Parkers overall rating: 3 out of 5 3.0

Good aerodynamics for its size. The best model is the 3.2 D-ID. It pulls well from low revs and is happy cruising on the motorway but can be hard work in town. In 3.5 V6 petrol form, it’s torquey and is better-suited to overtaking.

Bulky but relatively easy to drive around town. On-road handling is weak – bodyroll in corners, so-so wet-weather grip. Auto ‘box has a slick sequential shift and off-road abilities are unquestioned.
