The Volkswagen T-Roc R blends the decent practicality of the regular T-Roc with bombastic performance and stunning agility. It’s a lot more fun than similarly priced rivals, so one of the best sports SUVs on sale.

Pros
Thrilling handling
Strong and flexible engine
Well equipped

Cons
Cheap-feeling interior
Some road noise
Not the roomiest
