Review

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. However, the cheaper Seat Arona offers better value, especially against the expensive range-topping T-Roc models.

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.

Engine: 2.0 TDI

The 148bhp 2.0-litre diesel is also pricey, but it does pull well from low revs and, as it comes with standard four-wheel drive as well, we can see the appeal if you regularly tow a caravan.
