1. Skoda Karoq

The Skoda Karoq is a fantastic family SUV, with compact dimensions that make it easy to handle around town, yet it has a huge and versatile interior that gives it the capability to carry everything you need. Plus, the Karoq's raised ride height and large window area help to give the driver great all-around visibility.

The 1.0-litre petrol engine is great for those on a budget, but you'll need a 2.0-litre diesel if you want four-wheel drive. In any case, the diesel is great if you do loads of miles every year, and the additional torque helps when you’ve got a full complement of passengers and luggage. Automatic gearboxes can be hesitant when pulling away from a standstill, but are smooth once up to speed.

We found: 2018 Skoda Karoq 2.0 TDI SE 4x4, 11,000 miles, £20,000

Spacious and well-equipped, but let down by a bad ride and a small boot.
