TJet 150 Sport vs MJet 165 Sport

Looking 6 months ahead i have a decision whether to stay in the company car scheme or opt out

If I opt out I can use my Bravo for company business, but as I will be doing 12k private + 12K business it will quickly be time to look at a replacement

With this in mind I just went to look at the Giulietta and honestly was very underwelmed

So Perhaps the best bet is to buy (as i have done) a few years old Bravo and replace every few years.
Also, bearing in mind the mileage I will be doing a diesel starts to make sense.

has anyone driven both the TJet 150 Sport vs MJet 165 Sport?

Re: TJet 150 Sport vs MJet 165 Sport

Hi, I've driven both and can say that the 165 is a much better car, the engine is smoother and you can feel the power differance between the cars imo
also i think its cheaper on tax and better mpg so its the car i would go for.
Thanks RobW thanked for this post

cheers

well i really love my TJet 150 Sport so if the 165 is better than that's great!

but all depends on purchase price differentials wheter you actually gain from the higher mpg

Don't forget the 165 has a dpf, so don't get one unless you intend to drive it "right"
