Engine options for the Volkswagen T-Roc compact SUV now number five following the addition of a new 1.6-litre diesel unit.

The turbocharged engine offers 115hp alongside 250Nm of torque and will be available with a six-speed manual transmission, exclusively in front-wheel-drive versions of the T-Roc. All-wheel-drive variants will be supplied with the 2.0 unit of 150hp and 340Nm.

Volkswagen adds that the new engine returns CO2 emissions of 115g/km, under the new WLTP testing regime.

T-Rocs with the new unit start from £21,290, which buys the car in S trim. Standard equipment includes an eight-inch colour touchscreen and Volkswagen’s Composition Media infotainment system. This includes DAB radio and unusually in today’s market a CD player, while two mobile devices can be simultaneously paired with the system.

All T-Rocs also include the Front Assist safety aid, which encompasses autonomous emergency braking – the car gained a five-star maximum Euro NCAP safety rating. Halogen clear headlights with separate LED daytime running lights, dual-zone electronic climate control and electrically heated and adjustable door mirrors are also standard.

T-Roc prices start from £18,995, which buys a car in S trim with the 1.0-litre 115hp petrol engine.
