The T-Cross is exactly what many Small SUV buyers are looking for. It’s very comfortable and easy to drive, without feeling like a wallowy barge for those that like a car to entertain. It’s very roomy for its size, yet small enough that it’s easy to handle in town, and is competitive on running costs — whether you’re a company car driver or a private buyer. In short, it’s the best all-round Small SUV you can buy.

Trim: SEL

Adds quite a lot of niceties that are worth having, such as front and rear parking sensors, LED headlights, online infotainment connectivity, dual-zone climate control and privacy glass, but the hike in price is enough to make you think twice.

Engine: 1.0 TSI 115

This 114bhp three-cylinder turbocharged petrol feels more than a match for the Kia Stonic 1.0 T-GDI. It pulls well from just below 2000rpm and revs to its limiter with plenty of vim. You’ll not find it wanting, whether you’re getting up to speed on the motorway or lining up to overtake along a country road.
