The Range Rover is an iconic vehicle and one that’s highly regarded as combining true luxury with serious off road ability. The latest model is the best exponent of that thinking yet. Inside it’s wonderfully upmarket with a modern and stylish cabin that’s superbly finished with expensive-feeling materials. On the road it’s just as good with a supremely supple ride and excellent noise insulation, while there’s acres of space, particularly for passengers in the back.

The downside is a hefty price tag and relatively high running costs. But for sheer class and desirability – few cars can match the Range Rover. In 2008 it was improved even further with the introduction of an excellent TDV8 diesel engine while the model was revised in 2009 with improved handling and a more advanced cabin.
