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.get the best price

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.
