Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

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

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

The 2019 Nissan Kicks’ expressive styling masks its economy-car bones.

Pros
Intriguing style
Standard automatic emergency braking
Decent fuel economy
Good space utilization inside

Cons
Cheap bits show through
Tiring highway cruiser
Styling not for everyone
Higher price this year

Nissan hasn't changed anything on its smallest crossover for 2019. The Kicks was all-new for 2018 and replaced the quirky Juke.

Pros
Wonderfully efficient powertrain,
Costco-size cargo space,
charming design.

Cons
Slow in our testing,
driver-assistance features limited to the basics,
warranty is nothing special.

By:

It's slightly less powerful than last year.The 2019 Nissan Kicks comes with front wheel drive. Available transmissions include: continuously variable-speed automatic.

Pros
High fuel economy estimates
Larger-than-average cargo capacity
Inexpensive compared to rivals

Cons
Leisurely acceleration
All-wheel drive isn't available
Missing a few desirable features
