If you avoid the pricier trims and engines, the Volkswagen T-Roc is a fine buy. We think the entry level trim and engine are the sweet spot, because not only is it refined and spacious, but it's also one of the most comfortable cars in the class.

If you fancy a bit more vim and vigour – or maybe you carry lots of passengers and luggage – it's well worth looking at the 148bhp 1.5 TSI 150. This is noticeably quicker than the 1.0-litre, cutting around two seconds off its 0-62mph time, while providing more overtaking opportunities with less stress and fewer gear changes. Also, it brings the option of a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox. You cannot have that with the 1.0 TSI 110.
