Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The MG GS is the brand’s first SUV, built to rival the Nissan Qashqai, Renault Kadjar and Vauxhall Mokka X. The MG costs less than all those models and is also a little bigger so, in terms of value for money, it’s off to a flying start.

Pros
Decent looks
Punchy engine
Low price

Cons
Cheap feeling cabin
Firm ride
Small boot

The Tarraco is a roomy, good-looking seven-seater and probably the poshest Seat ever.

Pros
Styling,
space,
standard equipment

Cons
Oversells its sportiness,
pricier than rivals

By:

Pros
Smart looks
Enjoyable to drive
Spacious for five passengers

Cons
Feels generic
Tight third-row seats
Some safety features not standard

The SEAT Tarraco is a practical, well-equipped seven-seater SUV with a durable cabin. It’s available with a good choice of engines but it’s very similar to the Skoda Kodiaq.

Pros
Extremely practical
Good standard equipment
Excellent engine range

Cons
Plain interior
Very similar to Skoda Kodiaq
No five-seat version
