I wouldn't be surprised if that was the case. The 2.4 is pretty underwhelming in everything it is used in. I was briefly impressed with it in the Renegade, but that was after 4 years of driving a Nissan March with a 1.0L 4 in it (no turbo).I'm willing to bet my bottom dollar...or €0.84...or £0.72 as the case may be...that it's the 4 cylinder version of the 200 that's being referred to. It would be hard not to argue that the 2.4 litre leaves much to be desired. But...in V6 form, the 200 all of a sudden becomes a very pleasant driving experience.
Looking back...I wonder why the 3.2 litre V6 was never offered on the 200. Since hindsight is always 20/20...I wonder if the 200 should have been offered with the 3.2 as standard equipment, and the 3.6 as the upgrade option.
As long as I'm indulging in my own personal fantasy...A turbocharged or supercharged version of the 3.6 would have been so SWEET!!!
