Renault Kadjar - cam belt or chain?

I'm looking to buy a used diesel Renault Kadjar and as it's pretty hilly around here am leaning towards the 1.6 for more grunt. I am aware the 1.5 has a belt and the 1.6 a chain but should I be wary as when I come to sell it after 80,000-90,000 and 8 to 9 years I may have difficulty in case the chain needs replacing.

Chains are very durable so long as you stick to the recommended services schedules, a full service history will make the car an attractive purchase when you come to sell it.
