The posh SUV test
BMW X5 takes on Range Rover Sport TDV6 and Cayenne Diesel in the war of the big 4x4s

Which leaves the Range Rover Sport TDV6 SE. Even this isn't the pick of the range - the slightly higher-powered SDV6 might well be the practical sweetspot for this car - but the Sport has something that the other two don't: proper character. It's a stronger alloy of a multitude of little satisfactions, from the relaxed way you find yourself driving it, to the stylish interior and to the way you glance back when you park it. It's a fabulous all-rounder in a group of the very good. And, sometimes, that little bit extra is all you really need.
