The best small SUV deals
If you're in the market for a new car, you naturally 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 small SUVs, which we define as being anything shorter than 4.3m. These cars are exceptionally popular in the UK, because buyers love their raised driving positions and extra practicality over traditional family hatchbacks.
The Q2 is Audi's smallest and cheapest SUV yet, but it still has the sort of classy interior you expect from the brand. What's more, it's great to drive, with composed handling, precise steering and impressive refinement.
What Car? deal: Save £1331 on a 35 TFSI Sport, or up to £3332 on the Audi Q2 range – Target Price £24,944 | Target PCP £242 per month
BMW's smallest SUV is a rival for the Audi Q2 and Volkswagen Tiguan, but impresses with its high quality interior which offers plenty of space for families. It's a pricey choice, though, which is why this discount is worth paying attention to.
What Car? deal: Save £1903 on an sDrive18i SE, or up to £5281 on the BMW X1 range – Target Price £27,542 | Target PCP £320 per month
Citroen C3 Aircross
The C3 Aircross is an indirect replacement for Citroën's C3 Picasso MPV, which we always rated highly. But while the new car remains a practical choice – particularly if you go for the Flair model with its flexible rear seating – it's a lot more desirable than the old Picasso thanks to its funky SUV styling and numerous customisation options.
What Car? deal: Save £1000 on a 1.2 Puretech 110 Feel, or up to £3562 on the C3 Aircross range – Target Price £18,190 | Target PCP £182 per month
The Ecosport is Ford's smallest SUV model, and competes against rivals including the Renault Captur and Vauxhall Mokka X. It's got limited space inside for rear passengers, but we like its user friendly infotainment system and its generous equipment.

The Puma is a fantastic small SUV – in fact, it's our Car of the Year for 2020. Why does it deserve our top accolade? Well, as well as offering everything that an SUV buyer could want, including outstanding practicality and comfort, it also brings low fuel bills thanks to its clever mild-hybrid engine technology.
What Car? deal: Save £1383 on a 1.0 Ecoboost mHEV 155 Titanium, or up to £1802 on the Ford Puma range – Target Price £21,007 | Target PCP £233
The HR-V might look expensive next to its small SUV rivals, but healthy discounts are available and it combines good interior space with flexible seating and tidy handling.

Although it doesn’t look like one, it’s best to think of the Kona as a more stylish version of Hyundai's i20 hatchback, with an elevated driving position. That makes is a rival to small SUVs such as the Renault Captur and Seat Arona, and means it's a spacious and well-equipped choice.
What Car? deal: Save £1262 on a 1.0 T-GDi Blue Drive SE, or up to £3767 on the Hyundai Kona range – Target Price £18,288 | Target PCP £188 per month

Kia's Stonic is its smallest and most affordable SUV yet, with pricing that places it in direct competition with the likes of the Nissan Juke and Renault Captur. Like these cars, it isn't especially practical, but it handles more tidily and comes with a seven-year warranty.
What Car? deal: Save £1058 on a 1.0 T-GDi '2', or up to £2147 on the Kia Stonic range – Target Price £16,742 | Target PCP £180 per month
The Countryman is Mini's take on a small SUV, so mixes the cutesy styling of the big-selling Mini hatchback with a raised ride height and chunky body cladding. It's got a decent boot, too, and a high-quality interior.
What Car? deal: Save £1716 on a 2.0D Cooper Classic, or up to £2872 on the Mini Countryman range – Target Price £24,579 | Target PCP £295 per month
The Juke is a popular sight on UK roads, and with good reason: after all, it's the car which kicked off the trend for jacked-up family hatchbacks. This latest version offers plenty of substance to back up its standout looks, with a smart interior and a good driving position.
What Car? deal: Save £2012 on a 1.0 DiG-T N-Connecta, or up to £3188 on the Nissan Juke range – Target Price £19,448 | Target PCP £217 per month
Peugeot's take on the small SUV offers a classy interior, is well equipped and most versions are cheap to run. It's let down by a heavy depreciation and a high price, however, which is why our discount is worth paying attention to.

In essence, the Captur is a Clio with a smattering of SUV traits and the style factor turned up. The result is a high-riding small hatchback that benefits from the added practicality of a sliding rear bench seat.

The Arona might be Seat's smallest SUV, but it's surprisingly spacious inside and great to drive. Only so-so interior quality lets it down.
What Car? deal: Save £2724 on a 1.0 TSI 95 SE Technology [EZ], or up to £4975 on the Arona range – Target Price £16,991 | Target PCP £197 per month
The same value for money ethos which makes Skoda's other SUVs so recommendable is present on the smaller Kamiq, too. It's remarkably practical, and is classier inside than most rivals. That it's also good to drive means the Kamiq is a sure choice for any small SUV shortlist.
What Car? deal: Save £1133 on a 1.0 TSI 95 SE, or up to £2069 on the Kamiq range – Target Price £18,597 | Target PCP £167 per month

Vauxhall Crossland X
Although the Crossland X is almost identical in size to its sister car, the Mokka X, Vauxhall says the two are quite different, with the Crossland X being aimed at families who don't need the option of four-wheel drive. We like its generous standard equipment and interior space, but most rivals are better to drive.
What Car? deal: Save £2586 on a 1.2T Elite Nav, or save up to £3665 on the Vauxhall Crossland X range – Target Price £19,944 | Target PCP £209 per month

Volkswagen was quite late to the small SUV party, but its T-Roc is an excellent choice if you want a smaller SUV which has a premium interior. It's also spacious by the standards of this class, and has a comfortable ride.
