My personal choice is the 160bhp 2.0 engine, and I prefer the five-speed gearbox (the six-speed unit is sportier but notchier).
The 1.7-litre tested was noisier and it had to be worked harder to perform.nbsp;nbsp;The five speed box also had a notchier gear change than the two litre's six-speeder.
The six-speed box on the test car was noticeably notchier than the five- speed unit but its spread of ratios was probably better and certainly meant it was easier to keep the engine spinning in its optimum power band.
