From personal choice you'd be happier with the 1.8 tdci.
For 5000 you'll be within range of most of the higher spec ones.
Basically with the 1.8 as long as it's been serviced on a regular schedule you'll have no worries at all.
The 1.6 has a dreaded particulate filter on the exhaust and unless you do a load of motorway or A road driving you'll be likely to have problems as it needs a regenerative cycle carried out to avoid clogging with soot and carbon.
