Tribute to sport-utility vehicles

Sport-utility vehicles rule and Torque pays tribute to this unlikely hero segment in its July issue.

If it is a full-size SUV you want, check out the new Volkswagen Touareg.

Slightly smaller and somewhat less pricey is the Kodiaq, the first SUV from Volkswagen-owned Czech brand Skoda.

City-friendlier 2-litre choices come in the form of the Volvo XC60 T5 and Lexus NX300. Find out how they compare.

Moving down the budget totem pole, two 1.2-litre road tax-friendly crossovers - the Peugeot 3008 and Opel Grandland X - go head to head.

Even further down, three one-litre variants are lined up in Torque's traditional group test. Find out how the Hyundai Kona and Seat Arona fare against the parallel-imported MG ZS.

Torque, out at newsstands now.
