Costs & verdict

Everyday costs, plus how reliable and safe it is

The Volkswagen T-Roc Cabriolet carries a hefty price premium, costing thousands of pounds more than the regular T-Roc, and is available in two generously-equipped trim levels: Design and R-Line. Design comes with with dual-zone climate control, automatic lights and wipers, Bluetooth and USB connectivity. R-Line brings a sportier feel with 19in alloy wheels and styling tweaks that include restyled bumpers, and adds LED headlights and a 10.25in digital driver’s display.

Heated seats and a spare wheel cost extra, as does that useful wind deflector. Plenty of safety systems are included as standard, including lane-keeping assistance, adaptive cruise control and automatic emergency braking, which we consider vital.

Overview

The T-Roc Cabriolet will definitely find its audience in those wanting a small SUV with an extra dimension of fun and freedom, but even Volkswagen predicts it will only make up 7% of T-Roc purchases. With a lofty driving position, comfortable ride and the fact that it offers more rear-seat space than rivals, it can just about combine family living with wind-in-your-hair excitement. For real convertible thrills, though, the Mini Convertible is a much more enjoyable prospect.

  • Comfortable with roof up or down
  • Punchy, economical engines
  • Generous equipment levels
  • Only has seats for four
  • Small, impractical boot
  • Uninspiring interior quality
