The Kia Sportage offers a generous amount of space front and rear, plus a large boot and one of best interiors in its class. In our favourite 3 trim, you get loads of equipment, and entry-level trims make a lot of sense compared with pricier rivals. The Hyundai Tucson is slightly cheaper, but the Sportage is a more polished alternative.

The 3 trim could be the sweet spot in the range, with 18-inch alloy wheels, a 12.3inch touchscreen and 12.3inch digital instrument cluster. There's also a heated steering wheel, heated front and rear seats, electric front seats and part-leather seating.

The entry-level 1.6-litre petrol engine offers 148bhp and sprints from 0-62mph in 9.9sec. It should offer sufficient performance for pretty much any situation, even if it may need working hard to get up to speed.
