Parkers overall rating: 3.5 out of 5 3.5
  • Some compromises due to convertible roof
  • Still quite a reasonable boot
  • Less interior space too

As well as the roof, the four-door model has lost two doors, the practicality of a rear hatchback, 161 litres of loadspace and the middle rear seat.

At the same time it has gained some 40mm in wheelbase length, a more steeply raked windscreen, and a multi-layer fabric roof structure that opens in only nine seconds and closes in 11, all the touch of a button at speeds of up to 19mph.

Loadspace has suffered, but nothing like to the extent one encounters in folding tin lid offerings.

2020 VW T-Roc Cabriolet boot

The size of the maw you have to feed has certainly been reduced through the replacement of a hatchback with what is effectively a boot lid, but the volume available within still seems adequate, especially given there's a hatch in the rear seat for the penetration of longer items.

Safety

  • No Euro NCAP safety rating
  • SUV was given five stars, though
  • Lots of driver assistance tech

The VW T-Roc Convertible specifically hasn't been tested by Euro NCAP, although the SUV has, and that got the full five stars.

There is some good news though, being available in Design trim as standard means you get lots of safety kit, including:
