Can you recommend a ULEZ compliant vehicle?

We have three dogs but I also drive to London twice a week so I need a car that’s practical, comfortable and ULEZ compliant. I also do at least one journey a fortnight of 150 miles plus. We own a Freelander for proper winter and fields etc but save that for short trips as it’s a 2007 model. Should I choose a Subaru, Lexus or Discovery Sport?

The Lexus RX is worth a look. Its petrol-electric hybrid engine will save you money on fuel compared to its non-hybrid rivals and makes the Lexus very relaxing to drive. Lexus' build quality can't be bettered so you can buy a second-hand example relatively worry free. You'll get a serviceable car for around £5000, while £10,000 and above will buy you a really nice example. You'll need more than £40,000 for a nearly new example of the current car. We have reviews for each generation:
