Default 2.0 to 1.6 C5

hi Guys,
my 2009 2.0 C5 is due to retire. It isn't worth it to renew the COE as i'll need to replace a few rather expensive items, like suspension + mountings + compressor etc.
I am thinking of getting the newer 1.6 THP C5 Exclusive. Besides a smaller engine with higher BHP, what are the noticeable differences? I am also keen to know from your experiences if the heat dissipation in the engine bay is good enough for the turbocharged 1.6, thus reducing the likelihood of plastic/rubber parts degenerating ..
Thanks guys!
