Best used large SUVs for less than £25,000

Large SUVs are all the rage, but you don’t need to spend a fortune to get into a used one; just take a look at our handy top 10...

Kia Sorento

7. Kia Sorento

Just like the Hyundai Santa Fe, the Kia Sorento is a vast SUV that can be had with seven-seats. It edges ahead of the Santa Fe in our list because it has the longer of the two warranties, therefore offering added peace of mind. Mid-range KX-2 is the one to go for; it gives you a rear-view camera, sat-nav, leather trim and heated front seats. It’s not thrilling to drive, but it is comfortable and refined.

We found: 2018 Kia Sorento 2.2 CRDi KX-3, 19,706 miles, £23,995


This generation of X3 was a vast improvement on the original, with a much nicer interior that befits a luxury vehicle. Mid-range SE model got a better level of standard equipment and the revised 2.0 diesel engine that was introduced in 2014 was rather refined and exceptionally economical.

We found: 2017 BMW X3 xDrive20d SE auto, 29,520 miles, £19,499

5. Mazda CX-5

Used Mazda CX-5 17-present

The current Mazda CX-5 has plenty of room for five to travel in comfort, plus there's little wind or road noise to distract you. There's a 2.0-litre petrol if you need it, but we’d suggest going for the 148bhp 2.2-litre diesel, because it's much more flexible. The handling is nice and sharp for such a tall car and the steering is well weighted to inspire confidence.
