ProScan is the SW I hear about the most, then it is a matter of how much you want to pay for a scan tool.

What kind of testing do you have in mind?

For example, I would use a compression tester to check cylinder compression, but I would would use a gas analyser to check combustion efficiency, and tracking gauges to test the steering alignment...

The point is, different automotive mechanical subsystems require different equipment, approaches, and techniques, and as far as I know, there is no "big machine" that will effectively give you an "all about everything" printout of a vehicle that is processed by it.

If you look in any garage or service centre there is an array of specialised equipment designed to do particular jobs; if there was a device that could replace them all why would such places invest in the specialist stuff?
Even electronic diagnostic equipment isn't quite the magic bullet that it's often presented as being - it can be spectacularly wrong in what it reports, as well as astonishingly accurate.

The closest thing to a universal tool that I've come across is a large hammer - you can hit anything with it!

You ask for large & extensive testing.
The best testing requires Chassis dynamometers & Engine dynometers.

Chassis dynamometers & Engine dynometers test every moving part for performance only.
OBD diagnostics can give more info. on faults if they exist on your car.
