If I am not wrong, 1.4 TSI is very much there in the newly launched Octavia. Please check.

Also check with VW dealers for some left over stock of 1.4 TSIs. You might be lucky.

You mean Skoda Octavia right? VW had a 1.4TSi in India?

I’m confused between vento tsi and rapid tdi dsg. My average monthly run is around 2300-2500 kms. Due to horrible service with my VW polo, my heart goes with skoda. But rapid doesn’t have a tsi!

Go for the Rapid DSG, it will please your eyes and pocket too. It is highly fuel efficient and one of the best automatics in its segment.

Go for the Rapid TDI DSG. It’s a wonderful engine mated to an awesome DSG. I think all those issues with the DQ200 gearbox have been sorted out by VW. Hopefully! Plus on Rapid, Skoda offers a better interior than in Vento and more stylish exterior IMHO.

Default Re: Which VW Vento DSG - TDI or TSI?

I did test drive of both TSI and TDI DSG on Sunday. One Vento and other Rapid. Both drives were about 10 km long on highway. Somehow I felt Vento TSI pulled better compared Rapid.

I had put the same question on one of the other thread earlier. I am looking for a car that will give some kind of push in the seat feeling. In this aspect, I feel TSI is better compared to TDI. This time I tried both the cars in sport mode and with pedal to the floor mode. TDI had the pull but the TSI exceeded it. I am clueless how 175 Nm is better than 250 Nm.

My running is around 1000 k per month so diesel per se doesn't make big economic sense. But in the looks department, Rapid fared better than Vento hence the dilemma.

After two years and 9000 kilometres with a Vento TSI. Here's what I have to say.

1. The TSI shines only when its driven with a heavy right foot. Under normal circumstances the driving experience is almost the same as the TDI. Yes the TSI is a bit more faster but the rush could be because of the engine that's revving higher & quicker along with a sweeter note. It's fun but you're (probably) not going to be doing kickdowns all the time.
2. The engine will feel a little strained when the car is fully loaded (5 people + luggage). Not a deal breaker but you'll miss the extra torque of the TDI here.
3. TDI offers great mileage. TSI is a drinker if you play with it. Trust me you'll want to play a lot! Not much of an issue since your monthly usage isn't much.

Its very much a head vs heart decision here and you can't go wrong with both these cars. If this is going to be your only car/primary car then I'd say you go for the TDI just because its a more sensible and VFM choice. If you can sacrifice some of that sensibility for a mod friendly, angry little engine and a load of fun then TSI is the way to go.

Cheers!

Go for the TSi. There is a huge difference between how a petrol engine and a diesel engine revs. See, the only reason that some diesel cars are somewhat fun to drive is that their petrol counterparts are punny 1.2L N.A. engines, tuned to extract most F.E. eg. Ford Aspire, VW Ameo, Honda WRV and many many more.
Here, this is not the case anymore. The TSi is an state of the art machine. It combined with the DSG is just so much fun and stress free on those long drives at the same time.
Both these engines are capable of doing much more than what VW has tuned them to. Get it remapped and the performance will be unmatched.
Only if your running was high, like 1500+ KMs, the diesel would make sense. Yes, it will fetch you like 50k to 1L more when reselling but that will be perhaps 7-8 years from now. That amount is like nothing in true financial sense and it doesn't make sense to compromise on your ownership and driving experience for 7-8 years, does it?

Default Re: Which VW Vento DSG - TDI or TSI?

Hi, just wanted to ask you guys if this is the right time to go for a Vento TSI. My dad wants to exchange his old Vento petrol manual for a TSI. He just loved the present car. He has had no issues or niggles except for regular maintenance. His average running is well below 7000 kms a year so a diesel would make no sense.
But I am scared with just the two airbags in the Vento and no amount of coaxing would make him even look at the Yaris . My main queries being
1. Will the Rapid make sense in the TDI+DSG avatar (because it has 4 airbags)
2. I've been hearing that Polo and Vento both may undergo a slight refresh. Any chance Volkswagen will give it 4 airbags ? Should we wait ? Or just buy it in Jan with discounts ? I just can't take a decision. Any input is welcome.
Thank you in advance.

Vento with 4 airbags has already been launched/announced. Its only available in the top trim- Highline Plus. Just check if the dealer has it or can get it from plant.

Thank you so much ! I never knew ! And the SA we contacted didn't even mention this. This makes the decision making so much simple. We were planning on getting the HL plus version too. Thanks again !
