at certain revvs, but that is fixed by engine programming long time ago. A good motor
