Costs & verdict

Everyday costs, plus how reliable and safe it is

The T-Roc R has a higher list price than its Audi SQ2 and Cupra Ateca sisters, but the differences are tiny after you’ve factored in the discounts that are available through our New Car Buying service, and the T-Roc R holds its value well.

Standard equipment is pretty generous, too, with a list that includes 19in alloy wheels, dual-zone climate control, ambient interior lighting and adaptive cruise control.

Overview

The Volkswagen T-Roc R blends the decent practicality of the regular T-Roc with bombastic performance and stunning agility. It’s a lot more fun than similarly priced rivals, so one of the best sports SUVs on sale.

  • Thrilling handling
  • Strong and flexible engine
  • Well equipped
  • Cheap-feeling interior
  • Some road noise
  • Not the roomiest
