The VW Tiguan offers generous space for occupants, a big boot and fine driving manners, but its higher costs count against it. A Skoda Karoq is better value, while the Volvo XC40 can be had for the same cost as a mid-rung Tiguan. For private buyers, the 1.5 TSI 150 Life is the one to go for, while company car drivers will be better off with the eHybrid.

This comes with a similar level of equipment to Elegance but trades some kit (such as keyless entry and a powered tailgate) for a sportier appearance, with larger 20in wheels and more aggressive bumpers. Inside, you get sports front seats.

This higher powered version of the eTSI engine produces 148bhp and trims the 0-62mph time to 9.1 seconds. Top speed remains 130mph.
