Hi weatheraldI know the one I chose and for good reason 2.0 tdi s tronic.
1. Cheaper to buy
2. Cheaper to run
3. Cheaper to tax
4. Higher residuals
5. Marginal performance difference.
It`s a no brainer !!
Yep its the 3.0TDI, I mostly take it easy and dont put the foot down often. 2K miles since new and Trip 2 is sitting at 30.0mpg from when i picked it up. As i said its mostly town driving and short runs 20miles max at a time.That's the 3.0TDI you're driving? I'm pretty surprised you're getting so much better mileage than others..
I'm pretty sure the cars are not actually driven on the road but tested in a lab. I think they use a rolling road with a special set program that must be followed. The road load is probably based on things like speed, vehicle weight and drag coefficient.......
They must run the cars around a perfectly flat track, behind a huge lorry to act as a wind break, when they obtain their quoted figures !!!!
