VW T-Roc R: Why Australia misses out on the hot hatch SUV

Here’s another car to add to the list of those that won’t be heading to Australia anytime soon due to our lower-grade fuel. The Volkswagen T-Roc R is effectively a Golf R hot hatch on stilts, but Australians will have to admire it from afar because it’s potent 2.0-litre turbo engine has not been calibrated to run on our premium unleaded. Australian regulations allow up to 50 parts per million of sulphur in our unleaded petrol, but in Europe the maximum sulphur content is just 10ppm.

Volkswagen T-Roc: Small SUV forced off Australian agenda, for now

A worldwide production shortfall has forced Volkswagen Australia to take the chic little T-Roc crossover — its premium-positioned Mazda CX-3 and Toyota C-HR rival — off the agenda for the time being, though it will revisit the business case in 12 months time. It had been pencilled in for a local launch either late in 2018 or early 2019, though supply issues always made its situation for our market tenuous.
