There’s a lot to like about the Seat Tarraco, namely that it’s one of the sportier seven-seaters, is generously equipped and has a very good safety rating. Some rivals have more third row and boot space though. If you do get a Tarraco, we recommend sticking with the cheapest 1.5 EcoTSI 150 petrol engine and the entry-level SE trim.
The trimSee full equipment
If you fancy something sportier this FR trim is worth a look. The black door mirrors, black roof rails, 19in alloy wheels and more aggressive bumpers take care of the looks on the outside, while sports seats and extra trim details deal with the inside, plus you get an electrically operated driver's seat with memory recall, adaptive cruise control, keyless entry, front and rear parking sensors and a powered tailgate. The bigger wheel make the ride firmer, though.

If you think you might need a bit more lugging ability – for a regularly brimmed car or to tow with – this 148bhp 2.0-litre diesel is a good shout. It isn't quite as quick as our favourite petrol flat out (0-62mph take 10.2sec) but it has more welly in the mid-range for pulling heavy loads more easily. And it's RDE2 compliant, so won't cost company car drivers the extra 4% (surcharge) in BIK tax.
