Rather have the dCi 100, I think... Easier to drive due to all that low down grunt and shouldn't really be any slower at the top end, bar of course, the usual turbodiesel lag, plus if you're doing a significant number of miles the diesel's got to be much cheaper to run.

Can't really see where this fits in myself. It's fairly similar in power to other petrol engines previously in the range, but I guess it's lighter...

However, can't see myself wanting another small car anyway, even if I didn't have a particular need for a big one. There's always times where it's handy and I don't really notice any difference in convenience with regard to parking.
