For many people, large SUVs have replaced big saloons as the ultimate expression of modern motoring, and they make great family cars, thanks to their spacious and practical interiors.

The best are also easy to drive, combining a calm ride with tidy handling and a lofty driving position with user-friendly controls. But with so many models to choose from, it can be difficult to know where to start, so here we're counting down our top 10 – and we've named the large SUV to avoid, too.

10. Seat Tarraco

Seat Tarraco front

The Tarraco is Seat's largest SUV, and follows on from the smaller Arona and Ateca – both of which are very well regarded in their respective classes. Fortunately, there's plenty to like about the Tarraco too, with composed handling, a smooth 2.0-litre diesel engine and lots of equipment. It's not as practical as some other cars in this list, though.

Tiguan Allspace

Take the regular Volkswagen Tiguan, add some more space and two extra seats, and hey presto, you've made the Tiguan Allspace. Its high-quality interior and flexible seating are impressive, and it's good to drive.

8. Volvo XC60

Volvo XC60

Volvo used to be very much a step down from the models of Audi, BMW and Mercedes, both in terms of price and ability, but no longer. The latest XC60 is comfortable, well equipped and has a high-quality interior, it won the 2018 Lombardyexperience? Safety Award, having performed brilliantly when it was crash tested by Euro NCAP.
