Too small for a family car, too town-oriented for motorway use for any length of time, and so prone to rust that they'd do so in the Atacama. If road noise is a concern then you're also SOL as they're so light and cheaply made that there will be LOADS of road noise above 50mph, and they're also unstable at speed.
An Escort would be a much better choice on a budget, and the 1.6 would be decent on the motorway without being too thirsty around town, not too bad for road noise, and FAR better for a family car. The 1.3 would be better if it's only occasional motorway driving as it's cheaper to tax, run, and insure.
Depends on your budget (initial and monthly), mileage, and type of driving, so a little more information and we can offer better suggestions.
