Best SUVs for less than £30,000

4. Seat Arona 1.0 TSI 95 SE Technology

Best SUVs for less than £30,000

List price £17,545

The Arona is a rival to the likes of the Nissan Juke, Renault Captur and Suzuki Vitara, and our reigning Small SUV of the Year. It's good to drive and roomy inside, while its low running costs only sweeten the deal. Our recommended SE Technology trim level gets you an upgraded infotainment system as well as rear parking sensors.

3. Peugeot 5008 1.2 PureTech 130 Allure

Best SUVs for less than £30,000

List price £26,815

Gone are the days when affordability and practicality were the only considerations when buying a seven-seater. Luxury, refinement and stylish looks are now just as important to most buyers, and instead of ignoring this trend with its 5008, Peugeot has embraced it, creating a car that's as desirable as it is hugely capable.

Few cars can match the all-round brilliance of the Seat Ateca, which explains why it's so near 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. But what's the one car that we rate even higher?
