If you avoid the pricier trims and engines, the Volkswagen T-Roc is a fine buy. We think the entry level trim and engine are the sweet spot, because not only is it refined and spacious, but it's also one of the most comfortable cars in the class.

The second step on the T-Roc trim ladder is Style. It gets everything the entry-level version comes with but adds larger 17in alloy wheels, automatic headlights with adaptive high beam, a larger 10.25in digital driver display, upgraded seats and a larger 8.0in touchscreen infotainment system with added built-in sat-nav.

Reserved for the Style and R-Line trim levels, the most powerful T-Roc engine (outside of the hot T-Roc R) is this 187bhp 2.0-litre petrol engine. Boasting a 0-62mph sprint time of just 6.8sec, it’s no slouch and even beats the top-spec Audi Q2 Vorsprung 35 TFSI S Tronic’s time over the same sprint. It also comes with VW’s 4Motion four-wheel drive system, so you’ll have added confidence when the weather turns wet or icy. It’ll set you back a fair bit more than our chosen engine though, and that version is dynamic enough, so it’s hard for us to recommend it.
