‘This month, we’ve rated every SUV and looked closely at class leaders’ Recently released figures from the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders show that sales of new cars in the UK shrank for the third consecutive year in 2019. However, SUVs continue to buck this downward trend and it’s easy to see why. Once, these tough-looking vehicles were expensive to run and crude to drive, but today the best combine efficiency with style and are as comfortable as they are spacious. What’s more, with so many brands recognising the potential for attracting new customers, there’s now a huge variety of models to choose from.

family suvs

Range Rover Evoque Our pick D180 S List price £39,015 Target Price £37,286 Target PCP £363 MPG 41.3 CO2 145g/km For High-quality interior; comfortable ride; quiet cruising manners; superb resale values. Against So-so fuel economy and emissions; Land Rover’s reliability record. WHAT CAR? SAYS IF WE HAD reservations about the original Range Rover Evoque, we have no such qualms about the latest one. Pretty much all of the gaps in the previous model’s armoury have now been plugged, to the extent that it’s now the best family SUV on sale. With a design that stays faithful to the original, but with flourishes taken from other glamorous Range Rovers such as the Velar, the Evoque looks better than ever. So does the interior, which is a match for anything else in the class, with gorgeous…

Well, not necessarily. The Peugeot 5008 will cost you roughly half as much as an Audi Q7 or a Volvo XC90, yet it offers many of the same virtues:…
