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

Pros
Cargo area is one of the largest in this class
For a big SUV, it rides pretty comfortably over bumps
Flexible seating arrangement allows for up to eight passengers
Respectable off-road capability for a big SUV

Cons
Even among large SUVs, fuel economy is poor
Audio controls and front central cupholders are hard to reach
The touchscreen is small and outdated

The 2020 Sequoia lineup receives several updates. The biggest addition is the new off-road-ready TRD Pro model that's outfitted with a lifted suspension and other add-ons to conquer unruly roads and trails. Also showcased on other Toyota products such as the Tacoma pickup truck and the 4Runner SUV, the TRD-tuned version is much more than just an appearance package. The rest of the Sequoia lineup also receives long-awaited infotainment features, including standard Apple CarPlay and Android Auto capability as well as a mobile hotspot.

Pros
Third row is actually comfortable, all driver assists are standard, iron-clad reliability from Toyota.

Cons
Drives like a pickup truck, worst-in-class interior quality, new tech can't hide old bones.
