It's a crowded marketplace out there in SUV crossover land and the choices are ever-increasing for all those who hanker for an image or need a 'big' car for that jungle-like school run or heaven forbid, actually want to go off-roading.

Vauxhall hopes to increase its share of that market with the revamped Antara but have they done enough to challenge the more fashionable marques? Our launch trip took us north of the border to find out.
