The best large SUvs

For many people, large SUVs have replaced big saloons as the ultimate expression of modern motoring, and they make great family cars, thanks to their spacious and practical interiors.

The very best are well equipped and good to drive, too, with surprisingly decent fuel efficiency. Here we count down our top 10 and name the models that are best avoided.

The best large SUVs

10. Hyundai Santa Fe

Hyundai’s largest SUV offers rugged, go-anywhere ability and a usefully lofty driving position. It also has seven seats, plenty of equipment and a powerful yet economical diesel engine. It’s not the last word in refinement, though.

9. Ford Edge

The Edge had been on sale in the US for a while, but it only came to the UK in 2016. It’s good value for money and even the cheapest trim level comes with a decent amount of kit. It doesn’t have the most powerful engine, though, and there’s no seven-seat option.

8. Kia Sorento

The Kia Sorento comes with seven seats and, unlike many rivals, its third row is spacious enough for adults, not just children. It also has a punchy engine, heavy towing capacity and comfortable ride, but the very best competitors are cheaper and more refined.

Our pick 2.2 CRDi KX-2
