Practicality rating: 3 out of 53.0

Unfortunately, the Scorpio was never crash tested by Euro NCAP, but its rigid body feels tough enough to protect passengers in moderate impacts and withstand minor prangs. They are not particularly high on thieves’ priorities, either – which is possibly an indication of how gaudy those headlights and grille really are – though the immobiliser and alarm should act as a decent deterrent, too.

The Scorpio is well suited to motorway cruising – capable of sitting at 70mph for the length and breadth of the country – but it’s not as competent in and around the city, and although the boot offers sufficient load space, the Saloon doesn’t provide the same rear versatility as the roomier Estate model. The great level of equipment is a bonus, too, with the self-levelling rear suspension, electric mirrors and lumbar adjustment.
