I'm considering a petrol Audi A3 saloon - is it easy to adjust to after being used to the torque of a diesel?

I've owned two diesel Audi A4 which I have been very pleased with. I'm now considering an Audi A3 saloon with the 1.4 petrol engine. I was pleasantly surprised with the performance during a short test drive but should I be aware of anything as I have got very used to the torque of a diesel engine?

It's a lovely engine, sweet at low revs and very smooth, but over the next year it will gradually be replaced by VWG's new 150PS 1.5 TSI.
