Family SUV

While we define a small SUV as something less than 4.3 metres long and a large SUV as measuring more than 4.5 metres, family SUVs tread the middle ground.

As the name suggests, the vast majority are designed for family duties rather than serious off-roading, so practicality is paramount. However, that shouldn't come at the expense of a decent drive; the best examples combine tidy handling with smooth engines and a ride that's comfortable enough to ensure the kids aren't left feeling queasy.

The Seat Ateca and Skoda Karoq should definitely be on your shortlist. But if you have a bit more to spend, the best of the lot is the Volvo XC40.
