    Vehicle : Insignia

    Trim : SRI VX-Line Nav

    Engine : 2.0 CDTI [170 PS]

    Year : 2015

    Mileage : 27000

    Default

    The 1.8VVT is 140PS, and the 2.2 DIRECT is 155PS, but although both engines are very reliable the 1.8 has the edge here on the 2.2 and is still quite punchy.

    Also looking at it from this point of view, the 1.8 is more powerful per litre (78PS/ltr) than the 2.2 (71PS/ltr).

    Hi. Do you find it ok, powerwise, my biggest concern is the power to weight ratio. Does the 1.8 cope ok with the c's weight?

    Default Just got a 2.2 Direct

    Just to add to the debate,

    I got my 2.2 about 3 weeks ago, previously had a 2.5v6 sport - and the C spec is way beyond my expectations.

    I shared your concerns about the 1.8, had one of those on a 'Y' reg and didn't fancy it in this. However the 2.2 is really quick, only done 120 so far, but I enjoy it immensely. The engine is very quite, sound is uninspiring, but it delivers, and that's what matters. Fuel consumption, 6th gear, cruise control, all just icing on the cake to me. If it has a downside, i'd point to the double exhaust, maybe costly in time.

    Decision made, go drive!

    I've got a 1.8 and can't fault it... It's not a performance car of course, but it's got more than enough pull in it for normal driving.

    I tested the 1.8 and 2.2 prior to getting my 2.2. Quite a difference in terms of power/torque, love the 2x exhausts, 6th gear - Great engine. The 1.8 just felt a bit wheezy with the Veccy's weight.
