The turbo is too small and light and the engine designed to reduce lag. They don’t give a ‘kick’ like old 80s turbos did, you’ll only ever really get lag if you try and pull away at low rpm in 2nd gear, and wait while it picks up.
They’re designed to feel more like a larger engine. Try driving a 1.4 mito without a turbo and you’ll soon realise how much more grunt the turbo is adding.
I have a poorly 1.4 Mito in the family.
The story is...my lads Mito went into the garage to have a scan on the engine warning light.
The garage diagnosed a failed head gasket amonst other things.
Attempting to replace the head gasket revealed a warped block.

I’ve been pulling my hair out for hours trying to find direct comparisons between the auto and manual of the mito QV.
I’m looking into buying a 2014 QV although it is an auto and through auto trader it says it has less Torque than the equivalent manuals and is 0.5 of a second slower to 60.
I am currently in the purchase of a 2014 mito QV and love it, it has a great spec but only downfall is it is an automatic. Just asking are the automatics fine in these cars or is it still best to stick to a good old Manual.
