true, but the fact is a turbo car will never last as long as a NA one, regardless of material quality. It also comes down to how the car is meant to be driven, spank the NA 1L off a rev limiter all day and it won't give a crap, give it bad fuel and bad oil and the effect is negligable, you just can't do those things with a turbo. They don't just go "bang" for no reason, it certianly isn't easy to ruin one accidently but that's just how it is.
That’s true, though I doubt OP has much to worry about regarding this since it is a first car and probably won’t be kept for the whole lifespan of the car.
1L turbos seem like a sweet spot for getting the power you need to overtake and feel more comfortable on the road whilst also keeping insurance and fuel costs down :rolleyes:

certainly, a 90-150hp turbo 1 liter will give good economy and power without having any problem. The 90hp turbo'ed up is what they'ed want if they go for an up, but the 60 and 75 NA's have their advantages too, power defeceit aside
