The BMW X5 is a brilliant large SUV. It's expensive to buy, but if you have the budget you won't be disappointed. It has masses of space and the option of seven seats, plus one of the best infotainment systems on sale. It's superb to drive on all roads too.
The Mercedes GLE's cabin isn't quite up to the quality of the X5's, but it's not far off and has a more in-your-face design. It does the important stuff well too, though, like offering lots of room, the option of seven seats and great engines. Its drive places emphasis on comfort, too, which is great.
The Audi Q7 is been around for a little while now, but is still one of the best large SUVs. You get seven seats, a very high-quality interior, beautifully smooth engines and a plush drive. Its infotainment system isn't the easiest to use while driving, but it has all the latest tech on board.
Like the Q7, the Volvo XC90 is no spring chicken, but it still turns heads like it did the day it was launched. It has a gorgeous interior, too, plus some of the roomiest third-row seats in the business. Its infotainment system is feeling old, but a comfy drive and efficient engines will take your mind off it.
The Kia Sorento is one of the best value large SUVs you can buy. For the money, little else can compete on space, practicality and standard equipment. It doesn't feel cheap to drive, either, nor does its interior and infotainment.
For those who need to transport seven people across the roughest terrain, the Land Rover Discovery was made to do just that. It can handle Chelsea too, mind, and looks the part outside the farm or Fortnum & Mason. There are better infotainment systems, but otherwise, the Discovery is comfy, quiet, spacious and great to drive.
If you have good access to charging, a Tesla Model X makes a superb large SUV. It's pricey, but easily one of the best EVs on sale too. With a near-400 miles range, punchy acceleration and those falcon-wing doors, what's not to love.
The Range Rover Sport looks superb and feels far more agile to drive than its size and weight might suggest. Unlike the larger Range Rover, it can come with seven seats, too. BMW still does a better infotainment system, but you'll struggle to beat the Sport's plush interior, smooth engines and sense of luxury.
If you want the best large SUV for a countryside blast, you want the Porsche Cayenne. It doesn't get the option of seven seats, but if that doesn't matter, it does come with a beautifu interior, stunning performance and seriously impressive cornering ability. You can also choose between six and eight sylinder petrol power, or have it as a plug-in hybrid instead.
The Hyundai Santa Fe has recently been updated with more space and quality than ever, plus improved infotainment and standard equipment. It's only available as a hybrid or plug-in hybrid, but if that suits your driving, it remains one of the best ways to transport seven people for the least cash.
