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.

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.
