Default Interference engines?

Are Saxo engines Interference engines or non Interference engines?
In other words, does the head need replacing because the valves get 'bent' when cambelt breaks?

depends on how bad its damage the head, it its bent into the head then it will need a new head. i think most valve stems are removable

TU engines are interference engines, so chances are high that the valves will be damaged if the cambelt has slipped or snapped
