The Land Rover Defender is a rugged SUV that fuses fantastic off-road ability (especially if you add the optional locking rear differential) with decent on-road manners. If that's the blend of abilities you're after, it's effectively in a class of one, but the Jeep Wrangler is even better in the rough stuff, while premium SUVs, including the Audi Q5 and Q7, are more comfortable. With its bigger boot, the Defender 110 will make the most sense for many, but the 90 is usefully more compact and better off road.

Opting for XS Edition gets you matrix adaptive LED headlights, adaptive dynamics, a front centre console refrigerator compartment, 12-way electronically adjustable seats with memory function, heating and cooling, rear collision monitoring, wireless phone-charging, a ClearSight rear view mirror and an XS Edition styling pack. On the Defender 90, XS Edition also adds electronic air suspension.

The P400 is a 3.0-litre six-cylinder mild-hybrid petrol with 396bhp, and it is hot hatch-bating fast – put your foot down away from the lights and you’ll hit 62mph in as little as 6.0sec. However, with an official claimed fuel economy of around 25mpg, it won’t be cheap to run.
