Auto Car now have a full indepth review of the T-Roc on their website here: it's rated 4.5/5 stars which is a very good result.

The T-Roc is one of countless compact crossovers introduced over the past six months, but it stands well clear of most within that melee as both something to look at and interact with.

You'll have your own view on the stylishness and desirability of this car, but to almost all of our testers, the T-Roc seems a very clever visual concoction of likeable compactness, coupé-like rakishness, SUV-like robustness and typical VW-brand smartness. To deny it credit for that here would be wrong.

Shows performance verve, dynamic completeness and stylish swagger
The T-Roc imposes a price for that style and the palatability of that price will depend, equally subjectively, on whether you need the greater occupant practicality that bigger crossovers in this segment afford.

Indeed, it's for the slightly disappointing accommodation level of its back seats, as well as for its high pricing and mixed material quality levels, that we're denying the car top spot in the crossover hatchback class.

However, the T-Roc offers a rare degree of perky performance and polished ride and handling in this niche. So class champion or not, the T-Roc is our kind of crossover.

It seems like a very sober and well organized review. Like most other reviewers, their main complaint is the hard plastic dash materiel - I suppose they had to find something not to like. Rear wheel suspension is quite different from the FWD versions - the better control for rear wheel power transfer should also improve the handling.

My 9 years experience with a Yeti with the same Haldex 4Motion system says that it too improves handling - not just in snow etc.

......but I'm maybe slightly biased - that is exactly the T-Roc I have on order.
