If you’re after an SUV with a high-end interior, lots of kit and an economical petrol engine, the Mazda CX-30 should definitely be on your shortlist. But it comes with quite a few shortfalls to be a real contender, such as its lack of low-end performance, tight rear passenger space and relatively small boot. The Skoda Karoq is a much more rounded proposition.

This top trim adds a 360deg camera system, semi-autonomous driving and rear automatic braking. Too expensive to recommend, though.

You won’t find a turbocharger on this 2.0-litre engine, so you really have to thrash it past 4000rpm before it feels as strong as its 183bhp and 0-62mph time of 8.3sec suggest. CO2 emissions are low and if you drive it carefully it'll average officially over 50mpg, which is very good.
