Review

Go for the 1.0 TSI 95 SE model and you'll have bought a very fine small SUV for a sensible price. But if you want a more powerful engine or a posher trim level, we'd recommend you look at the T-Roc – it's only slightly more expensive and is a more sophisticated car in most important areas.

Trim: SEL

SEL adds further creature comforts, including dual-zone climate control and tinted windows, but the hike in price is too great.

Engine: 1.0 TSI 115

As well as an extra gear, the 1.0 TSI 115 offers slightly faster acceleration than the 1.0 TSI 95, but the difference isn't huge so we'd be tempted to save the money.
