Buying a used Skoda Yeti - which diesel is best?

I need a compact 4x4 with an automatic gearbox. I've seen two used Skoda Yetis for sale, both diesels with 10k on the clock. One is a 170PS, the other a 150PS with AdBlue. Which would be the best choice for long term ownership?

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.
