Would the Opel Combo suit my business?

Is the 1.2 diesel engine in the Opel Combo too small to carry loads? I was going to invest in a Ford Transit Connect. Please give your thoughts.

Hi Karl,

No, the 1.2 (actually it's a 1.3 really) diesel in the Opel Combo is the same unit that Opel co-developed with Fiat, so it should have either 75- or 90hp and plenty of torque. Clearly, a larger engine means you can haul larger payloads, but unless you're a gym weights delivery company, you should be OK.
