I am looking at the new 2.0 litre tdci but note the petrol versions are significantly cheaper to buy .I'm not overly bothered about the running costs debate long term but is there any significant difference in performance ? :unsure:

A test drive would be the best way.

Petrol less problems , but diesel has better performance.
Parts for diesels e g. injectors, diesel pump, turbo etc are very, very expensive - it is up to u.
If u can get diesel with low milage thats fine, if more than 70k better give up.
