    Hello Guys
    Is this engine available in the UK, can't see it for the Ibiza or the VW Polo but it's available for the Arona and T Roc..... Can anyone explain why and will it be available?

    Regards LB

    It was. Now it's not. Buy a 2017/18 one.

    Possibly because the 1.5TSI is a hugely oversubscribed engine from VW, eg...I guess they will first go VW (Golf, Passat, Tiguain, T-ROc), then Audi (A3, A4, A5, Q3, Q2), then Seat has to share the rest with Skoda, who has it in the Scala, Karooq, Kamiq. At least Seat has this engine for the Leon, Ateca, Tarraco, and some Aronas. None for the Ibiza since awhile. If it's any consolation, Polo's and Fabia don't get it either. The new Audi A1 might, not sure...

    In my home town in Singapore/Malaysia, they don't even offer the 1.5, still using the old 1.4 ACT

    I think it's because of WLTP. Each gearbox/engine combination should pass it. And that's quite costly even not taking into account that MT 1.5 will not pass declared values. This shaved options for each model a lot. It seems too little people were buying 1.5 Ibizas. A bit strange I would say, because that engine was one of the main reasons why I bought mine :).

    There was a 2019 1.5 on autotrader not so long ago. Must have been one that sat in stock or something.
