Used cars of the week: SUVs for less than 27k

This week we've driven the four-wheel-drive Skoda Superb Estate. It's a roomy and practical car that also gives you the added confidence of improved grip in winter weather. Prices start at about £27,000 for the 2.0 TDI 4x4 DSG Estate.

If you're not after a new car, there's a wide choice of used SUVs that will get you on the road this winter. Here's a selection that we found in our classifieds that cost less than £27k:

Land Rover Discovery 3.0 TDV6 XS

The Land Rover Discovery is one of our favourite SUVs. It offers seating for seven adults and genuine go-anywhere capability. This '10/10 XS model has a generous specification, averages 30.5mpg and has done 52,000 miles. It's on sale for £26,495.

Land Rover Range Rover Sport

Land Rover has just released a new Range Rover Sport. This previous-generation model from 2009 is in top-spec HSE trim and has done just 44,000 miles. It's stylish, good to drive and can be yours for £26,385.

Mercedes-Benz ML300 CDI

Mercedes' M-Class is particularly refined and comfortable for an SUV. The ML300 CDI averages 32.5mpg and emits 230g/km of CO2. This '10/10 car has 31,000 miles on the clock and is being advertised at £23,995.

Volkswagen Touareg 3.0 V6 TDI SE

This version of Volkswagen's Touareg is one of the more efficient SUVs on the market. The 3.0 V6 TDI averages 38.2mpg and emits 195g/km of CO2. This model is well equipped with sat-nav, Bluetooth and leather upholstery. It's done 33,000 miles and costs £26,495.

Volvo XC70 D4 SE Lux

If you want four-wheel drive but don't want the added height of an SUV, you can choose the Volvo XC70, a slightly jacked-up version of the V70. This D4 SE Lux model comes with all the toys and has done just 15,000 miles. It's also more efficient than its SUV rivals, averaging 41.5mpg and emitting 179g/km of CO2. It comes in just under budget at £26,990.
