i keep hearing alot of info, some people say the 1.6 is better being a sigma engine is it? with help from yamaha, then there are people who say the 1.8 is better,
i dont want to get a 1.6 and find it isent very gutsy, i remember the 1.8 i had in one of the mondeos i have owned, was very revvy and was very quick off the mark for what it was.
any help would be much appreciated,
Obviously the 1.8 has more power but that is not to say the 1.6 is not up to the job, as already said do loads of motorway driving 1.8. But I'm off down south on hols 362 miles, all but 16 miles will be motorway and a bit of dual carriage way, in a 1.6 cruising at 70/75 not a problem.
I had a 1.8 Zetec prior to going to a 2.0l TD diesel, then now back in a 1.6 Zetec Climate. To be honest in everyday driving I don't see much difference between the 1.8 and the 1.6. If your young there is insurance premiums to consider, Road Tax difference, and MPG 5 mpg between the two.
