In the market for a sports utility vehicle? Now is a great time to purchase as competition is fierce and there are many excellent SUVs now available. There are many options and one to suit every need whether you are looking for a little all-rounder or a larger car for the family.
Here are three of the best SUVs currently available on the market:
The 3008 started out as a cross between a people carried and an SUV, but the new model is the definition of an SUV. It is a desirable vehicle to look at with a 308 style nose and small windows for a sporty look. The inside is just as slick with a high-quality cabin and plenty of handy in-car tech to improve the experience. As you would expect with a car of this type, it has a very comfortable and spacious interior too.
Crucially, the 3008 is very economical and practical for its size with a range of conventional petrol and diesel options available. The 1.6-litre BlueHDi diesel with 118bph returns 70.6mpg and 104g/km – figures like this are a key reason this is one of the market leaders.
The Kodiaq ticks all the boxes for what you require from a mid-sized SUV. It has an advanced, no-nonsense styling both inside and out, ample space inside (seven-seat option on SE spec) and it is great to drive. Those with an active life will be happy to hear that there are four-wheel-drive versions available that do brilliantly well off-road making it one of the best SUVs.
There is an engine to suit every need too. It is capable of up to 56mpg, which also makes it one of the cheaper vehicles in its class to run (insurance is also low). Skoda has established themselves as a very reliable and quality brand in recent years, and the new Kodiaq shows exactly why.
It takes most manufacturers a few goes to put out a decent SUV, but not SEAT who have done it with their first release. The Ateca uses many of the same parts as the VW Tiguan but has a much sharper design that SEAT has become to be known for making it one of the best SUVs.
The Ateca also has great handling, impressive space inside and enough tech to keep most happy. It is also available in four-wheel-drive for those that need it. There are two petrol and diesel engines available, with the most efficient returning over 65mpg to keep running costs low. It also has a low-price tag and especially when you shop at places like AA Cars. You will be hard pushed to find a better looking and practical car for such low costs.
