1.4 tfsi auto

Do you think the 1.4 TFSI will be underpowered ?

Can't say why you'd think that? It's a great engine with 150bhp and plenty of torque, don't forget the Q2 being on the MQB platform is a very light vehicle and I expect the 1.4 combined with S-Tronic to be a very good combo.

I expect it'll be quite sprightly, I own a Golf Mk7 GTD and it flys along with the standard 182bhp, admittedly a diesel will have more low end poke, but the TFSi offsets that with it being a lighter engine.

I haven't driven an Audi / VW with this engine but I had a Golf Mk6 GT 1.4 TSi twin charge which was very rapid and if memory serves me correctly that had 160bhp but I could be wrong on that.

There is always the option of aftermarket tuning boxes which are available for TFSi engines, but obviously on a new car I understand people's reluctance to use them, I had one on my GTD and it pushed it close to 220bhp which transformed the car to be honest! Only took it off to let the engine run normal for a month or so before I sell it ready for my Q2.

Just my thoughts, Ben

I have the 1.4 tsi 150ps engine in my current Mk7 Golf DSG and it's a great engine and will work well in the Q2.
I think they may also use this engine in the Q3 and I particularly like the cylinder deactivation with mpg of between 45-50mpg in mainly town driving. 0-62mph is @8.2sec, these figures may be a little lower in the Q2 depending on the drag coefficient 0.30cd.

Can't wait to see the car in the showroom, I'm hoping it drives well and looks as good as some of the photos indicate.
