What alternatives should I consider to a used Mazda CX-3 hatchback?

The Renault Captur is a very popular small SUV, being refined, well equipped and roomy enough for four. It comes with a sliding rear bench seat, which adds to its practicality. Used ones are good value for money, too.

The Audi Q2 is at the premium end of the small SUV class, with a classy, user-friendly interior containing plenty of tech. On top of that, it handles well and is quite good to drive – a rarity in this class. However, like the CX-3, it’s a little tight for rear seat room.
