The SL1 obviously has far more tricks in the locker than the older model- not least movie capture- though if you're primarily into stills I'm not sure you'd be gaining a huge amount.
That said, the 18mp stills does give you more latitude for cropping and it's dynamic range and noise control is possibly a step up from the older (but still useful...) XSi/450D.
I recently got my hands on a 600D- with a similar sensor- and found the IQ to be very good- though the kit lens wasn't. Let's hope the newer STM lens atop the SL1/100D is optically superior to the MKII 18-55 IS lens... (the MKI was fine...!)
