Is it just me but I prefer the shape of the old Model to the new one maybe it's because I own one?
But when time comes to change I wouldn't automatically choose the new QQ not sure about the
1.2 engines either I have two pals that own a note and a pulsar with these engines and at first
They were waxing lyrical about them but now a couple months on moaning about no power
When overtaking./Fuel consumption which leads me to think if I change it will have to be the 1.6
Either petrol/diesel.

I love the new shape... Clamshell bonnet lol looks cool.
As or the engine. It's needs driving correctly to get the power to overtake.

Don't the other engines you mentioned have Turbo's

In my experience you can have the power to overtake or have good fuel consumption, but not both!

Oh yes I agree, but I'm not in "overtake" mode all the time

Plenty of power with the 1.2 Turbo, it kicks out 115 bhp which will give good acceleration, keeping up if not better than most cars, if you use your gears correctly and ensure the turbo kicks in. The diesels may have more torque but not necessarily the acceleration to match the petrol one, but you can keep in gears longer.
If you need to boy race most of the time, go for the 1.6 T petrol, 163 bhp will get you away from the traffic lights pretty nifty.

Can't agree with you in any respect that the older model looks better, inside or out.

I have to disagree on everything you say my friend.

Engines not necessarily comparable on different models of car as theyre probably mapped differently to suit each model.

Very true, I have noticed the new Renault Kadjar with the same 1.2T engine throws out 130 bhp, so your mapping theory is spot on. It's a shame the QQ did not tune the engine to the same spec'n.

Same with the 1.5dci in the Megane rated at 136bhp - that was a few years ago when I got my 1st QQ though
