Default 407 SW HDi - 1.6 vs 2.0

Hi

I'm new to the forum, although I've had my 306 for nearly a year now.

I'm looking for a 407 SW, about 2005/2006 I can't decide on the 2.0 or the 1.6.

I know the obvious - rcheaper road tax, better mpg, better insurance, maybe...

I have only had the oportunity to test drive the 2.0 which was great, I'm not sure of the 1.6 will be a little under powered?

Any opinions at all will be greatfully recieved...

Thanks

2 litre every time 1.6 is under a lot of strain making the 110hp and pulling such a big car

None are totaly reliable but the 2 litre is better in terms of being able to fix it except the turbo its a mission

I'd go for 2ltr every time.

They seem to have less turbo issues.

Try to get a an x line or zenith less issues around dpf.

are the x line or zenith not fitted with a dpf?

Depends if fuel economy is a big issue for you? I have owned a 1.6 saloon and now a 2.0 and I do miss the frugality of the 1.6. Do you want to justify a 26bhp increase for a larger fuel consumption.less issues with the dpf as in a 1.6 you can feel the car wanting to regenerate and you can actively keep the car on the road so it will complete the regen. I can't feel it on the 2.0 163. The only thing I found with the 1.6 is that it misses a 6th gear

Aren't 100% sure on the later models but the early one's are without dpf.

Any you look at get the vin number and we can tell you what is/isn't fitted.

I know Seb has had both also and I'm sure he prefers the 2ltr.
