Used Peugeot 3008 2017-present

Whether you’re a fan of the Peugeot 3008’s looks or not, one thing’s for sure: the French firm has certainly tried to give its family SUV a striking appearance. It taps right into the current trend for aggressive styling. Then there's the swish interior. Compared with the functional dashboards of rivals such as the Nissan Qashqai and Seat Ateca, the 3008 is more akin to a motor show concept car, with its plentiful mix of materials and avant-garde design.

Stylish, practical and good to drive, the Peugeot 3008 is one of the best family SUVs you can buy. It has decent ride and handling and a good-sized boot, making it a good choice for families.

The Ateca broke new ground for Seat, because the Spanish brand had previously built as many SUVs as it had spaceships. But while Seat was more than fashionably late to the party, it turned up with an absolute cracker.

With a spacious interior, best-in-class handling and keen pricing, the Seat Ateca is one of the most rounded new cars on sale and should be at high up on your family SUV shopping list.

2. Skoda Karoq

The Karoq not only has some tough rivals to counter, it's also the replacement for the highly popular Yeti. Like its predecessor, the Karoq makes a great family car and offers the sort of lofty driving position that SUV buyers love.

The smart looking interior is spacious with flexible seating, and the Karoq is well equipped and enjoyable to drive, making it a top-drawer family SUV.
