Volkswagen T-Roc

(2017 - present)

The Volkswagen T-Roc is a compact SUV/crossover that sits between the larger Tiguan and smaller T-Cross in the Volkswagen SUV family. It was unveiled in the summer of 2017 with the first cars arriving in the UK by Christmas the same year.

There is a high-performance model called the T-Roc R, and a convertible version of the T-Roc was announced in the summer of 2019. We do not have review data for either of these models yet, but will add them both as soon as we do.

The Volkswagen T-Roc has received generally positive reviews from the UK motoring media, with an overall Expert Rating that is very competitive in its market segment. The T-Roc has received particular praise for its comfort and overall refinement. However, it has been criticised for not maintaining the same sort of interior quality that the rest of the Volkswagen range offers, while top-spec models are relatively expensive compared to its rivals.
