Broad choice of engines, but avoid DSG autos

The standard T5 engine choice is relatively simple. Pre-2009 the T5 was offered with a four-cylinder 1.9 TDI with 84PS or 102PS, alongside a five-cylinder 2.5-litre unit with 131PS or 174PS. After the facelift, it’s simpler still as there’s a single 2.0-litre TDI, though it is offered with a choice of outputs and transmissions from a 84PS to a BiTDI 180PS. 

Volkswagen DSG automatics aren’t without problems in the long term though. Volkswagen has recalled DSG equipped T5 models to replace the synthetic oil with mineral oil. The manuals are a safer bet long term.
