I see it's actually available on the configurator now costing around 3k more than the manual 1.5 R line (only available with DSG which is 1.5k more anyway) and 1.5k more than the 1.5 R line with the DSG.
definitely better value than the 2 litre petrol version ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿ˜

My opinion is, I'd have it because it comes in handy at some stage during most winters even if its only used occasionally.

Given the waiting time for any 1.5 tsi dsg it is likely that climate change will have eliminated the need for 4wd before you'd get your hands on one, unless it is for desert conditions.

I on the other hand, I would've bought a 2.0 TSI instantly, if it had no 4 motion - I have absolutely no need for it and I see it as a useless gimmick.

What a load of rubbish...

I've had 4WD since 2011 and agree it does have its uses. They come into their own on the occasions we have snow. It's also the peace of mind in heavy rain. Not to mention when I go clay shooting. I took a punt with 2WD with the T-Roc as I was offered such a great deal on the showroom model that was very highly spec'd or wait many months for a 4WD factory order that would cost a lot more to buy and run.

There's always the winter tyre route which are supposed to be amazing for snow. People like KwikFit will supply/fit and store your normal tyres. I've seen 2WD cars with snow tyres go places that 4WD SUV's get stuck in with standards.

You can actually drive into any turn, and feel a difference with even a slight lower suspension and a tighter setup - doesn't feel like a ferry in high seas. It does however comes at a price of less comfort. But I guess that is rubbish as well.
