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.

Features a driving mode button, 18in alloy wheels, sports seats, in-built navigation system, 10.3in Virtual Cockpit (a digital screen that replaces analogue instruments) and LED headlights. We’d avoid this because it’s too expensive and the larger alloys hurt the ride.

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.
