you have just compared the old 1.5 to the new 1.1?? What about the 1.4?And possibly a 1.25 turbo in the 3 door later this year...eyebee said:Good decision Davy. I just had a test drive in a Rio diesel and compared to the old 1.5crdi the performance is woefull. Nice car otherwise but way over priced. I doubt if a remap could even generate enough power out of this 1.1 lump.
Maybe because the new Rio is in a whole different league compared to the old one. Lets face it the old Rio was outdated so quickly and the 1.5 was an old engine and will no longer meet various new standards in emissions etc. My old 40" TV cost 500 quid now the updated one with all the bells and whistles cost me 800... think about it my friend.davy said:There is way too much of an increase in OTR prices.
£10600 for the base model and £14900 for top model where the old model was £8400 for base and £11550 for top one.
Some difference in prices eh. Just cant get my head round how they can hike it up that amount just cause its a new model.
