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.get the best price

Full specification for the R has yet to be confirmed, but indications are that it will have 21in wheels, LED lights front and rear, VW’s range-topping 9.2in Discovery Pro infotainment system, Dynamic Chassis Control (DCC) and a sports steering wheel with ‘touch controls’ as standard.
The engineSee full engine specs
With its turbocharged 2.0-litre, four-cylinder petrol engine producing a whopping 316bhp, the Tiguan R is seriously rapid, capable of blasting from 0-62mph in 4.9sec. It’s pleasingly muscular, too, developing power in a nice linear fashion – the seven speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox doesn’t even have to shift up or down that often for you to make rapid progress. We’d also make sure to tick the box for the optional Akrapovic sports exhaust as it sounds fantastic, parping theatrically as you build speed.
