1.3 and 1.6 8v share same design. The 1.6 8v is just a longer stroke. 1.6 16v is completely different than the sammy 1.3L. I believe the 1.6 16v is similiar in parts to a 1.3L swift engine.
Yes the 1.6 8v puts out less HP than the 16V version but the advantage is its a non-interference engine. Which means when the timing belt breaks you don't replace the engine. :^) Plus when you do change your timing belt it takes the fear out of doing it yourself.
