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.

The flagship 187bhp 2.0-litre petrol comes as standard with the automatic ‘box and four-wheel drive. The former shifts gears quickly and the latter offers added traction in geasy conditions. It's certainly a strong performer but seems rather like overkill when the other two options are so effective. The price hike also makes it too rich for our blood.
