(Not sure if this is good for longevity, but it just feels good to me.) I'm certainly impressed - I can never get much more than 40 mpg with the 2014 Passat TDI DSG.
Same story here. My 2017 Jetta S with a 1.4 has actually been more fun to drive than my 2009 JSW TDI, and it's getting better mileage than my somewhat battered TDI. Plenty of power starting at a lower RPM than the TDI and I hardly ever get past 2500 RPM (except from time to time for maintenance purposes).
