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.

Despite being the entry-level trim, Life gives you plenty of equipment. You get 18in alloy wheels, three-zone climate control, cruise control, front and rear parking sensors, automatic LED headlights, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, electronically folding and heated wing mirrors, digital dials, an 8in touchscreen infotainment system with DAB radio, Bluetooth, Apple CarPlay/Android Auto smartphone mirroring and built-in sat-nav, adjustable lumbar support and drawers under the front seats.

The 2.0 TDI diesel offers 148bhp and is all that most people will need, offering plenty of low down shove and a good balance between economy and performance. You can have the 2.0 TDI 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.
