    If they could just do something about the turbo lag at lower speeds. I found the power deliver in low stop-and-go driving to be sort of awkward, with nothing off the line and then a surge around 2200 RPM right when I didn't need it anymore because I would run into the car in front of me. I don't remember feeling that way nearly as much in stuff with Ford's 1.6 ecoboost.

    What huisj said was exactly my experience test-driving the 1.4T - it was awful in city driving, and the stick was terrible, too. The 2.0 automatic was much more pleasant to drive.
