The Volkswagen Tiguan Allspace has all the positive traits of the five-seat Tiguan but adds a bigger boot and two extra seats. It’s expensive, though, so we’d stick with the standard Tiguan unless you need seven seats.

If you want your Tiguan Allspace with the most luxury possible, Elegance is the one for you. That trim comes with all the Life trim toys but adds 19in alloy wheels, matrix LED headlights, a panoramic sunroof, keyless entry, a rear-view camera, heated front seats, heated rear seats, independent rear climate control, heated windscreen washer jets, a heated steering wheel and wireless smartphone-charging.

The entry-level 1.5 TSI 150 petrol engine offers 148bhp and sprints from 0-62mph in 10.3sec. You have to rev it quite hard to get the best out of it, but it’ll easily get up to motorway speeds and offers sufficient performance for pretty much any situation. You can have the 1.5 TSI 150 with either a DSG automatic or a manual gearbox. The automatic changes gears smoothly but can be hesitant when you pull off or need a sudden burst of power.
