The Defender is a rugged SUV that fuses fantastic off-road ability with decent on-road manners. If that's the blend of abilities you're after, it's effectively in a class of one. There is also, handily, a version for everyone, with three bodystyles so you can anything from five to eight seats.

Defender HSE is only slightly more expensive than SE but adds 14-way electronically adjustable seats with memory function, heating and cooling, adaptive cruise control, panoramic roof and electronic steering wheel adjustment.
The engineSee full engine specs
This straight-six diesel has 296bhp and more than enough low-down pull for effortless in-gear acceleration (on or off-road). It'll do 0-62mph in as little as 6.7sec, depending on whether you go for the 90 or the 110. It's also pretty smooth and quiet, and comes with an excellent eight-speed automatic gearbox. The downsides are 25-30mpg in the real world and the top-rate company car tax band.
