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: S

Entry-level S trim is pretty basic. The highlights are 16in alloy wheels, air-conditioning, electric windows, front seat lumbar and height adjustment, an 8.0in touchscreen, DAB radio and Bluetooth. Safety features include automatic emergency braking and lane-keeping assistance. We’d suggest a step up to SE if you can.

Engine: 1.0 TSI

The entry-level petrol (badged 1.0 TSI 95) is all you'll probably need. It serves up enough performance from low revs to avoid you having to thrash the engine, and you don't even miss the absence of a sixth gear.
