How easy is it to drive? The size of the car may put off some people, but it is without a doubt one of the easiest vehicles to steer. Despite the obvious hugeness of the vehicle the Tahoe is a dream drive that drivers of any competency will enjoy with ease.

Who is this car best suited for? Busy soccer mums that need to ferry the kids around, take the dog to the vet, do the weekly shop and still have time to catch up with the girls for a coffee.

Favourite thing about the car: It’s hard to pick just one thing because there’s so much about this motor that we loved! The size of the boot and the easy mechanics to create even more space by automatically reclining seats is a massive bonus.

Overall rating: 10/10

Performance: You wouldn’t buy a seven-seat Tahoe for its speed, but then you wouldn’t be disappointed if you did because it’s no slouch out of the pits. However, the main attraction of this car is undoubtedly its size. It really is a beast, but a beast that can be easily controlled by anyone in the driving seat. Sitting so high-up means passengers get a great view of the road that is about to be eaten up by the Tahoe, and built in Blu-Ray players with wireless headphones keep backseat drivers happily occupied. The leather chairs and extensive legroom make the interior feel more like a living room that you never want to leave. Finding a parking space can be troublesome, but parking assistance helps guide the Tahoe safely into most decent sized bays. Of all the SUVs in the UAE, the Tahoe is definitely the one with the most street-cred while also serving as a multi-faceted family car.
