T-Roc sounds a bit like a hip-hop star or something, but the reality is another in the long line of compact SUVs. It’s a sector that just keeps growing, so VW figured it needed to plug a perceived gap below the mid-size Tiguan. It has that big VW grille and is based on the MQB platform, that modular unit that underpins so many VW products. That makes it sound humdrum, but the styling is anything but.
The human race is building about 95m cars every year, to add to the 1.2bn that are currently in use all over the planet. A car needs a revamp or a replacement every two or three years to stand any chance in such a congested market. But it wasn’t always like that. Back in the day a car represented a chance to be personally mobile, not dependent on public transport, and nobody grumbled if the radio didn’t have great reception (if fitted) or if the steering was a bit heavy.
Can the smaller Arona follow up on the smash-hit of the Ateca SUV? Seat was very late to the SUV party but then arrived and took the party by storm. The Ateca knocked the Nissan Qashqai off the top of the leader board, which wasn’t bad for a first effort. The question is how do you follow that? And the answer appears to be – the Arona. It’s smaller, which isn’t surprising since it’s based on the Seat Ibiza hatchback, so we know it’s not going to be a serious Land Rover competitor.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
