Looking for a small SUV but don't know where to start? Here are five of the best

Small SUVs are some of the most popular cars on UK roads, but which one is right for you?

With a seemingly endless list to choose from, our motoring editor Sam Sheehan has selected five of the best used small SUVs for you to consider.

Whether you're a dog owner, a parent doing the school run, or a daily commuter, there's a small SUV to meet your needs.

In the video above, Sam tests each of the cars for interior quality and practicality, infotainment and technology, boot space for luggage and boot space for dogs.

Dacia Duster

One of the most budget-friendly SUVs you can buy is the Dacia Duster, known for its rugged looks and strong Renault backing.

Its standout features are its chunky wheelarch extensions, roof rails for active folk, and kerb-proof tyres to protect you from any supermarket car park mishaps.

Despite its affordable price, you get all the bells and whistles you'd need, from cruise control to A/C.

Ford Puma

If you're a Fiesta fan, the Ford Puma crossover is ideal if you want more interior space and a higher driving position.

It's more engaging to drive (especially in ST form) and it's great for up to five people. You also get a 410-litre boot with a secret 'Megabox' compartment to store ice for a BBQ or muddy boots, with a plug to drain any unwanted liquid afterwards.

Volkswagen T-Roc

Like its Golf relative, the Volkswagen T-Roc is a great car to live with, offering lots of interior tech and a compelling selection of engine options.

What we like most about VW's crossover SUV is the amount of head and legroom throughout, making it ideal for larger families.

And if you're after an automatic gearbox, the optional one in this is sublime.


A dark coloured BMW X3 driving near a cliffsideIf you want to add a touch more class to your daily commute or the otherwise dull school run, the BMW X3 is the one to have.

Its interior quality rivals the likes of Audi and BMW and the iDrive infotainment system is one of the best in the business.

Heated and optional massage seats are a dream, and your pooch will always feel pampered in the boot.

Range Rover Evoque

A silver Range Rover Evoque against a mountain backdropDespite being the 'baby' in Range Rover's lineup, don't disregard the Evoque just yet.

This plush SUV comes in petrol, diesel and plug-in hybrid (PHEV) forms, making it versatile and able to fit anyone's needs.

Its interior has a bit more pizzazz and a lot more theatre than the X3, offering a full-size Range Rover-esque feel for much less money.
