Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The Skoda Kamiq is an excellent small SUV with a spacious cabin and plenty of high-tech features that’s dead easy to drive and impressively comfortable.

Pros
Comfortable to drive
Very roomy back seats
Plenty of standard equipment

Cons
Alternatives have bigger boots…
…And are more exciting to drive
Desirable infotainment costs extra

By:

Another worthy crossover. Comfy, roomy, but not especially interesting.

Pros
Vast space,
very comfortable if you avoid the needless ‘
sports’ chassis

Cons
It’s just so derivative,
in a way the old Skoda Yeti wasn't

By:

The Skoda Kamiq is everything good about Skoda wrapped up in a desirable small SUV package.

Pros
Spacious
Huge boot
Plenty of tech

Cons
Lacks individuality
Not as desirable as a Volkswagen
Powerful petrol engine not yet available

By: 
carbuyer.co.uk

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: 
carwow.co.uk

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
