What about whole life costs say 90,000 miles in tdci v ecoboost 180hb say. The tdci does not need additives in the DPF any longer I'm told, although I guess more can go wrong (and more expensive). Do we think that the ecooboost will stand the test over the longer term (bearing in mind turbo chargers, Variable valve timing etc).

Give both a long test drive and see which one YOU prefer i.e low down torque or better rev range ect.

Avoid the lower powered 1.6 105ps petrol unit found in the Edge and Zetec trims.
I'll tell you something; a family member owned a C-Max zetec 2.0 automatic and he thought the fuel economy was shocking but found the power was adequate. When he decided to change his car, he went for a Focus 1.6 petrol 100ps automatic estate. He assumed the car would have been more environmentally friendly whilst still having a respectable turn of speed. He said his 2.0 C-Max automatic was more powerful and more fuel efficient, and he also stated that going for a smaller engine doesn't neccesarily mean more miles per gallon.
