The actual numerical difference is something like 12 HP between them, IIRC.

Gasoline Fumes will surely know, and probably be able to correct me on that.
I can do that!

XFi 1.0L .................................................. .. 49 HP
Normal 1.0L .............................................. 55 HP
Turbo 1.0L ................................................ 70 HP (I think)
1989-1997 1.3L ....................................... 70 HP (SOHC 8V)
1998-2001 1.3L ....................................... 79 HP (SOHC 16V)
1989-1994 Swift GT/GTi 1.3L ................. 100 HP (DOHC 16V)
