VW Tiguan 2.0 TDI 170 SE 4WD, £24,460
Target Price £22,596

A classy crossover with a versatile cabin and fine driving dynamics. This diesel model is punchy and can return nearly 43mpg.


Land Rover Freelander 2.2 TD4e XS, ’10/59
Price £23,800

An economical Land Rover? Yes, this ‘e’ version manages 42mpg. A three-month-old model would cost the Olivers less than £24,000.


Volvo XC60 D5 AWD SE, ’09/09
Price £27,000

We usually recommend the two-wheel-drive XC60. The Olivers need extra traction, though, so this 37.7mpg 4x4 version is the better bet.
