Review

The Volkswagen Tiguan offers generous space for its occupants and a big boot. It's far more than just a big box on wheels, though; its fine driving manners make it a great car to own. The closely related Skoda Karoq is better value for money, though, while the Volvo XC40 has a more upmarket interior.

This entry-level engine is fine in the smaller Golf, but the heavier Tiguan benefits from a bit more oomph. Go for the 1.5 TSI 150 if you can.
