Look at the mileage. Both are good options, 1.6 has a slightly lower fuel consumption.
1.9 has a "pumpe duese" fuel injection system, which is a tad noisier.
1.6 is the new engine, fuel injection is now "common rail" (VW dropped PD systems).

And also depends on if you want to later fit a 6 speed box, And as far as i am aware that is still only possible with the 1.9.
