I prefer the 2002 car but am worried about the performance on a 1.6? Read a review that says ‘All bar the 1.6 provide smooth performance’. Would like to hear from anyone who has owned the 1.6? What’s it like overtaking etc? Anyone had both the 1.6 & 1.8 how do they compare? Mainly just use my car to and from work about 20mile a day around Chester but also travel up to Wales A55 a few times a month so anything that underperformed would just do my head in.
All comment welcome
