The interior layout, fit and finish
The Cabriolet’s interior is essentially a carbon copy of the regular T-Roc’s. This means the dashboard and centre console are logically laid out, with physical dials and buttons for the climate control for easy to operation and adjustment on the move. Still, those controls don’t feel as sturdy or well put together as those in the Mini Convertible, and you’ll find plenty of scratchy plastic surfaces across the top of the doors and dashboard.
Included on both Design and R-Line trims is Volkswagen’s crisp and intuitive 8.0in infotainment screen. It’s responsive and easy to use, with shortcut keys on either side that make it easier to jump between menus on the move. All models also get Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone mirroring included as standard.
The driver’s seat has plenty of adjustment to help you get comfortable, including for lumbar support, although electric adjustment isn’t available. Naturally, being based on an SUV, you get a raised driving position for a far more commanding view forwards than you'll find in the low-slung Mini.
