What alternatives should I consider to a used Volvo XC60 4x4?
BMW’s second-generation X3 has been around since 2010 and continues to win plaudits for its all-round capabilities. It's one of the best-driving SUVs, has a high-quality interior and is comparatively cheap to run. SE trim provides you with lots of standard equipment.
Audi’s Q5 comes with four-wheel drive as standard, is practical, well made, quiet and holds its value well. It’s also decent to drive, although it’s not the cheapest to run and the offset clutch pedal can annoy in manual cars.
As for the Qashqai, it’s the UK’s best-selling SUV for a good reason. It might not have the badge appeal of the other cars here, but it makes up for that by being one of the best all-rounders on the road. It's has a well-designed interior, excellent build quality and offers superb refinement. It’s also much cheaper to buy and run than its premium-brand rivals.
