The VW Touareg is practical for five people, has plenty of luggage space and is good value in the lower trim levels, but its interior quality and ride comfort lag behind rivals'. It also lacks the flexibility of seven seats. We recommend looking at the Audi Q7, BMW X5 and Land Rover Discovery as better all-round packages.get the best price

The engineSee full engine specs
This 228bhp version is the entry-level unit and is paired with an eight-speed automatic gearbox and four-wheel drive. Performance is more than adequate (0-62mph comes in 7.6sec), and it'll get up to speed or pull a caravan without much effort. It's generally quiet and should return around 37mpg on a run.
A stylish, refined and a seriously appealing SUV
The RX is comfortable and well equipped, but it's not as good...
Comfy and well built but hardly exciting
Hugely capable and very desirable, and equally at home both on...
