Choosing between the Kia Seltos GTX DCT and the VW T-Roc

31st Jul 2020 8:00 am

I am looking to replace by VW Polo GT. Which of the two SUVs should I choose?

I have sold my old VW Polo GT and want to buy a new car? Which one should I go for in between the Kia Seltos GTX Plus with a 7-speed DCT and the VW T-Roc?

Between the VW T-Roc and the Seltos GTX Plus, the T-Roc is a far nicer car to drive. It’s got a brilliant 1.5 turbo-petrol engine mated to a smooth, 7-speed DSG gearbox which, quite honestly, is leagues ahead of the Seltos’ 1.4 turbo- petrol and 7-speed DCT. The T-Roc’s ride and handling is much better too. The T-Roc is much more expensive, though, and not as well-equipped as the Seltos. Also, in terms of space, it the T-Roc is very cramped at the back. However, for sheer driving pleasure, the T-Roc is the one to pick, if you can stretch your budget.
