Top 10 used family SUVs for less than £20,000

Some of the most spacious and desirable family SUVs around can now be had used for less than £20,000. Here we count down our top 10 favourites...

BMW X1 sDrive18d SE auto

7. BMW X1

The X1 not only carries a premium badge, which is of much importance in this class, but also offers masses of space inside. The driving experience also sets the X1 apart from its rivals, with the steering being of particular merit, since the helm is precise and confidence-inspiring at speed. While the Audi Q3 has a better ride, the X1 can be found with adaptive dampers that improve matters. 

We found: 2017 BMW X1 sDrive18d SE auto, 10,007 miles, £17,700

6. Volkswagen Tiguan

Volkswagen Tiguan

Despite not being the sort of car to set an enthusiast’s heart on fire, the Tiguan is actually Volkswagen’s third best-selling car in the UK, behind only the Polo and Golf. This second-generation version was launched in 2016 and retains much of the solidity and straightforwardness that made the original car such a success. All the traditional SUV qualities are there: a practical interior, elevated driving position and rugged looks. It's also extremely refined.

We found: 2018 Volkswagen Tiguan 2.0 TDI 150 SE Nav, 9776 miles, £18,700

5. Nissan Qashqai

Nissan Qashqai

As evidence of just how highly we rate this second-generation Nissan Qashqai, it was crowned What Car? Car of the Year in 2014. Back then, our judges were impressed by the British-built Qashqai’s "low costs and first-class levels of comfort, refinement, space and safety". The good news is that this still holds true as a used buy. The Qashqai was developed on British roads, and you can tell by the way it strikes such a good balance between ride comfort and handling.  The interior is roomy and practical, too. 

We found: 2019 Nissan Qashqai 1.3 DIG-T Acenta Premium, 6815 miles, £15,700
