Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The Ford Focus stands out as the best driver’s car in the class, with handling that truly entertains. It's complemented by a fine ride that almost matches a Volkswagen Golf for comfort and passenger space very nearly on a par with the Skoda Octavia. It's mainly the iffy interior quality and slightly lacklustre performance that mark it down.

Pros
Class-leading handling
Supple ride
Roomy rear seats

Cons
Mediocre performance
Golf is better equipped
Octavia has a much bigger boot

By: 
whatcar.com

Pros
Appealing looks
Value for money
Still great to drive

CONS
No electrified versions
1.0-litre petrol can feel strained
Seating position won't satisfy everyone

By:

T-Cross offers just enough over a Polo to make it worth thinking about.

Pros
Spacious and agreeable to drive
Different to a Polo,
Refined enough

Cons
Less refined and more expensive than the car it’s based on.
Low quality interior

The VW T-Cross is a compact yet roomy SUV which comes with loads of standard equipment. It doesn’t look as dramatic or feel quite as comfortable as some alternatives.

Pros
Big boot
Lots of passenger space
Loads of standard equipment

Cons
Noisy at speed
Materials feel a bit cheap
Alternatives look more exciting

By:

The Volkswagen T-Cross is one of the class leaders in the small SUV sector.

PROS

Spacious
Well-equipped
Desirable badge

CONS

Expensive top models
Quicker rivals
No hybrid model
