Review

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

get the best price

Adds 17in alloy wheels, front and rear centre armrests, a leather steering wheel and gear knob, rear reading lights, front and rear parking sensors, power-folding door mirrors, a ski hatch and adaptive cruise control. The infotainment system is upgraded to include Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone mirroring.

The 148bhp 2.0 TDI 150 has great mid-range oomph that makes it ideal for towing and it'll hit 0-62mph in 8.8sec. Officially it will also average nearly 60mpg and it's RDE2 compliant, so you don't pay the 4% company car tax diesel surcharge.
