    if its the same engine as the golf 1.4 170bhp i think they are twin charged (supercharged and turbocharged)

    at a guess tsi = turbocharged,supercharged, injection

    Yes there turbo and super charged. My friends got one in his vw scirocco. It goes really well considering it's only a 1.4.

    I believe they are identical to the new Polo GTi and new Skoda Fabia VRs, with the vw being the priciest and skoda being the cheapest and the Ibiza in the middle pricewise.
    Oh and TSi means Turbo stratified injection. The supercharger works up to about 3500 rpm at which point the exhaust gas spins the turbo into action. the supercharger is cut off by the intervention of a clutch to stop engine power being lost by having to run the 'charger whilst the turbo is doing its thing.

    It means turbo stratified injection.

    The ecu changes between running lean at light throttle/load and rich when needed.

    Thats how they get good mpg AND good power.

    Its new technology (Well new ish) and will be seen on quite a few new car's in the future. Its like when common rail injection came out for diesels.

    iirc they come with the DSG gearbox as standard, which is very good.
