Hi Nick....welcome to the Club

It really depends on what sort of driving you will mostly be doing...e.g. motorway driving then a diesel is fine, town driving either small diesel or most certainly petrol and hybrid.

Town driving and work do cover around 170 mile a week and once a month will be doing a 650 mile round trip and the occasional uk holiday to cornwall

Welcome to the Cub, Nick.  With that mileage/driving profile you should have no trouble with the DPF in a Diesel.

I think the 270 would be fine if lower gears are used and engine revs are high as this would keep the engine running clean and also should be quite close to the 200 for economy.

I was looking for v6 3.0  (i was not aware of the 2.2d)  I saw the one I eventually bought following a test drive and was not aware of the engine size till we got back from the drive.   I was more than impressed with the performance and sealed the deal.   I have no regrets after over a year.
