looks like the 168bhp 2.0 TDI is the engine to go for

But of course. Initially there will be only the 148bhp TSI and the 138bhp TDI units. The TSI unit is a 1.4-litre with a supercharger and a turbocharged, and bests the Rav4?s 2.0-litre petrol?s 143lb ft with 177lb ft from 1750 to 4000rpm. Early next year, two new 2.0-litre TSI powerplants will be added, as well as a 168bhp 2.0-litre TDI. Our test car was the 138bhp diesel with 236lb ft from 1750rpm to 2500rpm. It?s now common-rail as opposed to VW?s old pump-duse item, and is thus quieter and cleaner. But throttle response isn?t as instant and it misses the old sledgehammer oomph that made previous TDIs such fun. If you hang on for the higher power diesel just remember that you can?t have it with the six-speed auto

Yep. It's funny that SEAT have launched the Freetrack4 with both of the most powerful engines (170ps diesel & 200ps petrol)and no lower powered options. The opposite to VW
