What alternatives should I consider to a used Mercedes GLA-Class hatchback?

The Audi Q3 is a more complete and appealing car than most of its rivals. It has a high-quality interior and an easy-to-use rotary controller for its infotainment system. It’s compact, easy to drive and should be at the top of your list if you’re looking for a used small SUV.

The BMW X1 is a spacious and practical car with a high-quality interior, fine handling and a great infotainment system. Its ride is rather firm, but if you can put up with that, it’s a classy and desirable compact SUV that makes a sound alternative to the Q3.

  • Plenty of standard kit
  • Disappointing ride and handling
