Volkswagen T-Roc hatchback front space
It’s unlikely that anyone will get into the front of the T-Roc and find they don’t have enough room. Not only do the seats slide back a long way, they drop low enough to give those long in the body plenty of head room. As for width, you certainly won’t be clashing elbows with the person next to you.
The T-Roc also offers a large centre cubby that can be upgraded to feature wireless phone-charging. Plus, you get wide door pockets and additional storage under the front armrest. All in all, it beats the Audi Q2 and Mini Countryman on front space, although the latter’s driver’s seat does slide back a little farther – handy if you have really long legs.
Volkswagen T-Roc hatchback rear space
Although rear head room in the T-Roc is decent (assuming you haven’t opted for a panoramic roof), leg room is less impressive. It matches the mechanically similar Q2, but it is nowhere near the Countryman and even trails the cheaper Seat Arona.
If you’re planning to carry three in the back, the T-Roc is broader than a Q2 or Arona, but is still a bit of a squeeze for adults. As for storage space, there are pockets on the backs of the front seats and space for a can of drink in each rear door.
Volkswagen T-Roc hatchback seating flexibility
What’s more, unlike the Countryman, the T-Roc isn’t available with rear seats that slide to let you decide on a balance between rear leg room and luggage space.
Electric front seats aren't available, but driver and passenger can enjoy adjustable lumbar support for a small charge.
Volkswagen T-Roc hatchback boot space
The T-Roc’s boot is a practical, square shape, and at 445-litres (392 litres on four-wheel-drive 4Motion models) it’s slightly larger than the Q2's and the Arona's. To prove a point we fitted six carry-on suitcases in the T-Roc, which was one more than we managed to get in the Arona. If you think you’ll need more space then both the Countryman and Citroën C3 Aircross have bigger boots: we squeezed seven cases in the latter.
When raised, he standard height-adjustable boot floor that features on front-wheel drive versions minimises the tailgate load lip and flattens out the step up to the rear seats that’s created when they’re folded flat. If you opt for a four-wheel drive model there’s a tiny internal lip but no option to lower the floor.
