Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2020 Volkswagen T-Roc Cabriolet is a drop-top version of the company’s subcompact crossover. Launches two years after the coupe regular version, the 2020 T-Roc Cabriolet isn’t just a T-Roc with a soft-top, it also features only two doors instead of four. What’s more, the soft-top has a sleeker design, so the Cabriolet looks sportier than its standard sibling. Inspired by the Nissan Murano CrossCabriolet and the Range Rover Evoque Convertible, the 2020 T-Roc Cabriolet is Volkswagen’s only small convertible to date after the discontinuation of the Beetle.

Volkswagen has unveiled its drop-top T-Roc Cabriolet, which it's billing as the only mainstream crossover with a proper convertible roof.
Based on the T-Roc SUV, the company's drop-top crossover follows in the footsteps of the soft-top Range Rover Evoque and Nissan Murano CrossCabriolet by blending wind-in-your-hair thrills with the taller ride popular with buyers at the moment.
Although it bears the T-Roc name, the Cabriolet isn't just a normal T-Roc SUV with the roof prised off. It's actually 34mm longer than the hardtop with a 37mm longer wheelbase, while front seat occupants sit 599mm above the road – which Volkswagen says ensures they "enjoy a great view".

PROS
Traditional SUV attributes with wind-in-the-hair fun
Marks a return of convertibles to VW’s line-up
Trims start with well-equipped Design
It certainly makes a statement...

CONS
Less practical than the five-door T-Roc SUV
Cabriolet quite a bit pricier, too
Reduced engine range with no diesel
Handling becomes a bit wobbly

This is the all-new Renault Koleos, a name you might remember from when the French carmaker tried its hand at SUVs before they became truly fashionable. That one was pulled from sale in the UK back in 2010 due to slow sales (and the fact it was a bit rubbish).New Renault Koleos majors on passenger space and isn’t a bad drive either
It seems to be second-time lucky for the Koleos: with its smaller siblings – the Captur and Kadjar – both performing well, Renault hopes that this larger model further boost its fortunes.

Pros
Passenger space,
standard equipment,
driving refinement

Cons
Only offered as a five-seater,
no auto for smaller engine

By:

The Koleos is stylish and well equipped, but it’s not as spacious or as well made as some of its rivals.

Pros
Well equipped
Nicely finished inside
Lots of safety kit

Cons
Lumpy ride
No seven-seat option
Limited boot space

The exterior changes of this Renault Koleos 2020 with very subtle. Aesthetically there is not a big jump although this facelift will arrive with some changes, especially in the front with new Pure Vision LED headlights available throughout the range and a newly designed lower area of ​​the bumpers and fog lights, an area that also changes slightly In the back. A series of touch-ups with which you want to offer a somewhat more elegant image and also offering the SUV's more off-road appearance . Updates in this exterior section are completed with a new Vintage Red metallic color and two-tone alloy wheels.
The interior is also updated with improved softer feel materials , revised inserts and rear seats that receive a reclining backrest in two stages. The R-Link2 infotainment system has also been improved by adding integration with Apple CarPlay that can be accessed through 7 or 8.7-inch touchscreens . In the safety section, you receive a new automatic emergency braking system with pedestrian detection.
