mcalr3 Posted August 11, 2015 Share Posted August 11, 2015 Hi All - hope I have posted this in the correct place! My fiance is looking for her first car for commuting. She will be doing approx 45 miles a day, of which about 42 is motorway. Works out to about 11000 miles a year. Traffic is sometimes an issue so approx 5 miles of stop start driving per day on this route. We have test driven both the 1.0 Ecoboost (100PS) and the 1.5 TDCI (75PS) both 15 plate titanium models with around 5000 miles on the clock - the diesel is £200 more but cant make up our minds as to which engine will be best? The diesel feels more torquey and the petrol feels more refined, I know alot of you would say its down to preference but what is good advice as to which is the best one for us and the amount of miles being driven? Also, do the new facelift Fiestas have the issue with the Alloy wheels buckling? Thanks Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
