The VW T-Roc was introduced last August, becoming the fourth vehicle in the Volkswagen SUV lineup. Slotting in a niche just below the Tiguan in size, the T-Roc sits somewhere between the Nissan Qashqai and Juke in terms of its size, and is Volkswagen’s entry into the hotly-contested compact SUV segment.
Prices for the Volkswagen T-Roc start at £18,950, which will get you a manual SE-spec car with VW’s 1.0 TSI petrol engine, front wheel drive and 115PS.
The model I tested was the top-of-the-range SE-L, which features a 2.0 TSI petrol engine with an output of 190PS (187hp). That power reaches the wheels via Volkswagen’s 7-speed DSG automatic gearbox and is transmitted to all four wheels using 4Motion all-wheel-drive.
