The Countryman is Mini's take on a small SUV, so mixes the cutesy styling of the big-selling Mini hatchback with a raised ride height and chunky body cladding. It's got a decent boot, too, and a high-quality interior.
Skoda Octavia (diesel)
Target Price discount: 9.3%Minimum expected cash saving: £1758
The Octavia is quite simply the best family hatchback you can buy, which is why it earned our maximum five-star rating. There are more stylish options, but if your priorities are a comfortable ride, loads of space and generous standard equipment for a very affordable price, then little gets close.
Target Price discount: 7.5%Minimum expected cash saving: £1818
If you're looking for an SUV that's both stylish and practical, the 3008 should definitely be on your shortlist. It's got a high quality interior, a large boot and handles well for a car of this size. It's pricier than some rivals, mind, which is why our Target Price discount is worth paying attention to.
