An Audi Q5 might be more comfortable, but a X3 superb driving experience and spacious, high-quality interior makes it one of the very best large SUVs to buy. And if you want to combine those elements with a serious turn of pace, the M40i is one of the best performance SUVs around.

Trim: SE

Entry-level trim comes with luxuries such as climate control, a powered tailgate, sat-nav, cruise control and heated leather seats, so there’s no need to spend any extra.

Engine: xDrive30d

The 261bhp 3.0-litre straight-six diesel model is a relaxing car and would be our pick over the hot M40i. It certainly makes more financial sense for the majority of people and it’s not far behind the M40i in a sprint.
