The Volvo XC60 is ageing gracefully and can still manage to fend off newer rivals with its roomy, upmarket interior and a well-judged ride and handling balance. In short, it's a fine choice. The Audi Q5 is an even better all-rounder, though, while the BMW X3 and Porsche Macan are more fun to drive.

Entry-level Core trim is our pick of the bunch because it gives you all the essentials and quite a bit more on top. Climate control, cruise control, automatic lights and wipers, wireless phone charging and heated leather seats all come as standard, so you only really need to add metallic paint to help out the resale values.

With 247bhp, the B5 can sprint to 62mph in 6.9sec, so it's plenty brisk enough. It comes exclusively with four-wheel drive, which is handy if you live up a slippery lane.
