The Range Rover offers a wonderful interior which is as luxurious as it is practical, a fabulously comfortable ride, brilliant levels of refinement, and is the undisputed off-road king in the luxury SUV class. The plug-in hybrids are fantastic options and really stand out with their hugely impressive electric ranges, but even the entry-level D300 is a great choice. Still, no matter which version you go for, it’s very expensive to buy and Land Rover’s poor reliability record is a concern.

This entry-level trim is very well equipped, and it’s the trim we’d stick with. You get a plush leather interior with wood veneers and luxuriously thick carpets, 20-way electrically adjustable seats, along with 21in alloys as standard (they can be swapped for 20in alloys for no cost). Adaptive cruise control with steering assist comes as standard.

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.
