I have the 1.5Turbo and had a 1.6 as a loaner when my car was in for the aircon whistle a couple of days ago. I prefer my 1.5 hands down. The high low revs torque that I was used to having owned 2x 2.2 Accords, was disappointing. In fact I stalled it a couple of times (then hunted around for the start button )
MPG was quite a lot higher, and the road noise was less from the narrower tyres.
