It is, although still no official word whether UK will get it, there are a few more trims/engines due to be released to the market soon though.

I've noticed that VW has dropped the Polo GTI temporarily, Ford has dropped the 1.5 182 from the Focus and Honda have dropped the 1.5 180 from the Civic. Appears to be a cull for certain engines, I believe manufacturers have to only have a certain % of their cars with high emissions...... anyone confirm?
 

Seriously?

New rules on CO2 emissions next year basically mean that all cars in a manufacture's range have to meet the new lower CO2 target; currently only 95% of the range have needed to comply apparently.If you're really bored and looking for something to do, read all about it here:

Maybe one of the reasons small car manufacturers are stopping 'traditional' auto models with higher emissions? Its what we want and better in our driving/manoeuvring circumstances...not semi automatic or glorifying it as Automated Manual Transmission :mad: . Its rubbish, harsh drive and there's still a clutch to wear out.

Hi, anyone know if the 190 TSI will come with 4x4. In the Octavia I understood it is only like this with 4x4. I don't mind just curious.

190BHP on a small car (even compact :) it is enough for the 4x4. But seems only Octavia and rest upwards will get it.

No its not. I have the Cupra 290 and it gets its power down no problem unless its wet and then once you are moving its fine. No need for all wheel drive with 190.

Anyway, seems that only estate version will have 4x4 with the 190 TSI engine.
I believe you if you says so. Never driven a Cupra or a car with that much power so I cannot say. In the end the 4x4 it is another complex piece of the car that could brake down :).

Would tend to disagree.

AWD is beneficial. Even at a lowly 130/150bhp traction can be lost.

at 290bhp you are going to be scrabbling wheels all over the place. Even my work van on 75bhp i can get it scrabbling at junctions:p:ROFLMAO:

No not DSG...the demise of 'traditional' torque converter automatics for an 'automated' manual (or semi-automatic).
