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 on a new 21-plate car without having to go through the hassle of haggling.
Our free online New Car Buying service links you to dealers willing to offer a great deal, with our Target Price deals used as the basis. Target Price is the most our team of mystery shoppers think you should pay for a new, factory-ordered car based on their everyday haggling. Dealers using our system are encouraged to match or beat Target Price – and if they don't we'll highlight it to them and you, and if necessary do all we can to find you one that will.
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.

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.

Although it doesn’t look like one, it’s best to think of the Kona as a more stylish version of Hyundai's i20 hatchback, with an elevated driving position. That makes is a rival to small SUVs such as the Renault Captur and Seat Arona, and means it's a spacious and well-equipped choice.
What Car? deal: Save £1447 on a 1.6 GDi Hybrid SE Connect, or up to £2190 on the Hyundai Kona range – Target Price £22,508 | Target PCP £219 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 £1600 on a 2.0 D200 Urban Edition, or up to £3278 on the Discovery Sport range – Target Price £39,345 | Target PCP £394 per month
On the face of it, the fact that Mazda's largest SUV doesn't offer the option of seven seats puts it at a disadvantage. However, if you don't need to transport more than five people, it's one of the very best cars of its kind – it's comfortable, spacious and good to drive.
What Car? deal: Save £1125 on a 2.0 Skyactive-G 165 SE-L, or save up to £1325 on the Mazda CX-5 range – Target Price £26,420 | Target PCP £267 per month
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 £1200 on a 1.5 Cooper Classic, or up to £2922 on the Mini Countryman range – Target Price £23,605| Target PCP £261 per month
Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross
The Eclipse name is well known to motoring fans, but many were surprised to see it appear on an SUV because it's traditionally been reserved for coupés. Still, the Eclipse Cross is a spacious, well equipped and distinctively styled choice, and we like the refinement of the sole petrol engine on offer.
What Car? deal: Save £4500 a 1.5 Exceed, or up to £4726 on the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross range – Target Price £22,580 | Target PCP £295 per month
The Juke is a popular sight on UK roads, and with good reason: after all, it's the car which kicked off the trend for jacked-up family hatchbacks. This latest version offers plenty of substance to back up its standout looks, with a smart interior and a good driving position.
What Car? deal: Save £2041 on a 1.0 DiG-T N-Connecta, or up to £2940 on the Nissan Juke range – Target Price £20,399 | Target PCP £209 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 one of our favourite large SUVs, in fact, thanks to its spacious interior, flexible seating and competitive CO2 emissions.
What Car? deal: Save £2414 on a 1.2 Puretech Allure Premium, or up to £6847 on the Peugeot 5008 range – Target Price £29,996 | Target PCP £336 per month
Range Rover Evoque
The Evoque is one of the most stylish SUVs you can buy, but there's plenty of substance to back up those looks too. It's well equipped, offers a great driving position and should hold its value very well too. This plug-in hybrid version is our favourite, and helps to keep running costs low.
What Car? deal: Save £2360 on a R-Dynamic P300e HSE, or up to £3009 on the Range Rover Evoque range – Target Price £50,140 | Target PCP £461 per month
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 £2511 on a 1.3 TCE 140 Iconic EDC, or up to £3633 on the Renault Captur range – Target Price £19,789 | Target PCP £190 per month

Don't be fooled by the Ignis's small size – this is one seriously impressive SUV. It's deceptively spacious, offers a generous amount of equipment and is very cheap to buy and run. Indeed, the Ignis is one of the most frugal cars we've ever put through our True MPG test.
What Car? deal: Save £2000 on a 1.2 Dualjet 12V Hybrid SZ-T, or up to £2200 on the Suzuki Ignis range – Target Price £13,999 | Target PCP £169 per month

What Car? deal: Save £1870 on a 1.5 T3 R Design, or up to £3935 on the Volvo XC40 range – Target Price £30,752 | Target PCP £318 per month
Volkswagen was quite late to the small SUV party, but its T-Roc is an excellent choice if you want a smaller SUV which has a premium interior. It's also spacious by the standards of this class, and has a comfortable ride.
What Car? deal: Save £1184 on a 1.0 TSI 110 Design, or up to £3970 on the Volkswagen T-Roc Range – Target Price £23,411 | Target PCP £244 per month
