The Volkswagen 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: 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

Don’t write off the entry-level 94bhp 1.0-litre. If your driving is centred mainly around town it serves up enough performance at low revs to see you cleanly away from the traffic lights. It’s just a bit breathless at higher revs so you need to work it quite hard to get it to 70mph. Once there it’ll cruise happily enough, though.
