Review

Stick to the cheaper trims and engines and the Volkswagen T-Roc is a fine buy. Its soft ride, spacious interior and big boot will appeal to families, while 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 this – the cheapest engine – is the one to go for. With 113bhp and a turbocharger it packs a relatively mighty punch, with good pace (0-62mph in a whisker over 10sec) when you rev it out and enough low-down shove to make it flexible – even at motorway speeds. Of its rivals, only the Ford Puma offers more oomph for similar money. We also managed an average test economy of 42.3mpg, which is pretty decent.
