Passenger & boot space
How it copes with people and clutter
It’s unlikely that anyone will be sitting up front in a Volkswagen T-Roc and thinking, "I don’t have enough room". The seats slide back a long way (although not quite as far as in the Mini Countryman) and there's lots of head room.
The T-Roc is one of the wider cars in the class, so you won’t be clashing elbows with the person next to you, either.
Seat folding and flexibility
The T-Roc comes with folding rear seats as standard but they split 60/40 rather than in the more versatile 40/20/40 arrangement provided by the Q2 and Countryman. Unlike the Countryman's, the T-Roc’s rear seats don’t recline or slide to allow you to set a balance between rear leg room and luggage space.
Most other small SUVs don't do any of those things though, and the T-Roc does at least provide you with a ski hatch to give you a bit more loading flexibility.
Electrically-operated front seats are not available in the T-Roc but, as with sliding rear seats, most of its rivals don’t offer them either.
