Yeah, I was thinking the 1.6 would give a little more power/torque when overtaking. I checked and the insurance seems the same (I think) and the 1.6 is only 2mpg worse than the 1.4.

The 1.4 is 5 door so not going on that one.
The 1.6 has the tow bar so not so sure now (Even if I ask they may say it never towed anything or that it was from previous owner).

So I think I will keep my eye on similar adverts, 1.4/1.6, 3 door, black clios

Saying that the tow bar has a shiney rubber on it & it looks quite new or not used .....
