Default Will i be disapointed with a 1.6 engine if i had my sights set on a 2.0?

I drive a vauxhall corsa 1.2, 16v. I drive very fast due to living in a rural area and had my sights set on getting a new car, a Honda civic type R (2.0 litres). However i have not had the best of financial times lately and have decided i must get a smaller engined car instead (probably a civic sport 1.6 i-Vtech)I have never driven anything more powerful than a 1.2 before and i am wondering if i will be impressed with the increased power?...Has anyone made this step recently, and what dyou think...Will i be dissapointed with my new engine???
