But then again, none of the people around our office have been overenthusiastic breeders that need such large family cars.
The Audi Q7 is perhaps the most aspirational car here, and it has the best engine, a 272 horsepower V6 that, weirdly, is also the most economical. However, the German interior won't appeal to people who want to de-clutter their lives, while the rear-most two seats are less than ideal.
Meanwhile, the Land Rover Discovery is revealed as a top contender in the luxury 7-seat SUV market. Yes, it's heavy and not that fast, but scores browny points in the practicality department. Besides this 240 HP 2-liter diesel, you can get it with a V6... and you probably should. The seats in the last row are as big as all the others, and you even have a sunroof back there. Kids love it!
The Volvo XC90 looks sportier than it should in this R-Design trim. It's got ample space and a tablet-like infotainment system. But we think the Land Rover came close to winning the review. If only JLR made better infotainment systems!
Anyway, the highlight of this review is a special hay bale test where the trio of female reviewers tries to find out which car has the biggest trunk. Have you ever seen something so messy and fun in the back of an expensive SUV?
