Re: What does the diesel actually sound like?
I've driven a lot of diesel cars, my Wife's car is a Mazda 6 atenza diesel, my daily driver is a ford courier diesel, some are dump truck noisy, others are more refined.
The GC diesel, from the outside at idle, is distinctly a diesel! From inside the car, it's very quiet.
No turbo noise when spooling up, no rattling valve gear, and as its a CRD, no injection pump noise.
