4. Nissan Qashqai 1.5 dCi N-Connecta
List price £24,655
The Nissan Qashqai is the car that started the trend for small, family-friendly SUVs, and it remains one of the best. True, there are cheaper alternatives, such as the Suzuki SX4 S-Cross, but the Qashqai makes up for its price premium with a spacious, practical, well-designed interior, solid build quality and superb comfort and refinement. Just be aware that a facelifted version goes on sale later this year.
3. Peugeot 3008 1.2 PureTech Allure
List price £23,755
Peugeot's original 3008 was What Car?'s Car of the Year in 2010, and the latest version came close to matching that achievement this year. Its bold looks are combined with a striking and high-tech dashboard that feels extremely classy. And although some rivals handle better, the 3008 beats most of them for ride comfort.
2. Skoda Kodiaq 2.0 TDI SE 7 Seat
List price £28,300
This seven-seater SUV is one of the most practical cars you can buy, so it's perhaps not surprising that it's consistently among the most searched for cars on Whatcar.com. It's a comfortable choice with a smart interior, although you do have to be careful when speccing it because it's easy to push the price north of £30k if you start adding options.
