The Toyota Yaris Cross makes a strong case for itself against the crowd of small SUVs, especially if your top priorities are low running costs and reliability. The Ford Puma still looks like the better overall option, offering a more enjoyable driving experience and superior practicality, while the T-Roc is better for space and refinement.

Opting for the Excel trim gets you luxurious kit such as a heated steering wheel, heated front seats, electronically-adjustable lumbar support, an auto-dimming rear view mirror, a kick-activated tailgate, dual-zone climate control, front and rear parking sensors, blind-spot monitoring and the upgraded 9.0in touchscreen infotainment system with built-in sat-nav.

The Yaris Cross isn’t the fastest small SUV out there, but its hybrid technology makes it one of the most efficient. Besides, the electric motor does make the Yaris Cross quick off the line and the engine has enough grunt to accelerate you up to motorway speeds, albeit with plenty of accompanying noise. Unlike many rivals, Toyota offers the option of four-wheel drive on the top trims.
