When it comes to heading off road and taking your pooch for hikes in the countryside, the best car for dogs has to be the Range Rover. Starting at £74,950, you’ll need more than just loose change to invest in this ride – but with plenty on offer for both you and your pet, it’s worth every penny.

The incredibly generous 1,124 litre boot means you can grab your pet, pack up a picnic and head for the hills. With bags of room throughout the cabin, your dog can get cosy no matter where they choose to sit – and plenty of height means dogs of any size will fit comfortably inside your nifty new car.
