1

Volvo XC90

On sale since 2015, the Volvo XC90 is one of our favourite premium SUVs, rivalling the BMW X5 and Mercedes-Benz GLE. It's got a superb, upmarket interior, and it's also one of the safest cars on sale. A range of petrol, diesel and hybrids engines means there's an XC90 for everyone - which might explain its popularity on HonestJohn.co.uk.

Jaguar F-Pace

The Jaguar F-Pace was a hit with our readers when it first came out in 2016 and that popularity's showing no signs of waning. Deservedly so, too - not only does the F-Pace look the business, it's also great to drive. The 30d is our engine of choice.

BMW 5 Series

The 5 Series is a superb executive saloon, with top notch refinement and quality throughout. BMW's trademark driving enjoyment shines through on a challenging road, although some might feel that the interior feels a little flat against the equally excellent Mercedes-Benz E-Class.

Mercedes-Benz E-Class

It's not often a car comes along that's hard to find fault with, but the Mercedes-Benz E-Class comes mightly close to that. It's a car that's not only more refined, but higher quality and significantly more luxurious than the Audi A6 and BMW 5 Series with which it competes. It's head and shoulders above the competition.

Lexus RX

If you're looking for a hybrid SUV with a reputation for reliability, the Lexus RX is the car for you. It's not as brash as rivals, subtly going about its business very well. If you cover lots of miles, we'd suggest searching for a diesel, otherwise the Lexus RX is a very easy large premium car to justify.

Audi Q7

If you want a large premium car with room for all the family, the Audi Q7 is a strong choice. It comes with seven seats, a huge boot and a cabin that's difficult to find fault with. Recent updates have brought revised looks, new digital instruments and a fresh engine line-up.

Land Rover Discovery

Exceptional comfort and practicality make the Land Rover Discovery the ultimate family runaround. While it started off as a workhorse, the Discovery's gradually moved its way upmarket, meaning the fifth-generation model is fully deserving of its place in this premium cars shortlist.

BMW X5

While not quite as big as the BMW X7, the X5's still pretty huge. It's got everything you could want in a large premium SUV - that desirable high seating position, a quality interior and lots of space. It's good to drive, too - surprisingly good, considering its hefty dimensions.

Audi A6 Avant

The latest Audi A6 proves you don't need an SUV to have a large premium car with lots of space. It's got a tech-packed interior and a choice of petrol and diesel engines, all with mild-hybrid technology. Our only gripe is the slightly hesitant tiptronic gearbox, so take one for a test drive before parting with your money.

Tesla Model S

While other car makers hurry to launch premium electric cars, Tesla's been leading the way for a number of years now. With a range of up to 379 miles and acceleration that could shame a supercar, it's no surprise the Model S attracts a huge amount of interest from readers of HonestJohn.co.uk.
