With a smart interior, a wide range of engines and comfortable cruising manners, there’s plenty to like about the Mercedes GLE. The main issue is that there are rivals that are even more practical, comfortable or better to drive. The 300d makes the most sense, while company car drivers will do well with one of the PHEVs. You’ll need AMG Line Premium trim to get seven seats, otherwise we recommend Urban Edition.

This is the biggest and most powerful diesel engine available, using a 3.0-litre six-cylinder motor that produces 362bhp and 553lb ft of torque. This trims the 0-62mph time to 5.6sec and raises the top speed to 155mph.
