The Sportage is a great all-round family SUV that 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.

Top-spec GT-Line S trim has all the bells and whistles, adding ventilated seats, a powered tailgate, a panoramic roof, memory seat functions and part-leather and suede seats. It's the only Sportage with the option of a black roof.

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. You can have the 1.6 T-GDI with an automatic or a manual gearbox. The automatic also comes with mild-hybrid tech to reduce emissions and fuel consumption, and can be had with four-wheel drive.
