It's worth it ;). Well, it gives the car more nature, since it's looking
so sporty, why couldn't it be sporty also. Also, the 1.6 FSI lacks
somewhat power, because of the FSI's nature to change mode during the
drive (depending on acceleration, revs etc) and it can be a bit
unresponsive at times. There's no such problem with 2,0 FSI and also the
6th gear is too heavy for 1,6 FSI.
Take them both for a test drive and you'll end up to 2,0 FSI ;) (and,
there's double exhaust pipes with 2,0 ;))
I'd totally agree with Michael here. I've had a 1.6 FSI for a couple of
months, and acceleration is a little unresponsive just as he suggests.
Where I am, the price difference is about 2500 Euro between the two, so
that's why I went with the 1.6.. I should have checked out the 2.0 FSI
instead in hindsight as it would have been worth it.
However.. we're expecting our first child in a few months, so might look at
the A3 Avant (5 door) that seems to be arriving sometime in the near future,
for convenience (baby seat etc). Will have a chance to jump to 2.0 FSI
then. Certainly won't be quite as sporty looking as the 3 door A3, but
that's a discussion for another post. ;)
