The engine is paired with the ZF 9HP 9-speed gearbox. I know that more gears is usually seen as better, but honestly, until they have something that is as efficient and as reliable and as just awesome as the 8HP I’d stay with that one. Now, our love for the 8HP aside, the 9HP is smooth and fast and it helps this engine use just 6 L per 100km officially.
OK, now, as I’ve said, there are more powerful options for this vehicle, but the D180 is good enough for most drivers who need a small SUV. The gearbox keeps the engine in comfortable revs at all times and the torque is pretty good and comes in very low. I mean obviously the P300 would be more fun, but this is still good.
