    I'd pick the smaller if turbo charged. I drive too far on too many hills, and the 1.2 already gets me annoyed when I'm in 3rd screaming along to not lose speed at full throttle.

    Now this old thread has been bumped, I'll put in my two cents.
    The long-term fuel consumption with my 1.0L 3A90 is still 4.3L/100km which is close to 55mpg American, nothing has changed over the years.

    In a comparison between the 1.0L and 1.2L you would quickly notice one really big difference: The 1.0 has definitely very much less power at low revs than the 1.2L. You also need to switch gears much more often in hilly districts.
