What alternatives should I consider to a used Volkswagen Touareg 4x4?

The Audi Q7 has long been a favourite of ours, because it just simply covers all the bases far better than any other luxury SUV. Its interior is a triumph, its refinement is top notch and its fuel economy is surprisingly good considering it’s such a hefty beast.

If you’re after a premium SUV and are prepared to buy something a little older, take a look at a Porsche Cayenne. The previous-generation Cayenne is quick, very luxurious and surprisingly good to drive given its height and bulk. Plus, it has the prestige of the Porsche badge.
