1. Seat Ateca 1.4 EcoTSI 150 SE
List price £21,710
Few cars can match the all-round brilliance of the Seat Ateca, which explains why it's at the top of this list. It combines a spacious, family-friendly interior with a long list of standard equipment and class-leading handling. Plus, it gives you all this for a scarcely believable price. If you're looking for the best SUV for less than £30,000, look no further.
SUVs for less than £30,000 that are worth waiting for
This replacement for the somewhat off-the-wall Skoda Yeti is a far more conventional model, with styling in the vein of the larger Kodiaq. On sale before the end of the year, it shares its underpinnings with the Seat Ateca, but is softer riding. Expect the Karoq to be priced from about £17.500.
The T-Roc will be Volkswagen's smallest, funkiest and most affordable SUV when it goes on sale this autumn. It's expected to cost from around £20,000 and will be available with two or four-wheel drive. Meanwhile, inside you'll get body-coloured trim, digital instruments and a 9.2in touchscreen infotainment system.
