600Nm). The SDV6, with a 215kW ver­sion of that engine, is $113,600. The HSE is $125,800, the Au­to­bi­og­ra­phy $145,500.

If diesel doesn’t do it for you, the HSE comes as a 3.0-litre su­per­charged petrol V6 (250kW/450Nm) at $123,100. The glo­ri­ous 5.0-litre su­per­charged V8 (375kW/ 625Nm) is $161,600 in HSE Dy­namic grade and $182,400 as Au­to­bi­og­ra­phy Dy­namic.

The base car gets 19-inch al­loys, leather, rear cam­era, cli­mate con­trol, eight-inch touch­screen with hard disc drive and sat­nav. The spicier SDV6 adds high and low-range gear­ing, adap­tive sus­pen­sion, Ter­rain Re­sponse and 20s. It’s here that the Sport line-up re­ally be­gins.

The fully blinged Au­to­bi­og­ra­phy raises the player’s game to 21-inch­ers, high-beam as­sist, 18-way ad­justable front seats, front seat cool­ing and heat­ing, mood light­ing, cen­tre con­sole fridge and Merid­ian au­dio. V8 vari­ants cop amaz­ingly en­abling dy­namic sus­pen­sion and torque vec­tor­ing with an ac­tive rear lock­ing dif­fer­en­tial.
