I think that it is all to do with power on the 1.6 models when it came out they had a five speed gear box and it was very under powered giving it a poor mpg on the motorway so rather than change the engine size on the 1.6 models they put a 6 speed gear box in to give it better mpg weather its any good i do not know.

A gimmic would be a guess
Currently in Donald's garage:
2005 Mercedes Benz C200 Classic SE Kompresser & 1998 Fiat Cinquecento Fire Sporting,some may say i could do far better?,i say i could do far worse.
