Practical for five people, luggage space is plentiful and it's good value in the lower trim levels, but in terms of interior quality and ride comfort the Touareg lags behind its rivals.

SEL trim gets plenty of equipment including 19in alloy wheels, LED headlights, dual-zone climate control, leather seats, which in the front are heated with adjustable lumbar support, a 9.2in touchscreen infotainment screen, a DAB radio, sat-nav, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, adaptive cruise control, ambient interior lighting, a rear-seat armrest, power-folding door mirrors, auto lights and wipers, an auto-dimming rear-view mirror, front and rear parking sensors, lane-keeping assistance, traffic sign recognition, a driver attention alert, and automatic emergency braking. Add air suspension and a couple of other choice options and it’s all you need.

Stylish, refined and a seriously appealing SUV
The Land Rover Discovery is hugely capable and very desirable...
Comfy and well built but hardly exciting
The RX is comfortable and well equipped, but it's not as good...
