What is it like on the inside?

In what are genuinely surprising scenes, we haven’t had too many gripes with the T-Roc R as of yet. The interior does throw up a few things, though. The plastics are hard and scratchy – and not just in the lower half of the cabin.

Slightly plusher dashboard and door card materials would have gone a long way in here, particularly as the steering wheel is leather and quite lovely. Our test car had the optional blue dash insert that you can see in the images above. At £115, it’s something to avoid.

The infotainment setup is classic VW and works well. Standard equipment is an eight-inch touchscreen that mercifully doesn’t include the climate controls – that system is still operated by actual buttons. VW’s App Connect brings with it Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility, though, and the main screen is accompanied by a 10.25-inch digital cockpit.

The cloth seats are standard R-division fare, but they’re supportive and comfy on a fairly long journey. The driving position is surprisingly low – no bad thing but we’d expected to sit higher in a crossover.
