Volkswagen T-Roc, Seat Arona and Citroen C3 Aircross

If you're in the market for a small SUV, you're probably familiar with the Nissan Juke. It's the car that kicked off the small SUV market, and it remains a popular choice among UK buyers.

Where once Nissan had this market practically to itself, though, these days it's overflowing with competition, and three of the newest competitors are the CitroΓ«n C3 Aircross, Seat Arona and Volkswagen T-Roc.

We've written full 16-point reviews on all three cars, but this is the first time that we've had them all in the same place for a group test. All three bring something different to the small SUV formula: the C3 Aircross offers the quirky styling that made the CitroΓ«n C4 Cactus such a success, the Arona majors on practicality and value for money and the T-Roc aims to inject a bit of premium quality into this market.

So, which of these small SUV contenders should you buy? Let reviews editor Will Nightingale and new cars editor Rory White help you decide.
