Durability of the 1.4 turbo engine

I know this is highly speculative, but has anyone an opinion of how long a properly maintained 1.4 turbo engine will last? At 20,000 a year, 50% highway, will it go 200,000 without major repairs? Have we any data on this yet?

Will it for example be as tough as the old 3.8 litre GM engine?

In my experience owning two series 2 L67s and one Series 1 3800 L27, I have to admit the L27 was from a reliability standpoint a superior motor.
I owned a LG2 3.8L then a LN3 3800, the LN3 was the most reliable engine I have ever owned. Very similar to the L27.
