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

Need a big Mazda SUV, but don't want petrol? The brand now has the answer - it's called the CX-8. Paul Maric checks it out.

Pros
Excellent fuel efficiency
Stacks of standard features, especially in top-specification Asaki model
Plenty of room inside for a growing family

Cons
Diesel engine can run out of breath when overtaking
Quality of 360-degree camera is very poor
Three year warranty with no roadside assistance starting to fall behind the pack
