The Land Rover 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 body styles so you can have anything from five to eight seats.

X-Dynamic SE trim comes very well equipped, getting luxuries that include 20in alloy wheels, privacy glass, 12-way electronically adjustable seats with memory function, heating and cooling, cruise control, a heated steering wheel, air-conditioning, an 11.4in touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay/Android Auto, DAB radio and Bluetooth, blind-spot monitoring, trailer stability assist and an assisted tailgate.

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.
