The proverb ìFrom tiny acorns, mighty oak trees growî is quite apt in the case of the T-Roc diesel. When the SUV arrived in UK showrooms a little under 18 months ago, there was just one 2.0-litre 4Motion edition in R-Line trim. But over the course of time, the range has grown larger and larger until there are now 13 different versions. The 1.6-litre TDI engine that we test here was announced mid-way through last year, but got caught up in the WLTP emissions complications, and itís only now that weíve been able to put an example through its paces. But this isnít the last of the new models, as a Cabriolet version of the T-Roc is due soon, designed to give buyers something different and fresh.
