The best off-road SUVs need to be able to head off the beaten track with the same confidence as when they’re transporting you and your family around town. If your lifestyle extends to beyond the confines of the concrete jungle, you’ll want a vehicle that’s equipped for the job. We’ve rated the top SUVs for this purpose based on aspects such as their four-wheel-drive systems, their ground clearance, and how impressive their approach and departure angles are.

The toughest off-road SUVs should also be built to a high standard with suspension systems and components that can handle challenging conditions, so reliability is another factor we evaluate in our reviews. We also delve into whether you should go for the petrol or diesel alternatives depending on your needs, as well as how each model stacks up against key competitors. Using our ranking of the top SUVs, you can quickly find one that appeals to you.
