Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The C5 Aircross is Citroen's (late) leap onto the family-crossover bandwagon.

Pros
Very comfortable in all sorts of ways.
Looks different.
No sporty pretence

Cons
No sporty actuality.
Ride not as consistent as billed.
Occasionally irritating screen system

The Citroen C5 Aircross packs plenty of space and lots of tech into a stylish and comfortable package, but the infotainment systems in alternatives are easier to use.

Pros
Eye-catching looks
Big boot
Comfortable to drive

Cons
Some low-rent interior bits
Awkward infotainment system
No four-wheel-drive option

The T-Roc may be among the most significant of many new Volkswagen models, even if it won’t be sold in the United States in the foreseeable future. It’s a new crossover that is roughly the same size as the Golf and is based on the same MQB architecture. For now, at least, the Golf will remain the mainstay of the brand’s lineup, but those within the company who are concerned with sales-growth rates are far more interested in the crossover-SUV segment nearly everywhere on the globe.

Pros
Golf-like driving dynamics,
decent packaging,
adventurous design (for VW).

Cons
Only average interior quality,
firm ride,
we likely won’t get it.

The T-Roc is a small family car that blends the high driving position and big boot of an SUV with the economical engines from a conventional small car. It is quite expensive, however…

Pros
More comfortable than alternatives
Well equipped as standard
Decent range of engines

Cons
Cheap-feeling interior plastics
Alternatives are cheaper
Back seats could be more spacious

The Volkswagen T-Roc looks good, drives well and offers plenty of space, but it's pricey and some rivals have a nicer interior.

Pros
Easy to personalise
Good to drive
Stylish

Cons
Expensive
Interior quality issues
Rivals offer better value
