What alternatives should I consider to a used Volvo XC40 estate?
The BMW X1 in its latest guise is a deservedly popular SUV, with a spacious, practical and high-quality interior. You also get a fine-handling car and the great iDrive infotainment system. It’s not the quietest car, but it does feel larger than the XC40.
The Volkswagen Tiguan is one of the best-selling cars in this segment. It has a spacious and practical interior, is good to drive and has plenty of kit as standard. Against that, the diesel engines are gruff and it’s quite pricey, even used.
