The Tarraco's starting price is a lot more expensive than that of the Citroën C5 Aircross, Mazda CX-5 and Skoda Kodiaq, and roughly the same as the Peugeot 5008's. It's competitively equipped, though (see below for more on that). The trouble is it's also predicted to depreciate a bit quicker than some rivals, including all of the above – the CX-5, by the way, has some of the best resale values in the large SUV class.
That may mean it's not always the most competitive on PCP finance, but that also depends on what finance deals are available at the time – check out deals pages to make sure.
We reckon it’s only worth upgrading to SE Technology trim if you must have in-built sat-nav and a bigger infotainment screen (see the infotainment section for more details) because its only other additions are privacy glass and 18in alloy wheels.
FR trim has some nice additions including keyless entry, adaptive cruise control and a powered tailgate to go with the sporty styling additions, as well as electrically operated sports seats; it's worth thinking about if you don't mind a slightly firmer ride brought about by its bigger 19in alloy wheels. Any trim above that will have most of the equipment bases covered, but will also be quite expensive.
