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

Features a driving mode button, 18in alloy wheels, sports seats, in-built navigation system, 10.3in Active Info Display (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 flagship 187bhp 2.0-litre petrol comes as standard with the automatic ‘box and four-wheel drive. The former shifts gears quickly and the latter offers added traction in greasy conditions. It's certainly a strong performer but seems rather like overkill when the cheaper petrol options are so effective. The price hike also makes it too rich for our blood.
