There is a lot to like about the Seat Tarraco. It’s one of the better cars in the class to drive if you like something that feels a bit sporty, it's really generously equipped and it has a very good safety rating, if not the best in the class. But it isn’t as versatile as the very best large SUVs both in terms of space in its rear-most seats and its boot. There are cheaper alternatives, for private buyers and company car users alike.

Our favourite trim comes really well equipped with 17in alloy wheels, three-zone climate control, automatic lights and wipers, power-folding door mirrors, digital instruments, seven seats, LED headlights, metallic paint, cruise control and rear parking sensors. SE Technology adds a bigger infotainment screen and in-built sat-nav, but this trim’s 8.3in screen is big enough and, with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto standard, you can use your phone's sat-nav (Google Maps or Waze) instead.

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.
Coarse engine and laggy infotainment, but a classy interi...
Quiet, comfortable and cheap to buy and run, but there's no se...
