Yeah, I agree that the "goodies" are what sells the i20.
But, the biggest grouse people have for the i20 petrol is that it seems to be lacking in power. While on the other hand the i20 diesel seems to have quite a bit of yet. So, I am searching for middle ground here.

Re: Where are the 1.2 liter turbocharged petrols?
Ford Europe has added a new turbocharged 3 cylinder 1.0 petrol to its range. They claim that the power output would be on par with a regular four pot 1.6 petrol, with the added fuel efficiency of a smaller motor.

Yes, there are various issues connected to blown engines, cost and reliability being the top of that list. It might make sense to introduce these engines in higher versions of small cars initially. Once the reliability is proven and a certain scale is achieved in the long run, expect these tiny blown petrols to become the norm rather than the exception.
