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

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

By:

The 2018 Subaru Crosstrek is all-new for 2018. It rides on a new chassis, gets an upgraded version of the previous engine, and features a more refined cabin design with additional features.

Pros
Precisely tuned suspension delivers sharp handling and a comfortable ride quality
Spacious interior for a hatchback of its size
Offers optional safety features not typically found in the class
High ground clearance for enhanced off-road capability

CONS
Lower EPA mileage numbers compared to other cars in its class
Slow acceleration on the highway

By: 
edmunds.com

The 2018 Subaru Crosstrek ranked #8 in Subcompact SUVs. Currently the Subaru Crosstrek has a score of 7.8 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 27 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Exceptional rear-seat space for the class
Generous cargo room
Quiet and fuel-efficient CVT
Athletic handling

Cons
Slow to accelerate
Terrible gas mileage with manual transmission

By: 
usnews.com

The Crosstrek’s standard all-wheel drive and 8.7 inches of ground clearance set the stage for adventure. Acceleration is unhurried from a 152-hp 2.0-liter flat-four paired with either a six-speed manual or a continuously variable automatic.

Pros
Adventurous aesthetic,
solid road manners,
genuine off-pavement potential.

Cons
Slow and unrefined powertrain,
uninspired interior,
questionable value.
