Every 5-star car on What Car?: SUVs

From nimble hatchbacks to stylish SUVs, and exciting sports cars to practical estates – this is where you'll find every model that has earned our highest road test rating...

Volvo XC40 COTY 2022 header
Ford Puma

With its nippy acceleration and agile handling, the Ford Puma will put a bigger smile on your face than any other small SUV. But it’s a car you can buy with your sensible hat on, too, thanks to its low CO2 emissions, excellent real-world fuel economy, cleverly designed boot and attractive monthly PCP costs. No wonder it's our reigning Small SUV of the Year.

Skoda Kamiq

Skoda Kamiq 2022 front

The Kamiq puts you quite low to the ground; in fact, its driving position is barely any more elevated than that of Skoda's Scala hatchback. However, in every other respect it's a brilliant choice, with its supple, controlled ride and remarkably spacious interior particular highlights.

Volkswagen T-Roc

Volkswagen T-Roc 2022 front

In contrast to the Kamiq, the T-Roc sits you high by small SUV standards, while its cosseting ride, superb refinement and practical boot will all appeal to families.

Kia Sportage 2022 front cornering

Stick to the lower-end versions, and the latest Kia Sportage offers outstanding value for money, with a smart interior, a generous amount of space for your passengers and luggage, and a decent ride. There's a hybrid option to help lower your running costs, but this version can sound strained if you put your foot down.

Range Rover Evoque 2019 front

It may well be the Evoque’s looks that first pique your interest, but it’s a fine car on more objective levels, too. It’s good to drive, really posh inside and is even reasonably practical by class standards. To top it all off, it has some of the strongest resale values of any car on sale today.

Volvo XC40 D4 R-Design front three quarters

It may be some time since we voted the multitalented XC40 our Car of the Year, but it's still our reigning champion in this class. It blends generous passenger space and a practical boot with a quality interior and top-notch safety, so you aren't only buying a hugely desirable product, but one with real substance.

Hyundai Santa Fe 2021 front

If you're looking for an SUV which can carry your family and all their luggage and still have space left over, then it's worth taking a long look at the latest Santa Fe. As well as being incredibly spacious, it comes with a long warranty for extra peace of mind, plus every model is loaded with kit.

Kia Sorento 2021 nose

The Kia Sorento is the best large SUV you can buy in 2021, because it has seven seats which are fit for adults, as well as a massive boot to carry all of their luggage. Every model is well equipped, too, and because there are hybrid and plug-in hybrid models available, you might even reduce your fuel bills compared with your old car.

Peugeot 5008 2021 front

The old 5008 was a fairly frumpy MPV, but it has been reinvented as a tech-heavy large SUV that's both stylish and practical. We particularly like its practical seven-seat interior and low CO2 emissions.

BMW X6 2021 RHD front cornering

This class wouldn't exist without the first BMW X6, so it's perhaps fitting that the latest model is at the very top of this growing market. It offers a plush interior featuring a class-leading infotainment system, plus lots of kit and even a decent amount of space. It also handles well, and is one of the most entertaining cars in this class to drive.
