Siddhu, I doubt they will plonk this in the Polo and Jetta as this engine is really complicated and moreover at the limit. It must be a very expensive engine with heavy reinforcements to put out 170bhp from a 1.4L engine.

It may not be that much of a tank. But it'll be very delicate, with both kind of FI, FSI and God knows what else technical wizardry that is going on. It probably is very sensitive to fuel and air quality too. Who is going to service it? The dealers will probably want to replace the engine wholesale when a spark plug goes wrong.

Narry,

The seat of the pants feeling you get of power in a car depends on how usable the power is. I do not know your subaru but if all the power was available only at very high revs or in a very narrow power band then it will not feel powerful for normal driving.

I agree the skoda feels more powerful than its 160bhp.

I drive the skoda superb 1.8 TSI (also 160 bhp) and i feel it is because of its excellent drivetrain and gearing. My superb has a 7 speed gearbox so it keeps the engine in its sweet spot for much longer.

Even the new Laura petrol model has 'TSI' inscribed on its rear----not sure if it is the same 1.8 L engine of the Superb however.

It is the same engine. The gearbox is different though.
