Infiniti QX70 SUV

There is no slow Infiniti QX70 (previously Infiniti FX) in the line-up, with huge petrol and diesel engines being the order of the day. Both petrol models boast 0-62mph times under 7 seconds, with the quickest even dipping under the six second barrier. A stiff set-up means it corners well too but it's worth taking a test drive to see if the ride is soft enough to live with on a daily basis.

Vauxhall Mokka SUV

The Vauxhall Mokka is the company's answer to popular crossovers like theNissan Juke and Skoda Yeti, with raised suspension and chunky bumpers giving the impression of size to what is, in fact, a relatively small car. Buyers can choose between a 1.4-litre petrol turbo, a 1.7-litre diesel engine or an entry-level 1.6-litre S petrol model. There are three other versions, including a gadget-filled Tech Line model that comes with sat-nav and reversing sensors. However, it's quite expensive compared to the Nissan and Skoda and, while it's bigger than both these rivals, the driving experience is not up to the same standards.

Jaguar XF Sportbrake estate

The Jaguar XF Sportbrake is an estate version of the XF saloon. The rounded, spacious rear makes it far more practical than the standard XF, and there's a maximum boot capacity of 1,675 litres, compared to 963 litres in the saloon). That's on a par with rivals such as the BMW 5 Series Touring andAudi A6 Avant, but a little behind the Mercedes E-Class Estate. There are two diesel engines available: a 2.2-litre and a 3.0-litre V6. The former is noisy when you’re accelerating hard, while the latter is far smoother and faster. All Sportbrake models feel luxurious, however, thanks to stylish interior design and the use of high-quality materials.

Bentley Continental GT coupe

The Bentley Continental GT is a stylish, luxury performance car that is designed to carry up to four people in supreme comfort at speeds of up to 200mph. Boasting sharper styling, and with a considerable weight saving, the second generation Bentley Continental GT has slightly better fuel consumption and lower emissions than the outgoing model. The luxury interior maintains a sporting theme combining hand-crafted wood, leather and aluminium. The GT comes with a choice of two engines, a tweaked version of the proven twin-turbo 6.0-litre W12 unit, which is available in the standard GT and the even more powerful GT Speed. Then there's a 4.0-litre, twin-turbo V8 that returns combined economy of 27mpg - 10mpg more than the W12. Driving all four wheels through a six or eight speed automatic gearbox, performance is very impressive. Competition comes in the form of Aston Martin's Virage and the Ferrari California.

Volkswagen Golf hatchback

The VW Golf is the benchmark that all family hatchbacks, such as the Ford FocusVauxhall Astra and Renault Megane, measure themselves against. This seventh-generation car is up to 100kg lighter than the one it replaces, despite being longer and wider and offering more boot space and interior room. It's slightly lower, too, which gives it a sportier stance to go with its sharper styling. The interior has been completely redesigned, with high-quality materials and lots of new technology – including the option of a vast eight-inch touchscreen and a system that parks the car for you. Two diesel and two petrol engines are available, all of which are smooth and quiet on the road, along with six-speed manual and six-speed automatic gearboxes. Many will think it's design is a little tame - inside and out - but that's a small price to pay for the only car you'll ever need.

Vauxhall Astra Sports Tourer estate

The Astra Sports Tourer is perfect for people wanting elegant hatchback looks and big car practicality. There's clever FlexFold seating which allows drivers to fold the rear seats at the touch of a button, increasing the load capacity to 1,550 litres – that's even more in than the larger Insignia estate. Yet the Astra lives up to its ‘Sports’ badging on the road. It feels very stable, while keen drivers will also find that there's plenty of grip and responsive steering. On long journeys it's comfortable, although that large boot area does amplify road noise at motorway cruising speeds.
£16,400 - £26,305

Hyundai i30 Tourer estate

The i30 Tourer is Hyundai's best-value estate car and is designed to take on family friendly rivals like the Volkswagen Golf estate and Ford Focusestate. Based on the 2012 CarBuyer Car of the Year – the i30 hatchback – the Tourer is 185mm longer and has a 528-litre boot. With the rear seats folded there's 1,642 litres of luggage space. Modern exterior design and a top-quality interior are big pluses, while Hyundai's five-year warranty is another key selling point. You can choose between a 118bhp petrol engine or Hyundai's 1.6-litre CRDi diesel, with either 109bhp or 126bhp output. The range is made up of Classic, Active, Style and Style Nav versions, with prices starting at just over £16,000 and rising to more than £21,000. Standard equipment is generous and running costs are low across the range.

Volkswagen Passat estate

Practicality is everything for an estate – and this version of the VW Passat delivers. Not only is the boot one of the biggest in the family car class, it's also one of the most usable and versatile, with one-touch levers folding the seats. A clever device also allows for hands-free opening of the boot: simply wave your foot under the bumper and the electric tailgate lifts. With a good line-up of engines and great comfort, the Passat Estate is a fine buy – we just wish it was better to drive and had more visual flair.
£21,740 - £26,965

Audi A4 Avant estate

Thanks to a facelift late in 2011, the A4 Avant is now better to drive and kinder to the environment than ever. All of the engines have been made more efficient, the suspension has been tweaked to enhance the car’s comfort on the road and the cabin – which was already one of the best in this class – has been made even better. Thankfully, the large and practical boot remains intact, cementing the A4 Avant’s position as one of the finest all-round premium estates.

Honda CR-V SUV

The Honda CR-V was one of the first SUVs to be introduced that prioritised driving on the road rather than going off it. It offers a high driving position, spacious interior and its size gives added security when driving in town. As well as space inside, Honda has given the CR-V a long list of luxury and safety equipment, but that has pushed the price up to the level of premium rivals like the BMW X3 and Audi Q5. Honda has made the CR-V more comfortable to drive, and it benefits from Honda’s legendary reliability record.
