Hi guys,

I am not an owner yet but will be buying a used C Max Diesel mpv soon.
Problem is i have been told only some have TDCi engine but that is the best one to go for.
i am looking to buy an 05 to 57 plate 1.6 or 1.8 car so i wonder if someone can tell me
which models would be right.
For example some ads say "TD zetec" others say "TDCi style" and so on
but does it mean they are different types or is it that the ad which says TD is actually TDCi?

As a 1.6 TDCI owner I thought all the diesels were TDCI but wait to be corrected
In respect of choice 1.6 / 1.8 there is not a lot to it. One point is that certain of the 1.6 with only 129g CO2 are only £90 VED

Well, Richard is correct.<?: prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-comfficeffice" />
All available diesel engines in the C–max range are TDCI, being Turbo Diesel Commonrail Injection. Both 1.6tdci and 2.0tdci are engines built in cooperation with PSA. The 1.8tdci is Ford's own and is often referred to as td, but it's most def a tdci.
There' bound to be benefits to either engine but that's going to come down to personal preferences, I guess.

Hi buteman, all diesels are tdci, the ad missed th ci, which one to go for?? Well that really depends on your budget!! There's plenty to choose from top of the range being the ghia/ titanium with all the toys, like Richard said his 1.6tdci has a ved of £90, engine size is again down to personal choice & budget I own a 2.0ltr tdci ghia and love everything about it especially the performance.

Great, thanks for the answers. i am sure this will help because I can then look at a greater range than otherwise.
