Review

Stick to the cheaper trims and engines and the Volkswagen T-Roc is a fine buy. Its soft ride is one of the most comfortable in the class, and its spacious interior and big boot will appeal to families. Also, its high-set driving position is just what many SUV buyers crave – and something that many other small SUVs fail to deliver.

On top of SE trim this adds black styling features inside and out, including black 18in alloy wheels, privacy glass, LED headlights and ambient lighting.

The great news is that we reckon the Volkswagen T-Roc's cheapest engine is the one to go for. It's the 1.0-litre, three-cylinder with 109bhp and might be small but, thanks to a turbocharger, it packs a relatively mighty punch and delivers some welcome zip (0-62mph takes a healthy 10.8sec) when you rev it hard. And there's enough low-down shove to make it flexible, even at motorway speeds. Of its rivals, only the Ford Puma offers more oomph for the money.
