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.
The trimSee full equipment
Entry-level Life trim is our pick of the bunch, because it keeps costs down while also coming with plenty of standard equipment. That includes 16in alloy wheels, automatic LED headlights, automatic front windscreen wipers, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, two-zone climate control, adaptive cruise control, adjustable lumbar support, an 8.0in digital driver display and a 6.25in touchscreen infotainment system with Bluetooth, DAB radio and Apple CarPlay/Android Auto smartphone mirroring.

If the entry-level diesel’s 113bhp isn’t quite enough for you, this upgraded version comes with 148bhp and is even keener from low speeds. Official figures say that it’ll sprint from 0-62mph in 8.8sec and the additional torque means you’ll be able to tow things even easier. You can choose to have this engine with either a manual or DSG automatic gearbox, but opting for the auto box reduces the official mpg to 58mpg.
