What alternatives should I consider to a used MG GS hatchback?
The Dacia Duster isn’t the most sophisticated of cars, but it is spacious, inexpensive and can even be found with a choice of a small turbocharged petrol or ultra-efficient diesel. There’s even a four-wheel-drive version for some light off-roading.
Another good value SUV with the option of four-wheel drive is the Ssangyong Tivoli. The boot isn’t massive and it doesn’t have the nicest finished interior, but you do get a lot of equipment for not an awful lot of money – plus, there are even diesel and four-wheel-drive options available.
