I would wait for the new oil burner, or wrap the bonnet.
Having got the use of the 1.4 9thgen for the week which finishes this weekend I miss the extra umph of the 1.8 so you will find the 1.4 a little sluggish I think.
That said I do like the dash, the better view through the rear window & the rear wiper, smoother ride & no rattles
Go and see Dann & drive round town in one, but take it on the motorway as well, that will put your mind at rest.
And do let us know how you get on !
