What Car? says...
If you fancy an SUV that won't just please your rational side but will also tug merrily away at your heartstrings, the Volkswagen T-Roc could be the car for you. Yes, it's a small SUV, but it has plenty of road presence, not least because it's slightly bigger than many of the cars it competes with.
And it's not just its size that puts it at odds with those rivals. You see, while the cheaper end of the T-Roc range challenges the smaller Seat Arona and Ford Puma, the pricier versions of the T-Roc, with their more powerful engines and fancier trims, push into the premium-badge territory of the Audi Q2 and Mini Countryman. And then there's the ultra-quick T-Roc R sports SUV, which is absolutely rapid; we've written about that in a separate review, so click the link if you're on the hunt for one of those.
Now, if the Volkswagen T-Roc's betwixt and between theme is all a bit confusing, you have even more reason to click through the rest of this detailed, five-page review. You'll find all the information you could possibly want, such as how it compares with the competition, including Volkswagen's own slightly smaller T-Cross, as well as our verdict on which engine and trim make the best buys in the T-Roc range.
