Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2018 Fiat 500X finishes in the bottom third of our subcompact SUV rankings. Despite its bold styling, this Fiat is less exciting and less practical than many crossover rivals.

Pros
User-friendly infotainment system
Upscale interior styling

Cons
Shorter warranty than many competitors
Very small cargo area
Jittery ride quality
Bland engines and clunky automatic transmission

By:

The 2018 Fiat 500X comes with more built-in personality than most other small SUVs, though it’s an urban warrior rather than an off-roader.

Pros
Neat, tidy lines and proportions
Ride, handling above average
More character than most small utilities

Cons
Automatic transmission can be touchy
Sunroof hurts rear head room
Far from an off-roader

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

By:

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
