In 25d spec, the F-Pace remains a very good large SUV. Its sweet handling is matched only by the likes of the Porsche Macan, while few rivals can outclass its space and practicality. Our main reservation is that rivals such as the Audi Q5 still feel far classier inside.

However, while the 25d is a worthy addition to the range, it isn't our pick. Its CO2 emissions are too close to the V6 diesel's for it to make more sense to company car drivers (the lesser 20d 180 remains the best bet in that respect) while its greater noise and vibration means we'd still steer private buyers toward the smoother six-cylinder.

Consider, too, that the V6 diesel doesn't cost much more to buy, emit much more CO2 or officially use much more fuel; so, the range-topping diesel stays our overall favourite.
