Just driven the local authority Ford Fiesta diesel.
And i cannot believe have quiet it is to drive when comparing my Vitara 2015 diesel.
Not so much the road noise, more of the engine noise. The Vitara is so much more noisier.
Is there a way of deading the engine sound in the cab of the Vitara?

TAKE YOUR HEARING AID OUT !!!! Had my Vitara for 3 years; regularly serviced, and one of the quietist engines I have ever had. Passengers often ask " is this a petrol or diesel " ?

Had my Vitara for 3 years also and had all its serving done at Suzuki.
It is my first diesel and thought all diesels sounded the same, until I heard my works Fiesta diesel this actually does sound like a petrol engine.

The Vitara is a very noisy engine and I have heard the Fiat big 500 diesel too today which is also very noisy. So its the engine that is the issue. or lack of sound padding in the cab.

My Vitara is 30 000 miles, serviced regularly by JJ Motors Cross Hands, and the quietest diesel I have ever had.

I'm quite impressed with mine - seems pretty quiet once warmed up. My previous car was a Citroen C-Crosser with the 2.2Hdi lump in - now that was a noisy engine!
