The best family SUV deals
If you're in the market for a new car, then naturally you want the best price possible. And the good news is that, by buying through What Car?, you're guaranteed to get a great deal without having to go through the hassle of haggling.
Today we've gathered the best deals on family SUVs – which we define as being any SUV between 4.3-4.5 metres in length. As the name suggests, the vast majority of these SUVs are designed for family duties rather than serious off-roading, so practicality is paramount. However, that shouldn't come at the expense of a decent drive; the best examples combine tidy handling with smooth engines and a ride that's comfortable enough to ensure the kids aren't left feeling queasy.
