Coming back to the topic, VW is really gung ho about small capacity blown petrols to replace larger NA engines. I believe its offering the Passat with a 1.4...yes 1.4 turbo.

Blow all the way
I believe blown small capacity engines are the way to go. Look at this year's International Engine Awards. 8 categories out of total 13 were swept by blown engines including the overall Engine of the year. Porsche has successfully implemented twin VGTs on a performance petrol motor- making turbo lag on petrols a thing of past. Same goes for the 1.4-litre VW TSI- supercharger and turbocharger implemented on a single motor- which cancels out inherent disadvantages of both these approaches of forced induction. Efficient forced induction is surely the way to go for the future internal combustion engines.

Re: With rising fuel prices, are small capacity blown petrol engines the way forward?
A welcome move if it happens, and petrol vehicles will still be in demand!!
"The government on Tuesday said that prices of petrol and other fuel could be lowered if global crude prices continue to slip further.
A fall in crude prices would also help the government bring down its subsidy bill on fuel which would help curb the fiscal deficit. The government has projected the fiscal deficit at 4.6 per cent of for 2011-12"
"Speaking on the decline, Petroleum Minister S. Jaipal Reddy also said that if the prices fall any further it will be passed on to the consumers."
