Review

Stick to the cheaper trims and engines and the T-Roc is a fine buy. Its soft ride and practical boot will appeal to families, while its high-set driving position is just what SUV buyers crave, and something that many other small SUVs fail to deliver. However, the cheaper Seat Arona offers better value, and those considering a range-topping model might be better off with one of the T-Roc's premium Small SUV rivals (including Audi Q2 and Mini Countryman) or a larger car from the Family SUV class (such as the Skoda Karoq and Seat Ateca).

Trim:

Design

Comes with all the SE upgrades plus styling enhancements such as a contrasting roof, windscreen pillars and door mirrors, privacy glass, sportier bumpers with silver trim and a body-coloured dashboard. It’s the one we’d go for.

If you fancy some extra vim it's worth looking at the 148bhp 1.5-litre engine. It is noticeably quicker than the 1.0-litre and cuts the 0-62mph time down by almost two seconds, but it’s the added mid-range guts than proves more useful. It makes for less stressful overtaking and fewer gearchanges in everyday driving. On which subject, while the 1.0-litre is a six-speed manual only, the 1.5-litre gives you the option of a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox as well.
