What is the story with the 1.4 Volkswagen Passats TSI? I know it has 120hp but is it suitable for such a big automobile?
Are they economical? Can they overtake without labouring??
I am still shopping around myself and have just come across these, they seem good value, I do about 12,000 kilometres per year.
Any information is welcome.

Yes we have driven the 120hp 1.4-litre TSI in the Passat and we are just heading off to drive the new one in Barcelona as we write this. Believe it or not, this engine copes quite well with the Passat's bulk. It is by no means a rocket and doesn't really have the torque of the diesel models, but it certainly copes quite well. 0-100km/h takes 10.5 seconds and the top speed is 203km/h. Fuel economy is 8.6 l/100km and CO2 emissions are 157g/km.
Is there anything else you'd like to know?Answered by: changagoidem Adviser
