Thanks to comments and info from this forum I would also suggest insisting that your new car must be 2020 spec and demand that your sales person drive it; perhaps when fuelling it to ensure that your T -Roc is Kangaroo free before handing it over. My new T-Roc is a much better car than my bouncy 2018 version. Pretty much everything seems so much better put together.

Your comments are of huge relief to me. I had a MY19 SEL which was awful and I ultimately rejected and ordered a new one. I’m glad to hear the MY20s are much better - we hadn’t really had any feedback on the MY20 models but were hoping the lack of complaints was a good sign.

Very much looking forward to mine in mid-March. Despite my poor experience, I’ve really missed it as a whole.

I miss my T-Roc too. The option to re-order wasn’t on the table at the time because VW admitted that the new one might also be roo-afflicted. Oh well, c’est la vie.

But one day, who knows I may return back to the fold which is why I asked about the DSG elsewhere.

I really do think it’s all sorted now twist and that your new car will be absolutely fine :D .

And how works traditional DADA turbo, which haven´t wastegate? It might explain big turbolag on my DADA engine?

Those two turbo descriptions may simply only be worded differently?
I know nothing about turbos, maybe someone else can tell us :P

I think you're correct in saying that its worded differently.

All the 96kw models have the VTG turbo, which electronically controls the geometry of the turbo housing vanes to adjust the pressure, whereas all the 110kw models have the standard wastegate to limit the pressure from the turbo.
DADA engines and DPCA engines are identical, except the later one has a slightly modified cylinder head, I should imagine to improve efficiency and reduce emissions a bit more.

But the point of the variable geometry turbo is to allow boost at low rpm where much less exhaust is produced. It tightens the vanes to allow a similar pressure, thus reducing turbo lag during acceleration at low speed.

Why would they couple an inferior turbo with the more powerful engine?

Apparently it's to do with heat. The 110kW runs a lot hotter turbo than the 96kW. Maybe to hot for the reliability of the electrical actuator ?
