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. In this feature, we've chosen our favourite versions of each model, so you know you're getting our top pick.

Alfa Romeo Stelvio
Want to inject some Italian flair into your bland family SUV? Enter the Alfa Romeo Stelvio. It's a premium saloon which rivals the BMW X3 and Porsche Macan, and offers entertaining handling and competitive running costs. Space for those in the rear seats could be better, though.
What Car? deal: Save £1519 on a 2.2D 190 Super, or up to £4804 on the Stelvio range – Target Price £37,771
The Q3 is Audi's premium family SUV, and a rival for the BMW X1 and Mercedes GLA among others. It's suitably plush inside, with a high-quality interior and a big boot.
What Car? deal: Save £1931 on a 35 TFSI Sport, or up to £3729 on the Q3 range – Target Price £31,179 | Target PCP £322 per month
The smallest of BMWs coupé-styled SUVs offers tidy handling and a classy interior, plus a strong range of engines, but it is less practical than conventional rivals.
What Car? deal: Save £2591 on an xDrive20d SE Step Auto, or up to £4581 on the X2 range – Target Price £34,269 | Target PCP £392 per month
Citroen 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 £2560 on a 1.2 Puretech 110 Shine, or up to £4455 on the C3 Aircross range – Target Price £16,732 | Target PCP £205 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 £2624 on a 1.2 Puretech 130 Sense, or up to £2853 on the C5 Aircross range – Target Price £21,711 | Target PCP £257 per month
Hyundai Santa Fe
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.
What Car? deal: Save £2436 on a 2.2 CRDi Premium 4WD, or up to £5124 on the Santa Fe range – Target Price £36,984 | Target PCP £363 per month
Kia's largest SUV offers lots of space for seven and is a good choice if you plan on towing regularly. This hybrid version should help to keep running costs in check, while every Sorento is also well equipped. In fact, the Sorento is our reigning Large SUV of the Year.
What Car? deal: Save £942 on a 1.6 T-GDi HEV 2, or up to £1872 on the Sorento range – Target Price £37,903 | Target PCP £380 per month
This hybrid SUV offers low company car tax bills and a comfortable driving position, plus it's sufficiently plush inside. It's expensive to buy and run, however, and not very roomy.
What Car? deal: Save £2693 on the 300h 2.5 CVT, or up to £3067 on the NX range– Target Price £33,367 | Target PCP £317 per month
The GLA is a jacked-up version of the regular Mercedes A-Class family hatchback. That means it has the same futuristic interior, and comes with a good amount of kit too. It's also comfortable, with a forgiving yet well-controlled ride.
What Car? deal: Save £1840 on a 200 Sport, or up to £2441 on the GLA range – Target Price £31,495 | Target PCP £346 per month
You can't go far wrong with a Qashqai – indeed, it's consistently one of the best-selling family SUVs in the UK. There's a range of efficient engines on offer, and the ride is comfortable if you stick with smaller wheels. You miss out on some of our recommended safety kit on lower trims, though.
What Car? deal: Save £1571 on a 1.3 DiG-T Acenta Premium, or up to £2176 on the Qashqai range – Target Price £21,979 | Target PCP £223 per month
If you're looking for an SUV that's both stylish and practical, the 3008 should definitely be on your shortlist. It's got a high quality interior, a large boot and handles well for a car of this size. It's pricier than some rivals, mind, which is why this discount is worth paying attention to.
What Car? deal: Save £1389 on a 1.2 Puretech Allure, or up to £5838 on the 3008 range – Target Price £27,371 | Target PCP £306 per month
Range Rover Sport
The Range Rover Sport has been a staple of the luxury SUV class for many years, and in its latest form remains one of the very best on sale. It's refined, comfortable and as capable away from the Tarmac as on it. Some rivals are more fun to drive, though.
What Car? deal: Save £3314 on a 3.0 D300 HSE, or up to £4074 on the Range Rover Sport range – Target Price £64,331 | Target PCP £608 per month
Range Rover Velar
The Velar is more road focussed than its Range Rover siblings, but can still tackle more muddy adventures than most owners are likely to ask of it. Add in a stylish interior and a refined range of engines – and even the option of plug-in hybrid power, should you want it – and this is one very desirable SUV.
What Car? deal: Save £3393 on a P400e S, or up to £4313 on the Velar range – Target Price £58,222 | Target PCP £546 per month
The Kadjar is heavily based on the Nissan Qashqai, which means it's one of the best all-rounders in the family SUV market. We particularly like its spacious interior and low running costs, and it's all backed up by Renault's four-year warranty.
What Car? deal: Save £3626 on a 1.3 TCE Iconic, or up to £7910 on the Kadjar range – Target Price £20,058 | Target PCP £254 per month
The Arona might be Seat's smallest SUV, but it's surprisingly spacious inside and great to drive. Only so-so interior quality lets it down.
What Car? deal: Save £3078 on a 1.0 TSI 95 SE Technology [EZ], or up to £3281 on the Arona range – Target Price £16,637 | Target PCP £181 per month
The same value for money ethos which makes Skoda's other SUVs so recommendable is present on the smaller Kamiq, too. It's remarkably practical, and is classier inside than most rivals. That it's also good to drive means the Kamiq is a sure choice for any small SUV shortlist.
What Car? deal: Save £760 on a 1.0 TSI 95 SE, or up to £2552 on the Kamiq range – Target Price £18,895 | Target PCP £179 per month
This replacement for the ever-popular Skoda Yeti combines superb practicality with a comfortable ride, plus it's available with luxurious features such as virtual instruments and gesture control.
What Car? deal: Save £1349 on a 1.5 TSI SE L, or up to £3457 on the Karoq range – Target Price £25,715 | Target PCP £251 per month
The Tiguan has to compete with the class-leading Range Rover Evoque, and with other prestige-badged rivals from the likes of Audi, BMW and Mercedes. However, it makes a good case for itself with a spacious interior, lots of standard kit and the fact that it handles well, despite its size.
What Car? deal: Save £1672 on a 1.5 TSI 150 Life, or up to £3807 on the Tiguan range – Target Price £26,308 | Target PCP £267 per month
