    Me old man used to own a 1.6. You usually have to make it work hard (around 3600-4000rpms) to keep up with the moving traffic. It also lacks the potential to overtake cars safely.

    The good side of it is it gives you excellent fuel economy. It never had DIS (Driver's Information System) so I couldn't give you the mpg figures. It's noticeably less nose heavy while cornering (especially compared to my V6) because its a much lighter engine, in addition to that and you don't have to brake as hard to slow down/stop hence less brake wear.

    If I remember correctly, as far as equipment is concerned (96-97 models) The 1.6 SE had leather steering wheel and gaiter, electric sunroof and 15" alloys over the 1.6 standard. I think the 1.8 had climate control over the 1.6/1.6SE. Packages may have changed after that year.

    1.6 - 101bhp.
    1.8 - 125bhp.

    My mate had a 1600 when he was 17, it sounded good with the airbox off. His had over 100k on it and was fine.
