7. Volvo XC90

The original Volvo XC90 was on sale for more than a decade, and even at the end of its life it was still a very practical seven-seater. The good news is that the new model is just as capable and a hell of a lot classier. Indeed, interior quality rivals the premium German manufacturers, and if you pick the right engine and trim combination you’ll be getting one of the best large SUVs on sale today.

6. Ford Galaxy

Order a taxi to take you to the airport, and chances are a Ford Galaxy will turn up, but there’s a reason for that: its combination of low running costs and brilliant seating flexibility make it a very practical choice. For a tall car, the handling is superb, too, so when it's just you on board, you can have a lot of fun driving it.

5. Land Rover Discovery Sport

The Discovery Sport sits below the full-sized Discovery in the Land Rover range, but still offers seven seats – something that makes it stand out from its key rivals, the Audi Q5 and BMW X3. In addition, all versions have a comfortable interior and are relaxing to drive. And by the standards of upmarket SUVs, the Discovery Sport isn’t overly expensive.
