We don’t (and really shouldn’t) include commercial vehicles on this list, but the Ford Ranger Raptor is just such a charming delicacy that we can’t help ourselves.

It’s essentially a mildly de-tuned off-road racer underneath, in suspension terms at any rate, so it has massive dampers and spring, and tyres with treads like shovels, to jump, yump, bounce, grip, claw, and generally obliterate any off-road obstacle you can think of.

A car in which you run out of country, before you run out of fun.

Best model: Ranger Raptor for €63,950

Price range: €63,950. Finance from POA per month.

Co2 emissions: 233g/km

Sum up: Yee. And, indeed, haw.

* A note on Co2 figures: For almost all the cars in the Top 100, we’ve quoted the stricter WLTP figures for Co2 emissions. A few are still quoted on their older NEDC2 figure, and that’s the number they’ll be taxed on. If you’re confused at all, just consult your local dealer for specific data for the make and model in which you’re interested.
