7. Land Rover Discovery Sport

A former Large SUV of the Year, the Land Rover Discovery Sport sits below the full-size Discovery in the Land Rover range. However, it's still available with seven seats, has a smart and user-friendly interior and holds its value well. It's even well priced by class standards and was recently updated to make it more efficient.

Pick of the range: 2.0D 180 HSE 4WD auto

Skoda Kodiaq

This is the largest SUV Skoda makes, and is a comfortable choice with a smart and practical interior. Just bear in mind that you have to be careful when speccing it because it's easy to push the price north of £30k if you start adding options, at which point it makes less sense.

Pick of the range: 2.0 TDI 150 SE

5. Honda CR-V Hybrid

The latest version of Honda's large SUV doesn't come with any diesel engines – instead, you can choose from a 1.5-litre petrol model or a 2.0-litre hybrid. It's the latter that we recommend, for its low real-world running costs and impressive refinement. The CR-V also offers a comfortable driving position and vast rear space.
