The best 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.
Our free online New Car Buying service links you to dealers willing to match or beat a discounted Target Price, which is set by our team of mystery shoppers. And no sector is more competitive than that for 4x4s and SUVs – something that's good news for bargain hunters.
These models appeal to families because they're spacious and make it easy to get child seats, buggies and other family paraphernalia in and out. Plus, your view of the road is generally better, because you can see over the top of regular family saloons and hatchbacks.

The Q2 is Audi's smallest and cheapest SUV yet, but it still has the sort of classy interior you expect from the brand. What's more, it's great to drive, with composed handling, precise steering and impressive refinement.

If you like the idea of an SUV with a sleek, coupé-like roofline, then 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 £3685 on a xDrive30d M Sport X Step Auto – Target Price £50,390
Citroën C3 Aircross
The C3 Aircross is an indirect replacement for Citroën's C3 Picasso MPV, which we always rated highly. But while the new car remains a practical choice – particularly if you go for the Flair model with its flexible rear seating – it's a lot more desirable than the old Picasso thanks to its funky SUV styling and numerous customisation options.
What Car? deal: Save £3485 on a 1.2 PureTech 130 Flair EAT6 – Target Price £18,885
The Ecosport is Ford's smallest SUV model, and competes against rivals including the Renault Captur and Vauxhall Mokka X. It's got limited space inside for rear passengers, but we like its user friendly infotainment system and its generous equipment.

The larger of Honda's two SUVs is easy to drive and comes with either an efficient 1.5-litre petrol engine or as a hybrid, where a 2.0-litre petrol engine is paired with an electric motor. What's more, there's a comfortable driving position and decent boot space.

Kia's Stonic is its smallest and most affordable SUV yet, with pricing that places it in direct competition with the likes of the Nissan Juke and Renault Captur. Like these cars, it isn't especially practical, but it handles more tidily and comes with a seven-year warranty.
What Car? deal: Save £1298 on a 1.0T GDi Maxx auto – Target Price £18,757
Kia's largest SUV offers lots of space for seven and is a good choice if you plan on towing regularly. The sole engine on offer is a 2.2-litre diesel which is punchy, if not particularly fast. KX-2 models come fairly well equipped, too.
What Car? deal: Save £2305 on a 2.2 CRDi KX-2 auto – Target Price £33,345
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.
What Car? deal: Save £2216 on a 1.5 Cooper Sport [Comfort Pack] – Target Price £24,934

What Car? deal: Save £1135 on a 1.7 dCi Visia [Smart Vision Pack] [7 Seat] – Target Price £26,155
In essence, the Captur is a Clio with a smattering of SUV traits and the style factor turned up. The result is a high-riding small hatchback that benefits from the added practicality of a sliding rear bench seat.
What Car? deal: Save £1204 on a 1.3 TCE 130 GT Line – Target Price £18,926
The Ateca might be Seat's first SUV, but it's also one of the best family SUVs around. It's spacious inside, offers class-leading handling and is keenly priced – and that's before you take our discount into account too. All in all, it's a very impressive package.
