The Discovery blends workhorse ability, executive refinement, and a versatile cabin. It has a great image, too. It's also our 2011 4x4 of the Year winner.

4 Hyundai Santa Fe
What Car? says


The Santa Fe is a cracking family 4x4. It's not perfect, but at this price and with a five-year warranty, you can't really go wrong.

5 BMW X5
What Car? says


Brilliant to drive on the road, and pretty good off it, too. Economy is impressive if you choose our favourite model, the 3.0d SE.

8 Lexus RX450h
What Car? says


Who said 4x4s can't be green? Low CO2, cheap running costs and plenty of comfort produce a car that should help keep Lexus at the top of the JD Power customer satisfaction rating.

9 Land Rover Freelander
What Car? says


A classy and desirable 4x4 that’s very capable off-road. It’s just a shame it’s not more spacious.

10 Volkswagen Touareg

The Touareg is a decent all-rounder, but Land Rover’s Discovery is more comfortable and practical.
