The Fiat Panda 4x4 has a cult following and is a real capable piece of kit for rough terrain (not rock crawling, winching etc), the Suzuki Ignis is also a great little bit of kit of a similar nature. When have you ever heard a Suzuki owner complaining about their vehicle.
Not sure how they have ranked them, but I certainly wouldn’t put the Isuzu at the top of the list, and if that’s in there, where is the Hilux ?
Not even sure what the criteria is, as it clearly isn’t out and out 4x4 prowess as the defender wouldn’t be at number 10 behind two all wheel drive cars !!
