1. Seat Ateca

Toppling class titans like the Nissan Qashqai is no easy feat, but such is the breadth of the Ateca's talents. It has a spacious interior, class-leading handling and tempting pricing – and for those reasons it deserves its place at the top of our list. If you're looking for the best small SUV out there, look no further.
