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:

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 BMW X2 is the stylish and sporty sibling to the X1. It sacrifices some utility for its looks and drivability.

Pros
Fun to drive
Good base powertrain
Higher-power M35i version this year
Rear head room isn’t completely compromised

Cons
Expensive in top trims
Apple CarPlay requires a spend-up subscription
Dour interior
Past success on X4 and X6 didn’t trickle down

By:

The 2019 BMW X2 SUV comes with front wheel drive, and all wheel drive. Available transmissions include: 8-speed shiftable automatic.

Pros
Unique styling differentiates the X2 from the more traditional X1
Materials quality and build quality are top-notch

Cons
Costs more than the nearly identical X1 crossover
Less rear headroom and cargo space than the X1

By: 
edmunds.com
