The 25 most reliable SUVs: top five

There are plenty of SUVs to choose from, but they're not all as dependable as their rugged looks imply. So, here we reveal the top 25 performers in our most recent Reliability Survey...

Audi Q2 2020 rear corner

5. Audi Q2 (2016-present)

Audi Q2 2020 front cornering

Reliability rating 98.7%

Only 7% of Q2 owners reported a fault, and all of those were fixed for free. The faults typically surrounded a hiccup with non-engine electrics, but thankfully around 67% of cars could still be driven and were fixed in one day to one week.

Citroën C3 Aircross

Reliability rating 98.9%

A mere 6% of C3 Aircross drivers experienced a fault, mainly involving the exhaust. Even better, the cost of all faults was covered by Citroen and all cars were fixed in less than a week.

=1. Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross

Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross front

Reliability rating 100%

Mitsubishi announced that it was pulling out of the UK market in 2020 and you're unlikely to be able to buy a new model any more. However, the Eclipse Cross is well worth a look if you're after a roomy and rugged used family SUV. Those who already own one told us that their cars hadn’t put a foot wrong in the past year.
