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, although the Audi Q5 is an even better all-rounder while the BMW X3 and Porsche Macan are more fun to drive. If you do buy an XC60, we recommend Core trim with the B5 engine (or the T6 PHEV if it's a company car).

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.
