Strange that. When I had a 1.6d loaner, I thought it was quieter than my 1.5t. I suspected the reduced road noise was due to the narrower, higher profile tyres. But it could just be to make.
So favourite for me is the 1.5 auto which I reckon gives similar performance to my old 2.2.
A good choice IMHO
