Scenic 1.9 DCI or 1.9 DTI

I just know I'm gonna look dumb but here goes...

Set the scene, I'm living in France and speak French passably well but the car dealer I'm buying from has a very pronounced Provencal accent so we are having slight communications difficulty. Also his garage is too far away for me to just drive and pop the bonnet for a second look today. Oh yeah, I'm a total Renault noob and I'm financially strapped just now so my choices are limited.

I'm on the verge of buying a 2002 Scenic, it's a 1.9 diesel but I can't find out for certain if it's a DCI or a DTI.
It's advertised as a DCI but he is telling me it's a 5HP but I think it should be 6HP. Link to ad

Which is better? Should I be unduly concerned as long as I'm happy with the price?
Currently in Bosco's garage:
2005 Scenic II 1.5 dCi
