Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

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:

The SEAT Tarraco is attractive and pleasant to drive but only its style sets it apart.

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

By:

It doesn’t really do sharp handling, it’s not quite big enough to match the best in class for practicality, nor does it come with seven seats. Yet don’t overlook the C5 Aircross if those limitations don’t worry you, because it has a lot of other things going for it; its ride is superb on most roads, it cruises along supremely quietly, it has a reasonable purchase price and very reasonable running costs.

Pros
Mostly a super-smooth ride
Quiet inside at speed
Frugal engines

Cons
Wallowy handling
No seven-seat option
Question marks of Citroën's reliability

By:

The C5 Aircross is Citroen's (late) leap onto the family-crossover bandwagon.A plug-in hybrid arrives early in 2020. The big draw with that one will be better fuel economy for commuting, and lower tax. Interestingly Citroen elected to make its PHEV front-drive only to keep the price down. Whereas Peugeot, which sells 3008s at a higher price, went for a more expensive PHEV system with 4WD via an extra rear-mounted motor.

Pros
Very comfortable in all sorts of ways.
Looks different.
No sporty pretence

Cons
No sporty actuality.
Ride not as consistent as billed.
Occasionally irritating screen system

Pros
