Re: X-Type 2.0 or 2.5???
Well, not quite, the US gallon is only 3.8 litres.....but it's still
We took delivery of a New X-Type SE 2.0 Auto a month ago for my wife, and
we're delighted with it.
Personally if it were my car I'd have bought the larger engine, but it isn't
really mine and my wife doesn't like powerful cars.
The interior sold it to us, for the money it was a whole world nivcer inside
than either a Luexus or Mercedes C class we were also considering.
Go for the 2.5 or the 3.0 if you can manage it, from what I've seen in
manufacturer consumption figures, the fuel consumption difference between
the three is negligable.
The only stand out is the 2.2d which is very economical, but then my wife
can only drive auto's or we would have bought one of those.
