How much choice is too much choice? Volkswagen offers not one but three small-ish SUVs: the T-Cross, T-Roc and the new Taigo, which squeezes into a tiny gap between the other two. It’s a coupe version of the T-Cross, and both cars are based on the Volkswagen Polo. Most of the parts – whether you’re looking inside the cabin or under the bonnet – have been used in numerous VW, SEAT and Skoda models; so, while the Taigo doesn’t feel very distinctive, it’s easy to operate and should be cheap to run. But, is it the small SUV for you? Nicola puts it to the test.
