Used Car Awards 2013


Compact SUVs have proven somewhat popular in the UK, not just because they get the chunky looks and high driving position associated with larger 4x4s, but also because they can be as cheap to run a typical family hatchback.

For those reasons, you'll find two used compact SUVs as our winners, both sporting the latest infotainment technology, safety kit and frugal engines.
