Hi guys, i have a 2.5 102 t4 and find it goes really well, but im thinking of changing to a t5, but, it looks like i can only afford a 1.9 in the sort of spec i want!!!
what does to engine compare like, as the 1.9 is 104ps which is actually more power than mine!!
any feedback would be great:ILU:

I've got no experience of the 2.5 T4, mine is a 2.4, but when the T5's first came out I test drove a 1.9 (104) at the local dealers. I thought it had great power compared to my 2.4. When talking to the dealer afterwards, I asked him how the 1.9 T5 compared to the 2.5 T4 and he claimed the new 1.9 was better than the 2.5 T4.

does anyone know if the t5 is 4 or 5 cylinders as this would probably affect the torque!!??

The 1.9 in the T5 is a 4 cylinder (same engine as a Golf)

I have a few T4 2.5TDI 102hp , and also driven T5 1.9 105hp , but the T4 drives better than the T5 . It feels like the 2.5 T4 is also faster than the 1.9 T5 . The T5 is also a lot heavyer than the T4 .
I prefer the T4 ! ("There is no substitute for cubic inches !")
