Hi guys.
Buying a golf this week. Budget of 10k.

Very confused. On 1 hand diesels are going out of fashion and being targeted for higher taxes but the 1.4 tsi is £110 road tax while the 1.6 is free and 2.0 is £20.

With the TSI you dont get DPF and EGR faults but apart from that what the the benefits of the petrol over the diesel? Looking at 2014-2015 mk7.
Will.appreciate any tips and is it worth paying the extra £1000 for the 1.4 tsi over the 1.6 tdi

Depends on mileage mostly. If ur gonna do the miles then diesel. If ur not and want to be future proof then petrol

Smoother engine the 1.4TSI is as well. It's also pretty efficient with no diesel rattle. No troubles in matching manufacturer claims on mpg if driven carefully either.
