Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

Cupra’s first standalone model is a handsome crossover with decent road manners and plenty of space

Pros
Sharp looks,
handles well for a crossover,
plenty of space and equipment

Cons
Fiddly touch-sensitive heater almost as annoying as having to explain the badge to your mates

By: 
topgear.com

Pros
Strong range of engine options
Great interior style and quality
Genuinely good fun to drive for an SUV

Cons
Fairly limited personalisation options
There are more practical options
Some infotainment frustrations

The Cupra Formentor doesn't feel as playful as the closely related Volkswagen T-Roc R, but it’s every bit as fast in its similarly priced, range-topping form, plus it handles with composure and has a much nicer interior. In addition, cheaper, less powerful versions of the Formentor offer the same sporty looks as the flagship model – something that isn’t the case with lesser T-Rocs. Just bear in mind that you can have our 2021 Sports SUV of the Year, the Ford Puma ST, for not much more than the cheapest Formentor.

Pros
Well equipped
Surefooted and grippy handling
Smart interior

Cons
TSI 310 isn’t as much fun as the very best sports SUVs
Slightly hesitant automatic gearbox
Fiddly controls

By: 
whatcar.com

Pros
Strong off-road capabilities
Wealth of customization options
High-tech safety and off-road features
Smooth ride for an off-road-oriented SUV

Cons
Options can get pricey
Cargo door is heavy and opens toward the curb

By: 
edmunds.com

Pros
Modern design looks cool
Awesome off-road capabilities
Lots of personalisation options

Cons
A Discovery is better at seating seven
Top models are Range Rover money
Land Rover's poor reliability record

By: 
carwow.co.uk

Land Rover is introducing a V-8 engine into the Defender lineup for 2022: the 518-hp Supercharged 5.0-liter V-8 that's found in the Range Rover and Range Rover Sport models. The V-8 will be available on both the two-door 90 and four-door 110 models; a high-end Carpathian Edition model will also sport the V-8 engine.

Pros
Ultra-capable off-road,
surprisingly refined on-road,
well-equipped interior.

Cons
Disappointing fuel economy,
desirable features carry high price tags,
six-cylinder isn't as quick as we'd hoped.
