I have to admit that I haven't test driven the 2.0 L engine. How does it compare to it's brother which is 0.3 L bigger in displacement? Is the power difference that noticeable? Is the 2.0 L quite smooth as well?

I've heard some say that the 2.0 isn't as smooth as the 2.3 and the power difference is somewhat noticable. However, I still haven't had the chance to drive both myself.

11kw more power, but more importantly, 22nm extra torque.

People will pay up to $1000 or more for and extra 10kw gain.

Where as for extra torque, alot more extra money is needed to get significant gains.

i've test driven both.
the power is not that noticible to the average person who isn't looking to buy a car for thrills.
i didn't drive the 2.0 for too long tho, so i don't know about how smooth it is in the long run.

if you're buying a car to get from point A to point B, get the 2.0L
it'll save you money.

Is it really that noticeable?
I guess the butt dyno would be able to tell a little bit, eh?
