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.

The Tiguan R's long list of standard equipment includes 21in alloy wheels, adaptive suspension, front and rear parking sensors and a rear-view camera. Meanwhile, inside there's three-zone climate control, heated front sports seats, ambient lighting and a 9.2in touchscreen infotainment system that features wireless Apple CarPlay/Android Auto smartphone mirroring.

With its turbocharged 2.0-litre petrol engine producing a whopping 316bhp, the Tiguan R is seriously rapid, 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. Make sure you tick the box for the optional Akrapovic sports exhaust because it makes the car sound so much better.
