Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

A unique turbocharged five-cylinder engine with nearly 400 horses makes the redesigned-for-2020 RS Q3 an exotic performance SUV that we can't buy.

Pros
Gutsy power delivery,
quirky five-cylinder sound,
impressively neutral handling for an SUV.

Cons
The U.S. still can't have it,
AMG and Porsche both offer more power in their competitors.

The RS Q3 might be exceedingly fast in a straight line, but it just isn’t that much fun. Numb steering and a tendency to wash wide at the front count against it, while many will find its ride a bit too firm for their liking. For this money, the Porsche Macan S feels plusher and is more enjoyable to drive, even if it isn’t as fast.

Pros
Fast
Well-equipped
Sounds good

Cons
Stiff ride
Not that much fun
Interior doesn’t feel that luxurious for a £50k SUV

By:

Pros
Punchy engine,
4WD grip,
smooth DSG gearbox

Cons
Is a fast crossover,
scratchy interior plastics,
droney noise

The Volkswagen T-Roc R blends the decent practicality of the regular T-Roc with bombastic performance and stunning agility. It’s a lot more fun than similarly priced rivals, so one of the best sports SUVs on sale.

Pros
Thrilling handling
Strong and flexible engine
Well equipped

Cons
Cheap-feeling interior
Some road noise
Not the roomiest

If you like the Golf R and don’t mind SUVs, you’ll probably like the Volkswagen T-Roc R too.

Pros
Very similar in most ways to the Golf R

Cons
No end in sight to the SUV craze
