Review

Stick to the cheaper trims and engines and the Volkswagen T-Roc is a fine buy. Its soft ride, spacious interior and big boot will appeal to families, while 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-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.
