Take the 1.2 16v over the 8v even if it does end up costing you a bit more for the car and a bit more to insure. There's a world of difference between the two 1.2 engines.

Insurance-wise, it cost us less to insure our 1.2 16v Clio fully comp when it was brand new than it did for TPF&T on the ten year old Orion 1.6i Ghia that we had before it.
Currently in Horatio's garage:
2010 Laguna III Initiale.
