The best large SUV deals
If you're in the market for a new car, then naturally you want the best price possible. And the good news is that by buying through What Car?, you're guaranteed to get a great deal without having to go through the hassle of haggling.
Today we've gathered the best deals on large SUVs – which we define as being anything longer than 4.5 metres. These cars aren’t usually particularly cheap to buy or lease, so for this kind of investment we expect a roomy interior, a lengthy list of standard equipment and excellent cruising refinement in return. A few models in this class are two-wheel drive, but the vast majority have four-wheel drive for at least a modicum of off-road ability.
Looking for a plush large SUV? Surely the Audi Q5 is already on your shortlist. And so it should be, because it's superb to drive and relatively cheap to run, yet also comes with one of the best interiors you'll find in any new car.
What Car? deal: Save £3351 on a 40 TDI Sport S tronic, or up to £3578 on the Audi Q5 range – Target Price £38,094 | Target PCP £409 per month
BMW's Audi Q5 and Land Rover Discovery Sport rival is superb to drive and offers a spacious, high-quality interior. In fact, we think it's one of the best large SUVs you can buy.
What Car? deal: Save £2970 on an xDrive20d MHT SE Step Auto, or up to £14,317 on the BMW X3 range – Target Price £39,435 | Target PCP £428 per month
If you like the idea of an SUV with a sleek, coupé-like roofline, the X4’s svelte lines will probably appeal to you. The X4 also offers great handling, while inside you'll find BMW's iDrive infotainment system, which is the best in the business.
What Car? deal: Save £3277 on a xDrive20d MHT Sport, or up to £10,212 on the BMW X4 range – Target Price £41,848 | Target PCP £397 per month
Citroen C5 Aircross
Citroën's largest SUV model offers a smooth ride and is quiet at motorway speeds, plus its engines are fairly frugal. It's not quite big enough inside to match the best in this class, though, and nor does it come with the option of seven seats.
What Car? deal: Save £1232 on a 1.2 Puretech 130 Feel, or up to £2862 on the C5 Aircross range – Target Price £24,423 | Target PCP £246 per month
Ford's large SUV is competitively priced against key rivals, decent to drive and is even available as a plug-in hybrid. It's not quite as practical as some large SUVs, but at least Titanium trim brings plenty of kit, including 18in alloy wheels, dual-zone climate control and keyless entry.
What Car? deal: Save £1753 on a 1.5 Ecoboost 150 Titanium, or up to £3084 on the Kuga range – Target Price £29,912

Hyundai’s largest SUV offers rugged, go-anywhere ability and a lofty driving position. It also has seven seats, plenty of equipment and a powerful yet economical diesel engine.

Kia's largest SUV offers lots of space for seven and is a good choice if you plan on towing regularly. It also has a big boot and comes well equipped, and the 1.6-litre hybrid packs a hefty 226bhp. Having electrical assistance available means you can travel for very short distances without using any fuel, too.
What Car? deal: Save £565 on a 1.6 T-GDi HEV '2', or up to £686 on the Sorento range – Target Price £38,280 | Target PCP £399 per month
Land Rover Discovery Sport
If you want a Land Rover that's still good to drive, yet isn't as large as the Discovery or Range Rover Sport, then the Discovery Sport has you in mind. It holds on to its value well and can even be had with seven seats.
What Car? deal: Save £2367 on a 2.0 D200 S auto, or up to £4254 on the Discovery Sport range – Target Price £38,013 | Target PCP £385
The GLC is one of the best cars Mercedes has launched in years. It’s good to drive, smart inside and lavishly equipped. It even stacks up well financially for private buyers and company car drivers; that's something we’re not used to saying about many modern Mercedes models.
What Car? deal: Save £3561 on a GLC 220d AMG Line Premium 9G-Tronic , or up to £4304 on the Mercedes GLC range – Target Price £42,319 | Target PCP £503 per month
Peugeot is on a roll at the moment, having successfully reinvented both the 5008 and the smaller 3008 into muscular SUVs while also adding more tech and practicality. The 5008 is our reigning Large SUV of the Year, in fact, thanks to its spacious interior, flexible seating and competitive CO2 emissions.
What Car? deal: Save £304 on a 1.2 Puretech Allure, or up to £351 on the Peugeot 5008 range – Target Price £31,131
The Tarraco is Seat's largest SUV and builds on the success of the Arona and Ateca by being good to drive, well equipped and having composed handling. It isn't the most practical choice in this market, though.
What Car? deal: Save £4236 on a 2.0 TDI 150 SE Technology, or save up to £5761 on the Seat Tarraco range – Target Price £28,154 | Target PCP £326 per month
The Kodiaq is proof that getting a large SUV with space for up to seven people need not cost the Earth. This is Skoda's largest SUV, and it's supremely practical inside while also offering excellent value for money.
