Some rivals are more practical and better to drive, but the Mercedes GLE has a dazzling interior, and on air suspension, is a comfortable cruiser.

Engine: GLE 53 4Matic+ Prem +

With an official 0-62mph time of just 5.3 seconds, the GLE 53 feels appropriately brisk. It also gets a sports exhaust that sounds delightfully tuneful when accelerating hard; with snaps, crackles and pops when you let off the accelerator. That said, it never quite has the effortless pace of the grunty 400d diesel.
