It’s also significantly cheaper, but if you’re after the ultimate luxury experience, the full-size Range Rover still has its unique attributes and an even more imperious demeanour. 

Considering that this large SUV weighs 2.3-tonnes, the Range Rover Sport offers a genuinely engaging drive with admirable capability in both performance and handling. The steering is precise, the air suspension keeps the car’s weight in check when cornering, and the diesel, petrol and PHEV powertrain options will all launch the Sport from 0-62mph in 6.3 seconds or less. The hottest 627bhp version called the Range Rover Sport SV turns things up to 11, and will hit 62mph in just 3.8 seconds.

3. Bentley Flying Spur

The Bentley Flying Spur is perhaps the quintessential British luxury saloon, embodying everything the brand has stood for, with a modern twist. Sharing lots of its DNA with the Porsche Panamera has given it a much more engaging driving experience than before, and aside from a slight compromise in ultimate ride comfort, gives nothing else away to its predecessor in terms of refinement or luxury. 

With the W12 engine being phased out, it’s the twin-turbo V8 that is our choice, rather than the PHEV version, feeling opulent and imperious in typical Bentley fashion. The cabin exudes luxury, thanks to the exceptional quality of its wood, leather and turned steel, clothed in an exterior design that’ll turn heads whether you’re at your Holland Park mansion or Cotswolds country estate.

2. Range Rover

The ultra-luxury SUV might now be a common model in many manufacturers’ ranges, but none of them are equal to the original luxury off-roader: the Range Rover. This British icon was completely redesigned in 2022, and the current version mixes exceptional levels of capability and technology into a contemporary package.
