Most can't tell it's a diesel when outside running. While driving it's very quiet and passengers don't notice the diesel sound. I do enjoy the faint turbo sound though.

I respectfully disagree. My wife's 20d sounds fine, and rarely "dieselly" at all. It sounds surprisingly aggressive when you really step on the accelerator and a lot less tinnier than the sound of my Mazda CX-5's engine. However, we were given a loaner with the gasoline 6 (340 hp version) and it sounded considerably more aggressive when pressed. Perhaps more 4-banger than 6-banger than diesel versus gas, but more of the powerful engine sound than the 20d. Notwithstanding the less aggressive sound, she's extremely happy with the 20d. I find the performance to be more than adequate for everyday driving.

Just to clarify, I was comparing the 2 four cylinder Jaguar engines, not the 6 vs the 4.
I just did not recognize any noticeable difference in the engine sounds between the two. JMHO.
