What's the best SUV with all-wheel drive?

What would you say is the best and most fuel-efficient SUV with all-wheel drive? I absolutely love manual cars but will consider automatic. Been looking at regular and plug-in hybrids. Is a 350-mile range realistic?

The new Mazda CX-60 could be a good option. It's a four-wheel-drive plug-in hybrid SUV with an electric range of up to 39 miles – like all PHEVs, you will need to charge it regularly to get the best from it, though. If you actually need to go off road, a Land Rover Defender P400e or smaller Land Rover Discovery Sport P300e could be a good alternative.
