What alternatives should I consider to a used Subaru XV hatchback?

If reliability and all-weather capability are your priorities, the Subaru XV should go to the top of your shopping list.

But if you only require a bit of extra practicality and don’t need four-wheel drive, the more road-biased Nissan Qashqai would suit your needs better. Refinement is also far superior in the Qashqai and its 1.5-litre diesel in particular is very efficient.

The Kia Sportage is also worth a look if you’re not bothered about going off road but would like something with generous equipment levels and decent reliability. Some versions might still have some manufacturer’s warranty left, too.
