Review

The Volkswagen Tiguan offers generous space for occupants, plenty of storage room and a big boot. It's far more than just a big box on wheels, though; its plush interior, cosseting ride and frugal engines make it a fantastic car for covering big distances in. Its Audi Q3, BMW X1 and Volvo XC40 premium rivals are just slightly better finished, though.

get the best price

A luxury-oriented trim that’s a big jump up from Life. Still, you get plenty of extra toys including 19in wheels, a heated steering wheel, an electric tailgate, keyless entry, ambient LED lighting, blindspot monitoring, a panoramic sunroof and semi-autonomous driving tech.

This 1.5-litre turbocharged petrol engine needs working a bit harder than the diesels, but is cheaper to buy and offers similar outright performance to the 2.0 TDI 150. Our pick.
