Used Car of the Year Awards contenders: luxury SUVs

You’ll have to wait until 30 September for the winners of the 2021 What Car? Used Car of the Year Awards to be announced, but you can get a preview of the top contenders here...

Volkswagen Touareg

The previous-generation Touareg has often been overlooked as a luxury SUV choice, so depreciation has tended to be savage. This is great for second-hand buyers, because you can get a highly specified example with a creamy smooth 3.0-litre V6 diesel for not a lot of money.

Volvo XC90 front three quarters

Despite our relatively small budget for a luxury vehicle, you can still get a current-shape example of the Volvo XC90. Here's a car that's not only practical (those rearmost seats are even accommodating for adults), but it also has all the latest safety technology to help keep you and your family safe.

Used BMW X5 front corner

Let's face it, most who drive a luxury SUV never leave the Tarmac, so you might as well drive one of the best-handling vehicles of its type, and that's where the BMW X5 comes in. Here's a highly desirable SUV that can outhandle most smaller family cars and has a fantastic range of engines that make it pretty quick - despite its size and weight.

Land Rover Discovery front three quarters

You have to admit that the latest Discovery is an awful lot of car for the money as a used purchase. Not only is it physically huge, but you can also get seven grown adults in it and cover vast distances in supreme comfort. Plus, few others are as capable off-road.

Audi Q7 front cornering - 67-plate car

Ask us to name the car that does it all and the second-generation Audi Q7 would probably be the first that springs to mind. It's so capable, in fact, that it has often seemed a bit of a bargain for the near £60,000 a 2017 example cost when new, so imagine what good value that same car is today at less than £35,000.

New Mercedes-AMG GLC 63 vs Porsche Macan

For many, the Macan has been the gateway into Porsche ownership, so there are lots of examples around for you to choose from. It's great to drive, as you might expect, and most first owners spent thousands on optional extras (none of which makes it any more valuable - just more sellable) so you could get even more for your money.   

BMW X5 xDrive40e front - black

Yes, this is the second BMW X5 mentioned here, but this one is the current-shape car, representing a significant saving against a new one. You can't get the fantastic plug-in hybrid for this money, but the 3.0-litre diesel is a stonking engine that's both quick and efficient.

2020 Range Rover Velar P250 R-Dynamic SE driving

If you find the regular Range Rover a bit too upright and the Range Rover Sport too Premier League football, perhaps a sleek Velar might be more your thing. The interior is plush, and when equipped with one of the impressive V6 engines, the Velar is wonderfully refined.

Range Rover Sport

The Range Rover Sport is intended to be the most athletic version of the Range Rover family, and it holds its own with the Porsche Cayennes and BMW X5s of this world. However, thanks to trick adjustable suspension and a fiendishly complex traction management system, it will sail past those two rivals when they get stuck off-road.
