Range Rover

The Range Rover is a real all-rounder, providing masses of space, sumptuous luxury and serious off-road ability, too. Buyers can choose between standard-wheelbase or long-wheelbase versions, with the latter providing a little extra room in the back seats. Whichever you choose, this is a huge car and it comes with running costs to match. If you’ve got deep pockets, we’d say it's absolutely worth it, though. We reckon it sees off the challenge of rivals such as the BMW X5, Mercedes GL and Audi Q7.

The Range Rover is a pretty impressive piece of engineering, offering limousine-like comfort, style and quality. The engine line-up consists of a 3.0-litre V6 diesel, a 4.4-litre V8 diesel and a 5.0-litre supercharged V8 petrol. Really, the V6 is all you need, but it's nice to have the extra power and smoothness of the V8 diesel. Only the brave should go for the petrol V8 – it’ll drain your bank account of cash at a ferocious rate. There is a hybrid model, too, which matches the diesel V8's performance but is cheaper to run the standard V6. There's so much space on offer here that you’ll struggle to ever fill it. For a family camping trip or similar, there's no better car.
