Volkswagen is continuing to dip more hands into the SUV pie with its recently launched T-Roc. It's slightly bigger than a T-Cross and slightly smaller than a Tiguan. We spent some time behind the wheel to get a feel for the new model.

South Africans are flocking to SUVs and crossovers en masse and the reality is that brands simply can't afford not to offer a variety of SUVs to potential customers. The T-Roc is the latest SUV to join the Volkswagen line up and sits between the smaller T-Cross and the larger Tiguan in the VW stable.
But as Ciro De Siena finds out, the T-Roc is quite a unique offering. Built on Golf underpinnings with the same 2-litre motor found in the GTI, what exactly is the T-Roc trying to be? It's not as practical as the family-friendly Tiguan and it's arguably not as practical as the smaller T-Cross.
In this video we take a look at the newcomer and try to work out who should buy this car and why. We cover the interior, specs and pricing, tech features, boot space and engine power.
Let us know what you think of the all-new T-Roc.
