Parkers overall rating: 3.5 out of 5 3.5

The Amazon offers an unrivalled view of the road ahead, and the car is so wide you feel rather distant from your front-seat passenger. There is a prominent satellite navigation system with touch-screen operation and the monitor also doubles as the rear-view screen when reversing thanks to a camera mounted in the tailgate. The steering wheel and driver's seat are electrically adjustable ensuring the optimum driving position can be found and the large door mirrors offer a good view along the car's flanks helping reduce the size of blindspots.

Numerous switches to do with all sorts of features are scattered alternately to the driver's left and right as well as on the centre console. It means you sometimes have to go looking for switches whereas in a more modern vehicle they would have been sited in more obvious places.

The vast interior will seat seven in relative comfort with standard leather and automatic climate control, with extra vents for passengers in the third row of seats, front seats are heated and electrically adjustable and the suspension can be lowered to make getting in and out of the car less of a hike. The Amazon also rides quite comfortably for an off-roader.
