I don't drive with the AX yet. I've bought it recently and I'm changing the valvetrain belt + water pump. I'll be driving the 106 until May.

The drag coefficient is 0.31. I guess the hood/windshield angle is good. Compared to the 205 (0.34), I see the road much nearer.
My engine is a 1.5 diesel. There was also a first-generation 1.4 but it was not reliable (many head gasket problems) because the engine was designed too lightweight (all aluminium alloy).
Most come with a 1.0 or 1.1 gasoline, yes. There were some sportier versions like the GT which was not ridiculous at all, 95 hp and 730 kg.
