    planning on buying a new 1.4tfsi sportback. Does anyone have any experience of this engine? The dealer only had the 2.0tfsi for a test drive, but keen to go for the 1.4 and spec out some options the wife wants, e.g pano roof and park pack.

    No experience myself but check out the A4 (B9) section for plenty of views and info on the 1.4

    You'd have to be mad to put a 1.4 engine in a car this size

    Why not, nothing wrong in the output as the 1.4 is a strong engine. They put 1.0l in the mondeo...

    No longevity in that engine, it's under too much strain all the time, it won't go the distance, but it will be out of warranty so Audi don't care

    What on earth are you talking about, strain? If the engine has the same output as a non-turbo 2.0l we were all happy with, if not more. There is zero strain.
    Have you actually driven a 1.4 VAG?

    I think the 1.4Tfsi is perfectly suited to my wifes needs which is primarily town driving. It's 150BHP. the 2.0tdi engine in our old C6 Avant was 140BHP and was perfectly fine!

    In any regards, it's now a moot point as I've heard from Audi uk they will be withdrawing this engine from the A5 range as it will fail the new fuel consumption tests and all 1.4tfsi orders will be replaced with the 2.0 tfsi with no additional charge. Not a bad result if that pans out...

    Isn't the 1.4 150 TFSI old technology now? I'm sure I read somewhere that engine is being phased out and replaced with a new 1.5 litre petrol with the same output. Probably in the facelift B9s coming in a year or two

    Yes that is correct, the 1.4 is being superceded by the 1.5, however there is little change in the figures...

    From what I understand (from Audi UK), there will not be a 1.4 or 1.5 Tfsi from MY19. The only petrol option (other than the S5) will be the 190bhp and 252bhp 2.0 Tfsi a. Not sure what will happen longer term with prices as the 1.4 is £2k cheaper, which helped us spec up the car (tech pack, advanced parking pack, Daytona grey, nappa leather, pano roof, privacy glass, extended LED, flat bottomed wheel)

    Wouldn't go near a 1.4 myself, the car deserves at least 2.0, it's a big old car too !

    I have experience of the 1.4 in an A4 and found it to be perfectly adequate for day to day driving. It wont set you pants on fire by any means though.
