    Default HDI & "The Loop"

    Hello all,
    I have just discovered "The Loop".

    As a new HDI owner & having just purchased the all new all singing all dancing latest cutting edge technology 1,6 HDI 307 XSR,it appears to me that the (according to the list of 307 HDI's in "The Loop") HDI range is a 1,6 80 (hp?)/240 (nm-ftlb???) -the engine available now- plus a 2,0 litre 100 hp(?)/320(nm?) engine available in May.

    What is going on here?

    I was under the impression that the 1,6 HDI was the all new just released engine & the 2,0 litre non-intercooled diesel was being phased out & was old technology & less efficient,less driveable around town etc etc.
    Is there a new high-tech 2,0 litre HDI 307 being released here in Australia?
    The Peugeot salespeople gave the impression that it was new1,6 was the latest & greatest & only HDI available from now on & there was absolutely no talk about a further 2,0 high-tech HDI.
    Can anyone shed some light this please?
    If there was a 2,0 litre 100/320 high tech HDI available now I may have considered it rather than the 1,6 litre.
    Have Peugeot "conned" me & other 1,6HDI buyers or is there a glaring inaccuracy in "The Loop"?
    Looking forward to your feedback.
    Regards,
    Richard.

    In short yes, yes and yes. The 2.0 out of the 407 is being put into the 307 100kw 320nm, should go like a cut snake.

    It appears that the 2.0L is only available in the Touring model and as a 6 speed manual. The hatch only comes with the 1.6

    Anyone heard any different?
