Introduction

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 not least because it's a slightly bigger car than many of the cars it competes with.

And it's not just its size that puts it at odds with those rivals. You see, the smaller Seat Arona and Ford Puma 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 the Audi Q2 and Mini 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 learn more about that.

Now, if the Volkswagen 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, including Volkswagen's own slightly smaller T-Cross, but also which engines and trims we think are the best buys in the T-Roc range.

When you're 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 just about every other new car on sale.
