The Range Rover has a road presence few cars can equal, along with an upmarket interior and a largely comfortable ride. The plug-in hybrid versions make great sense for company car drivers, while the entry-level D300 is the best bet if you're buying privately. Still, whichever version you go for, the Range Rover is hugely expensive and Land Rover's reliability record is a big concern.

Stepping up to HSE gets you 22in alloys, a head-up display, heated and ventilated rear seats, and a rear-view mirror that turns into a camera screen to show the view out of the back of the car. You can only have it in standard wheelbase form.

Our favourite engine is the D300. It's a 3.0-litre mild-hybrid straight-six diesel with 296bhp. It's smooth, super torquey so it pulls effortlessly, but when you stretch its legs and rev it out it makes haste with 0-62mph in just 6.9sec. It's fit for purpose whether you're cruising motorways, overtaking along A-roads or towing up to 3500kg. It should average in the region of 35mpg on a run if driven sensibly (less than that around town). It's also worth noting that a BMW X7 40d is quicker and will cost you less.
