1.0 Ecoboost, or 1.6 Ecoboost?

I am interested in the Ford C-Max. I do not do more than 8k miles per annum and will not tow a trailer. Would you recommend the 1.6T or 1.0T 125 PS ecoboost engine?

Depends on how much performance you want. My exeprience of the 1.6 Ecoboost and the 1.0 Ecoboost is that in a car the size of the C-Max, the 1.6 is likely to workout the best in everyday use. The 1.0 Ecoboost works best in the Fiesta and B-Max.
