There’s loads to like about the Hyundai Santa Fe, including its huge boot, seven-seat practicality and impressive roster of standard equipment. The regular hybrid will make more sense to most buyers, but the plug-in hybrid (PHEV) is a no-brainer if you're a company car driver. Either way, stick with Premium trim rather than Ultimate.

Even the most ardent hedonist might feel over-pampered by the Santa Fe in range-topping Ultimate form – it comes with such niceties as ventilated front seats and a panoramic roof. However, it is rather pricey. We'd stick with Premium trim.

The 'self-charging' hybrid (HEV) is nippy enough with 0-60mph taking 8.4sec in our tests. True, there's a slight delay between you pressing the accelerator pedal and the car surging forwards, but it isn't pronounced enough to really annoy.
