Your relatively high budget means you've got a great range of SUVs to choose from and buying used, as in most cases, means your money goes further, so you can have your pick from the largest and most luxurious SUVs on sale today. Badge appeal is in no short supply, either.
Our recommended choice: 2017 Volvo XC90 2.0 D5 Powerpulse Momentum AWD Geartronic
Price £37,980 Mileage 21,444
The first XC90 was so right that it stayed in production for 12 years. It was stylish, spacious, practical and classy, and it had seven seats. This second-generation version upped the ante by being even better to drive and more refined, and it has fast become a school-run favourite.
For the price of a new Jaguar F-Pace, you can have this one-year-old XC90. And if it’s safety kit you’re after, you could do no better; Volvo claims it’s the safest car of its type on sale, with a host of high-tech features both inside and outside helping to prevent accidents and keep you safe, plus it has a five-star Euro NCAP crash test rating.
Also consider: 2017 Audi Q7 3.0 TDI 218 quattro S line Tip Auto
Price £41,402 Mileage 24,215
The Q7 is a luxury SUV with a refined and powerful engine that offers truly impressive straight-line performance and a smooth limo-like ride that cossets its passengers. It’s stylish inside, too, with a modern and minimalist dashboard design, and it’s beautifully put together. Add in seven usable seats, plenty of safety kit and a high dose of practicality and the Q7 is hard to beat. We reckon you could knock the price down to less than £40,000 without too much trouble, too.
Also consider: 2017 Volvo XC60 2.0 D4 Inscription AWD Geartronic
Price £37,427 Mileage 5400
The XC90’s little brother is equally as stylish and very nearly as spacious and practical as its sibling. It won our safety award at this year’s 2018 What Car? Car of the Year Awards, because it posted the best Euro NCAP score of 2017 and comes with a raft of safety features.
