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:

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:

2.0 TDI

The 148bhp 2.0-litre diesel is also pricey, but it does pull well from low revs and, as it comes with standard four-wheel drive as well, we can see the appeal if you regularly tow a caravan.
