If you don’t plan to leave the Tarmac, the Jeep Wrangler is not the car for you – a Land Rover Defender is much more comfortable and refined. However, if you're looking for the best off-roader around, the Wrangler Rubicon is where we'd point you. With off-road goodies such as standard-fit knobbly tyres, three differential locks and a detachable anti-roll bar, it will go places that stop a Defender in its tracks.

Go for range-topping Rubicon trim, and you get off-road tyres (BF Goodrich T/A KM2s), three-locking differentials and a detachable front anti-roll bar. All of this turns the Wrangler into the most capable off-roader currently on sale.

While V6, V8 and plug-in hybrid versions of the Wrangler are sold in some other markets, in the UK the only option is a 268bhp 2.0-litre turbocharged petrol. This is punchy enough to deliver a 0-62mph time of just 7.2 seconds, although it likes a drink, struggling to return much more than 20mpg in the real world.
