Re: 1.6 TS - decent power?
It is pretty good, if you compare with other 1,6 cars. The problem is you will soon start to feel equal to 2,0 models out there and even though the 1,6TS is great revy engine, it is underpowered to compete in this comparison.
Once I had a "spirited" drive in my 147 with 1,6TS 156 I met and I can say both cars are equally fast. There are some small differences, but if you don’t drive on the limit both seem to have the same performance.
But if you can, go for 1,8TS, it has more low-down torque and will be more pleasant to drive everyday.
