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?

Even the turbo is fine at 250K with proper oils.
Ahh yeah mines a manual. Shifts pretty smooth at 250K but I get a grind here or there. Clutch can be somewhat temperamental at times but has excellent feel. Id imagine an automatic not shifting like brand new either @ the quarter million mile mark. But hey thats all they give ya'll now is automatics. So I guess u have to deal with however it shifts.
