Isn't it the TUD engine?

Say Tud with a Glaswegian accent and it doesn't sound too complementary. It reminds me of Citroen selling the BX TRD in the 1980s.

My brother has a 106 with the 1.4, I thought it looked familiar. He moans that it's gutless but does do great mpg. His 106 is low mileage too, 30k from new and in pretty good condition.
