The V60 edges ahead of similarly-priced premium rivals thanks to its generally comfy ride, secure handling and great interior quality. And that’s before we mention how roomy it is. That's key to an estate's appeal and it's bigger on the inside than rivals such as the Audi A4 Avant. It's a great all-rounder and the plug-in hybrid T6 even has a class-leading electric range, making it a fantastic choice for company car drivers.

Range-topping Ultimate trim is too expensive to recommend, but it comes packed with luxuries such as a panoramic roof, a premium sound system by Harman Kardon, matrix LED headlights, a powered passenger seat with memory and power-folding rear headrests.

The B3 (P) is good but if you can opt for this 194bhp B4 (P), which is our pick of the range. It knocks a second off the B3’s 0-62mph time (8.0sec), it’s more energetic at motorway speeds and, having a bit more oomph suits a car designed to carry people plus luggage. It's also slightly more efficient than the B3 (P) because you have to work it less strenuously, so officially it still averages just over 40mpg.
