The Volvo XC60 looks and feels classy inside, plus it's also roomy and well equipped. In short, it's a fine choice. The Audi Q5 is a better all-rounder, though, while the BMW X3 and Porsche Macan are more fun to drive.

Range-topping Ultimate trim gets matrix LED headlights, 20in alloy wheels, adaptive dampers, air suspension, a head-up display, a powered passenger’s seat, power-folding rear headrests and a panoramic roof.

Exclusive to Ultimate trim, the T8 has 449bhp and a sub-five second 0-62mph time, making this XC60 remarkably rapid. With an official electric-only range of around 48 miles, it should also prove frugal to run as long as you keep it plugged in regularly.
