Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

As a company car proposition, the Suzuki Across stacks up well; its low emissions bring low tax bills, and its very good all-electric range and punchy performance sweeten the deal. But an extremely high list price narrows its appeal among private buyers; cheaper alternatives are better to drive, more comfortable, and nicer inside.

PROS
Low official CO2 emissions
Punchy performance
Long electric-only range

CONS
Very expensive
Poor infotainment system
Rivals are better to drive

PROS
Smooth and powerful drive
Great electric range and CO2
Practical and high-quality interior

CONS
Very expensive
Ride is a touch firm
Shorter warranty than Toyota

The VW faces an uphill struggle against brand laden rivals, but is actually just as good.

Pros
Sophisticated and high-tech interior plus engines for all situations in the pipeline

Cons
Same-price rivals wear more premium badges

By: 
topgear.com

Pros
Good value in lower trim levels
Spacious inside for up to five people
Excellent towing capabilities

Cons
Cheap-feeling interior plastics
Fussy infotainment system
No seven-seat option

The 2020 Volkswagen Touareg V8 TDI is expensive, but it also has a very special diesel V-8 under the hood.

Pros
Fast enough for the autobahn,
diesel efficiency,
premium-brand levels of luxury and refinement.

Cons
Garish chrome grille; an Alcantara headliner would be nice;
we'd love to have it here,
but it's premium-brand money.
