Told by my local dealer that the 2.5 engine has been discontinued and that the 1.8T is its replacement.

It is different from the 1.8T that is in the mk4 cars. More efficient and I believe it runs on regular fuel vs. premium. And emissions are better I imagine. Despite it having a turbo, its rated higher than the 2.5 for fuel economy. I'm interested to get some seat time in one. I'd be getting the 2.0T if I got a newer VW (or a TDI), but its a neat idea for a base engine.

VW in Europe is discontinuing almost all non-turbocharged engines. The Beetle is sold with 1,2, 1,4 and 2,0 petrol turbocharged engines only.

I was just at my local vw dealer today and talked to my salesman about this. the only non-turbo motor will be the vr6 and the 1.8t will be about the same hp and 10 ft/lb torque more than the mk4 1.8t and run on 87 octane. All while getting 30+mpg.
