hi, I came from Italy and I'll buy an Eos. I don't know if 1,4 tsi, with 200Nm torque from 1500 to 4000 rpm, is enough for Eos, or is a 2,0 tfsi better? Can someone can help me? Have someone a 1,4 Eos driven?

Hi enzo
Well,I think that the 1.4tsi engine is not very suitable for eos.The car weights 1500kg ant this engine is very small for it.You will exhaust it in no time.

Enzo, the 2.0 TFSI is an incredible power plant, even spread of torque (280Nm) across the rev range, plenty of pulling power and great for overtaking. Plus it is a very smooth quiet engine and flexible engine. The fuel economy is great, on the [email protected] 110 khr I can 7.2 l per 100k and around the city I am currently getting just over 9.0 l per 100k. I totally agree with versaceto in regards to the 1.4 but I must admit I haven't driven a 1.4 and it is not even available in Australia.

You will die with only 200 nm of torque. I test drove a couple of small cars with around 200 nm and they were dogs. I purchased a TDI with 320 nm of torque from 1750 RPM, better than the petrol for mid rev overtaking.

I also drive my wife's TDI Golf and I cannot agree that it is better than the 2.0 TFSI for overtaking. The TDI Golf is great, but the TFSI Eos is even greater!

dannydutton,
You would have noted that I said in mid-speed range.
From school physics days
Power = torque x angular speed
With all things being the same (gearboxes and diff ratios), the more torque an engine outputs, the more power it has. Diesels torque drops as the revs rise whereas the petrol has a flat torque curve out to 5000 RPM. Without seeing the actual curves I guess is the diesel and petrol cross over (power and torque) around 4000 RPM. I would like to see some real live tests for overtaking times (time to accelerate from from 80 to 110 kms/hr).
The petrol would be faster as long as the revs were kept over 4000 RPM.

The 1.4 TSI is similar in performance to the old 1.6 FSI. I think you should pose the question to 1.6 FSI owners and see how they like the car's performance. Personally, I don't think it can be that bad, or they wouldn't have brought it out!

This would be a total no-brainer for me. It's quicker to get out and walk than drive an Eos with only a 1.4 even if it does have a turbo.

I need power!

Have a look at the thread http://www.vweosclub.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1166
The roadtest I mentioned in that thread was one of the things that convinced me to buy a 1.4TSI and I have been very pleased with it so far. I haven't done 500 miles yet so the engine is not yet run-in but the performance seems perfectly adequate and very smooth.

Doesn't the 1.4 TSI have two pumps (turbo and supercharger) and pump out 160 bhp. They even put it in the Tiguan, and my Golf cab with said engine was no slouch IMHO.
