The 2.0 and 1.6 diesel engines in the 2015 facelift were both the BMW N47 units

I had a 2005 2.0 D4D and now have a 2016 2.0 with the BMW engine.

The new car is much nicer to drive, the engine is more smoother and more tractable.  It drives much like a petrol engine.  The old car had a very pronounced turbo surge and a was easy to stall.    Fuel consumption is slightly worse on the new car.

Last time I spoke to my dealer's mechanics about it (which was over a year ago) they seemed to think it was a sideways move. It's benefit to Toyota was that they didn't have to invest in R&D developing an EU6 diesel for a relatively low volume.
