Has anyone experienced the new Vauxhall biturbo diesel engine? I was struck by the performance similarities between the TT tdi and the new Astra GTC Biturbo, in terms of acceleration, top speed and fuel economy. The two cars weigh the same but the biturbo produces 195 bhp and superior torque figures. I assume that the way the TT puts the power down through 4 wheels gives it the very slight edge.

Probably no prospect of a similar ( biturbo) 2 litre engine from VAG whilst the 177bhp engine is new and likely to feature in the mk 3.

Is it the same engine that was used in the SAAB? If so it's a very good engine indeed, although I'm pretty sure ours was only 180bhp. The power delivery is very linear, no big torque hump like the standard TT.
