Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The name sounds odd, but the Touareg offers a comfortable ride and spirited performance—something we all can understand. Its 3.6-liter V-6 makes 280 hp and is mated to an eight-speed automatic and all-wheel drive. The Touareg is large, comfortable, and solid—plus it’s equally at home both on and off the pavement. A standard touchscreen infotainment display is functional but dated; the optional adaptive cruise control and automated emergency braking, however, are well engineered and effective.

PROS
Comfortable, tech-laden interior
Active safety functions
3.5 tonne towing, real off-road ability
Ride on standard air suspension

CONS
No seven-seat option
Lacks a full-size spare tyre
Expensive for a Volkswagen

By:

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
