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.

This adds 17in alloys, adaptive cruise control, automatic wipers, front fog lights, a front centre armrest, height-adjustable boot floor, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone integration and a leather steering wheel and gear knob. Options worth considering include the Winter Pack, which adds heated front seats and heated washer jets, and keyless entry.


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.
