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.

Trim: R Line

Top-spec model is mostly about more aggressive styling with R-Line logos throughout, but it does add a heated windscreen and 19in alloys. The larger wheels ruin the ride and it’s far too pricey to recommend.

Engine: 1.5 TSI EVO

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.
