Land Rover Discovery Sport 2.0 TD4 180 SE Tech auto

This version of the Land Rover Discovery Sport is our 2016 Large SUV of the Year. Its engine is smooth, gutsy and efficient, plus you get seven seats and strong resale values. True, the ride can be a little bumpy around town if you swap the standard 18in wheels for one of the bigger options, but the Discovery Sport is a comfortable motorway cruiser.

Euro NCAP scores:

  • Adult occupant protection 93%
  • Child occupant protection 83%
  • Pedestrian protection 69%

  • Adult occupant protection 93%
  • Child occupant protection 86%

Volkswagen Passat GTE

It might look like any other Passat, aside from the blue trim running through its front lights and grille, but the Passat GTE is actually a plug-in hybrid that can travel up to 30 miles on electric power alone. It's available as a saloon and an estate and is a great option for company car drivers.

Euro NCAP scores:

  • Adult occupant protection 85%
  • Child occupant protection 87%
  • Pedestrian protection 66%
