What Car? says...
If you fancy an SUV that won't just please your rational side, but will also tug merrily away at your heartstrings, the Volkswagen T-Roc could be the car for you. Yes, it's a small SUV, but it has plenty of road presence because it's a bigger car than many of the models it competes with: cars such as the Seat Arona and Kia Stonic, and also, weirdly, the in-house competition. Yes, Volkswagen offers two small SUVs, the second being the smaller T-Cross.
And it's not just its size that puts it at odds with those rivals. You see, the smaller Arona and Stonic tend to rival the cheaper end of the T-Roc range. The more expensive versions of the T-Roc, though, with their more powerful engines, four-wheel drive and fancier trims, push into the premium-badge territory of Audi’s Q2 and Mini's Countryman. And then there's the ultra-quick T-Roc R sports SUV that’s absolutely rapid; we've written about it in a separate review, so click the link to discover more about that.
Now, if the T-Roc’s betwixt and between theme is all a bit confusing, then you have even more reason to click through our detailed, five-page review. You'll find all the information you could possibly want, including how it compares with the competition, but also which engine and trim we think are the best buys in the T-Roc range. When you've clicked through and are fully up to speed, don't forget to check out our New Car Buying pages; there you’ll discover no-hassle deals on the T-Roc and nearly every other new car on sale.
