The interior layout, fit and finish

Driving position and dashboard

You sit relatively high in the Tarraco, looking down on people in their hatchbacks and smaller SUVs. Pull up alongside a Range Rover, though, and suddenly it'll be you that feels looked down on.

There’s plenty of adjustment to the steering wheel and the driver's seat, letting you set up everything just how you like it; even adjustable lumbar support is standard, with electric seat adjustment, including a memory function, standard from FR trim. 

Every version comes with bright LED headlights and front fog lights.

Sat nav and infotainment

An 8.3in touchscreen infotainment system with DAB radio, as well as Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone integration, is standard on all trims. The latter means you can use your smartphone apps as a sat-nav among other things, so the in-built navigation that comes with the bigger 9.3in screen (from SE Technology) isn't essential. Every version also comes with three USB-C sockets and an eight-speaker stereo.

Whatever the screen size, the system has many menus and sub-menus and these can take some learning, but it's easier to get your head around than the Citroën C5 Aircross's or Peugeot 5008's systems, and it's more responsive; there’s barely any delay once you press an icon. However, the touchscreen is more distracting to use when you’re driving than the rotary dial controller fitted to the rival Mazda CX-5.
