I'm looking at buying a corsa limited edition 1.2 soon & noticed that the old D has 84bhp and the new E has 69,
why has it dropped??

The 1.2 engines are the same from what I've been told. It's probably something to do with weight, or extra electronics.

Also, it's not BHP. It's PS or HP.

Possibly to do with making a bigger gap between the 1.2 and 1.4 because the D 1.4 was 100, the E is 90, and I believe the D 1.2 was 80 so 10 of a difference would probably mean either or not selling as well, I'd suggest you go for at least the 1.4 n/a anyway, tax is the same price on an LE, 1.4 is much better to drive, and minimal extra expense to buy and insure, that said despite being lower power the E 1.2 is a vast improvement on the D 1.2.
