    Wiki suggests half made at ford factories, half at psa. But doesn't say I the TDCi ones are always made at ford. – richardstelmach Jan 22 '16 at 19:05

    @Zaid, wiki does not have any solid information on the answer, just background. Hopefully someone else will have a better source of information that has more details. – Ian Ringrose Jan 22 '16 at 19:18
  • Would be good to know, if I'd known it was a Peugeot engine I wouldn't have bought it. – richardstelmach Jan 23 '16 at 9:27
