Volkswagen Golf diesel: 1.6 or 1.9 TDI?

Looking at getting a Golf diesel, 2008 onwards as my next automobile, but I'm not sure whether to go for a the 1.6 or 1.9? What would the difference in cost of diesel be too, thanks?

Hi Daniel,

Definitely go for the 1.6. It's a much more modern unit than the 1.9 and is quieter and more frugal. I'd estimate that in real-world terms you should get around 5-10mpg more out of the 1.6 compared to the 1.9.
