Which used Vauxhall Tigra coupe should I buy?
With only two engines available, there isn't much choice. The 1.4 16v unit produces 89bhp, and the 1.6 16v gives 104bhp, but there isn't much different in performance between the two, so the 1.4 is a better buy, as it's cheaper to run.
That said, steer clear of any 1.4 car fitted with the optional four-speed auto 'box as it doesn't do anything for performance and dulls the overall drive. There was only a five-speed manual on the 1.6-litre.
