Land Rover Discovery – from £43,495

With its styling looking a lot like the Discovery Sport (surprise, surprise) the new Discovery may not look as rough and tough as before. But Land Rover says it will still be a proper off-roader, only with more comfort and modern technology. That includes something called 'remote seat folding technology', which means the interior can be configured via your smartphone.

As well as the existing 3.0-litre V6, power will come from a 240PS version of the 2.0-litre Ingenium four-cylinder diesel. The new Discovery also boasts an improved towing capacity of 3500kg, as well as a semi-autonomous advanced tow assist system to take the stress out of reversing with a trailer.

The new XC90 suffers from appalling road noise and resonance on some surfaces. There are 90 plus pages of comments on the Volvo owners forum. Volvo withdrew their own forum due the growing criticism of the car. My experience with an MY xc90 was so bad that I traded it in for a Q7 within six months of unhappy ownership.
