Review

If you avoid the pricier trims and engines, the Volkswagen T-Roc is a fine buy. Its soft ride makes it one of the most comfortable cars in the class, while its spacious interior and big boot will appeal to families. Also, its high-set driving position is just what SUV buyers crave – and something many other small SUVs fail to deliver.

get the best price

Comes with most of the entry-level Active trim’s standard features but misses out on built-in sat nav, heated front seats and the electric tailgate. Design trim adds styling enhancements, such as privacy glass, interior ambient lighting, sportier bumpers with silver trim and a body-coloured dashboard, all of which will help to increase resale values.

The 113bhp 2.0 TDI 115 has solid pace, hitting 0-62mph in 10.4sec. Officially it will also average nearly 60mpg and it's RDE2 compliant, so you don't pay the 4% company car tax diesel surcharge.
