I'm finding it very difficult to decide which model to choose. It's down to either the diesel or the 1.4 (can't quite stretch to the 2.0TSI - tax is way higher on it than the others in Ireland).

The diesel would definitely be cheaper in the long run, but the 1.4 wouldn't break the bank or anything and it might be more fun. Has anybody here driven either model, or ideally both, and can give their opinion?

i'd go for the 1.4 more in keeping with the character of the car if fuel bills etc are not the main driver

That was my thinking alright. It's very frustrating that there is no GT option for the 1.4 though! Especially considering it's more powerful and faster than the diesel, for which there is a GT option.

Plan to try both before I buy. Prefer petrol to diesel but do wonder about the long-term reliability of a technically brilliant but complex small engine (supercharger + turbocharger)?
