Do a search on this forum, there are plenty of good reports on the driveability of the 1.3s

i should imagine it will be far quieter, smoother and more economical than the old 1.9. if its a facelift it will have the 85bhp engine which is a bonus and all have plenty of torque although maybe a bit higher up the rev range.

The downside is far more sensors, maybe a dpf, an egr and a variable geometry turbo that can give trouble. The cars arent unreliable but people have the habit of trading in cars that have problems so be careful.
