Have the issues with 1.5-litre petrol engines in VW cars been resolved?

I'm considering buying a brand new Volkswagen T-Roc 1.5 Evo petrol manual, but upon reading about the kangarooing when the engine is cold, it's got me nervous. Has this problem really been solved as regards to a new vehicle?

Based on the most recent reports we've received about the 1.5-litre engine in VW Group cars, the issues don't appear fully resolved.
