The 1.5 and diesel are completely different beasts. If you're used to the 2.2 (which was very good and had to been 'rained in' during testing because it was faster than the DM Type R) then you might be disappointed with the new diesel. It's very good, don't get me wrong, but has been tuned to meet the latest public outcry against dirty diesels and the new testing criteria. If you still want 70mpg then go for the diesel but if you want cracking performance and 55mpg then go for the petrol. Plus production of diesels is being drastically reduced so will become like rocking horse poop before model run out. So if you do decide, order one soon.
