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?

I sold my 3800 2002 Monte Carlo with 196,000 miles to buy my cruze. Ran out great with those miles. Good engine. Hoping the 1.4 does as well, but I don't need it that long anymore; I have a company car now, so I drove my cruze 1300 miles since I bought in July. It will stay a low mileage car.
