Engine wise? Depends how you drove it, but the VTi is obviously built to be driven hard. If you did the same with the 1.3 DX engine I imagine it wouldn't last as long, but who would have the patience to test that lol
Why do you ask anyway? Are you planning on buying either or? I wouldn't worry, anyone that drives a 1.3 is for insurance purposes, which in time don't matter so much and you progress to bigger and more powerful engines.
