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. It's available in three body styles so you can have anything from five to eight seats. We think the 110 model in seven-seat form makes the most sense for larger families.

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.
