What we are looking for

  • Space. Not the final frontier, but a more accessible kind: the interior of an SUV. This is the Large SUV category, after all, so we want as much space as possible.
  • Why? Well, because if you have a big family, you need a big car to cart around the kids and all their paraphernalia. In the past, that meant going for an MPV, but in today’s style-conscious world, something with a little je ne sais quoi is also important.
  • But while it needs to be big enough to carry a new fridge home on occasion, this is still a car you’ll have to drive every day, so it needs to be comfortable and easy to drive, with a calm ride, tidy handling and a lofty driving position with easy-to-use controls.
