What alternatives should I consider to a used DS DS 4 hatchback?

If you’d like your SUV to be compact and car-like, the Audi Q2 might just fit the bill. It isn’t as eager to change direction as the A3 family hatchback upon which it is based, but it's still nice to drive, offers plenty of decent petrol and diesel engines and features a high-quality interior.

For those looking for a bit more interior space, there’s the Seat Ateca. It doesn’t have a premium image or the finest interior plastics, but that means you can afford to go for a more highly specified version for the same money as the Q2, plus it will have exactly the same engine and be just as good to drive.

While it may be the old-timer here, the BMW X1 is still a very fine premium family SUV. If you find a diesel version with the excellent eight-speed automatic gearbox, you’ll have a cost-effective and very relaxing motorway cruiser, and all models come with a powered tailgate.
