How it copes with people and clutter

Front space

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 (just not quite as far as in the Mini Countryman) and there's masses 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.

Storage space is impressive too. The T-Roc offers a large centre cubby, space under the front armrest, wide door pockets and a big glovebox. You even get a drawer under the driver's seat on all trim levels.

That said, most cars in this class don't do any of those things either, and the T-Roc does at least provide you with a ski hatch to give you a bit more loading flexibility. 

Electronically operated front seats aren't available, but, as we mentioned in the driving position section, adjustable lumbar support is an option worth adding and not especially pricey.

Boot space

The T-Roc’s boot is a practical, square shape, and, at 445 litres (392 litres in the four-wheel-drive variants), it’s slightly larger than the one in the Audi Q2 and Seat Arona
