Which Yeti engine?

What would be the best Yeti to buy for doing 8000/10000 miles per annum out of 1.6tdi CR 105 SE Greenline 2 5dr and 1.2 Tsi SE 2WD 5dr?
I currently drive a Renault Scenic 1.9 Dci but will need to replace this next year.

A high driving position is needed because of back problems and a driver's lumbar support is available as option on this model.

I would would mainly be doing short journeys.

The 1.2TSI 105. It's actually very sweet to drive and handles far better than the heavier diesels.

Unique styling. Solid build. Excellent petrol engines including frugal yet peppy 1.2 TSI. Good space in the back. Frugal 1.6 TDI Greenline can return 60mpg+. Much loved model.
