We have a 141 diesel Passat 2.0-litre and we want to change to a petrol VW, either a Tiguan or a Passat, but the engine size in both looks underpowered. What should we do?

Simple: ignore the engine size. The 1.4 TSI turbo petrol engine has 150hp and is totally at home and happy in either the Tiguan or the Passat. In fact, it’s arguably the best choice of engine in either automobile. Thanks to compact, low-pressure turbocharging, engine size is these days more or less irrelevant. Look at the power and torque figures instead.
