The 1.2 petrol felt a little underpowered for where I live (although it did remarkably well for such a small engine) so the 1.6dCi was the only other auto choice. My understanding is that the 1.5dCi is quieter (it has belt drive, the 1.6 has chain) and has better fuel economy, but the 1.6 feels noticeably more gutsy. I would have liked a Tekna for the extra toys, but N-tec+ was the highest option I could get and is a pretty awesome spec.
Yeah, know what you mean about noisy cam chains with the X-Trail!
I think the Tekna might be slightly out of my budget but you never know I might drop on one at the right price.
