Not much love for the 2.0?

I guess I'm the only pessimist in this thread. The 2.0 Elite (?) loaner I had for a day just didn't justify what it would cost to own one, imo. It's definitely peppy (once you pass the turbo lag) and handles nicely, but I think you'd get a better bang for your buck elsewhere.

Not even close !
C&D's long term 2.0T tester shows 0-60 in 5.8s:


i'm not saying that's 'fast', but that's the latest data i've seen. i like to use C&D as a baseline when comparing published data since i've been a subscriber for a long time. so i feel they give me an apples-to-apples data set, even if most owners cannot match them.


Been here awhile...
I love my 2.0! For me it's not about how fast my car is from 0 to 60. It's about how athletic it is on my favorite curvy backroads. My G70 doesn't FEEL slow when it's making me grin from ear to ear.
Exactly how I feel. I want a car that takes the curves and handles great.
I can care less about 4, 5 or 6 second 0-60 times.

I’ll give a good example. Back in 1970, I special ordered a ‘Cuda 340. Powerful small block engine. Much faster on curvy roads vice the heavy 383, 440 or Hemi. In hindsight, wish I had bought the ‘Cuda 340 AAR. (All American Racer).. Ahhh, hindsight.

I have the 2.0, also. I preferred the better MPG over the power. Higher MPG is usable every day but I don't always need all the extra power.

I'm looking forward to the 2.5. The better MPG AND more power! Bring it.

I was planning on buying my G70 at the end of the lease but with the 2.5 coming I might reconsider....

I'm really interested in seeing how the new 2.5 turns out. If it's like the 3.5, it will also both direct and port injection. I bet you could make a ton of power out of that little guy, plus it would be light weight... I love the power of my 3.3 right now, but i can't help but wonder if the 2.5 would be the better platform.

2.0T here too! These are first world country issues where people are complaining about a $38K+ car with 0-60 times... We are fortunate to drive such cars considering that a lot of people cannot afford one. I am grateful I have one and don't mind being slower than a 3.3TT brother.
Well said!
