2018 Land Rover Discovery Sport SD4 HSE review
  • External styling looks different and premium; Plenty of room for four adults and luggage in five-seat guise; Flat load floor makes the luggage space easy to access
  • Infotainment and connectivity can't match the segment leaders; Cabin doesn't quite feel as premium as the price indicates; Stop/start system is way too laggy for a luxury vehicle like this

OUR RATING
7.8 / 10

2018 Aston Martin DB11 Volante review

What better way to review an Aston Martin than with the top down the whole time? The stunning DB11 is hunting all other GTs and doing it with style and panache.

2019 BMW X4 review

BMW expanded the 'SUV Coupe' segment with the original X4, and now we're testing the revised 2019 model. It's got plenty of standard kit, and while we don't know final pricing, promises to be a hit with buyers.

2018 Jeep Compass Limited review

Replacing the old Compass means the new generation had to be significantly better, and it is. This is a competitive segment, though, so even the Jeep brand heritage won't do all the hard work for the company's small SUV.

The Lexus RX300 in F Sport guise continues the Japanese brand's commitment to extensive standard inclusions and build quality. It's an exceptional SUV in every sense.

2018 Toyota Prado GX review

While the GXL is the quintessential go-to for so many Prado buyers, there's also the entry-grade GX manual as an option for those on a tighter budget.

The revised 2018 Porsche Cayenne is actually the fifth version of the popular large SUV – if you include midlife updates. It continues its push as the performance SUV to watch with a potent blend of power and balance.

2018 Lexus IS300 Sports Luxury review

The Lexus IS300 range comprises many variants and trim grades, but the Sports Luxury is perhaps the smart-money buy with an excellent 2.0-litre turbocharged engine.

2018 Toyota Fortuner GX review

While the Fortuner is the most obvious rugged off-roader in the Toyota stable, you might not have considered the manual gearbox. Perhaps you should.
