Want to take those long family trips away and need something that can store not only people but also cargo?

An SUV is a great choice for those family road trips or for people looking to make a statement and dominate the roads.

There are some affordable options on the used market too, with a wide range for you to take a look through on our site.

Peugeot 2008

Starting the list off strong and well under £10k is the Peugeot 2008.

The design is an SUV reminiscent of the Peugeot 208 hatchback, and with its long headlights and roof rack, this SUV stands out on the road and gives you additional luggage space and support in all areas.

The Peugeot 2008 is the cheapest SUV on the list and an absolute bargain for anyone looking for a reliable, fashionable and impressive SUV.

Ford EcoSport

Another impressive addition to the list that's under the £10k mark, the Ford EcoSport is an SUV that's great value for money.

It's similar in style to the Ford Edge and Kuga models as well as the familiar favourite Ford Fiesta, with the EcoSport sitting in the small SUV category.

The Ford EcoSport is the perfect compact SUV for your budget – the 1.5-litre engine produces 112hp and you can enjoy even intense drives with ease and comfort thanks to grip tires and heated seating.

Vauxhall Mokka X

Another SUV that sits below the £10k mark, the Vauxhall Mokka – or Mokka X as it was renamed – is a great addition to any family looking to upsize their vehicle without upsizing their budget.

Vauxhall’s answer to the Renault Captur, the Vauxhall Mokka X is a budget-friendly SUV. It boasts a 1.4-litre engine maxing up to 140hp with features such as cruise control and park pilot for a better experience from start to finish.

Dacia Duster

Again, staying under the £10k mark, we have the budget-friendly Dacia Duster.

For that, you could get an SUV that comes equipped with a stop-start system as well as roof rails for storing any of that extra luggage you have for your travels.

This 1.5-litre diesel front-wheel-drive model offers up to 109hp – a bargain for the price you pay. Think the Land Rover Defender. but within your budget.

SsangYong Korando

Replicating the style of Jeep, the SsangYong Korando has a punch of power with its 2.2-litre engine, boasting 176hp.

Its slightly heavy steering makes it the perfect SUV for those who love towing their caravans up and down the country.

Vauxhall Crossland X

If you're looking for an SUV that truly gives you value for money, look no further than the Vauxhall Crossland X.

This premium small SUV might look compact from the outside, but it provides plenty of room for all the family in its spacious cabin.

The Vauxhall Crossland X SUV gives you the lively drive of an SUV with the underpinnings of the Peugeot 2008 – perfect for the adventurous family.

Renault Kadjar

The Renault Kadjar is the next budget-friendly SUV to make the list. Offering many of the qualities of the Nissan Qashqai, this SUV is a slightly more budget-friendly approach to SUVs.

Using the best of the partnership between Renault and Nissan, the edgier curves of the Renault Kadjar and the range of colour options, the Kadjar brings personality to the forefront of SUV driving.

Nissan Qashqai

The Nissan Qashqai is a luxury SUV suitable for catering to large families and those needing space for plenty of luggage.

The large body dominates the roads without being overwhelming, following a similar design to the Kia Sportage.

With features including lane assist and an electric parking brake, the Nissan Qashqai is the perfect balance between imposing SUV looks and efficient drive, making it deserving a place on this list of the best SUVs for the value of money.

Ford Kuga

The rugged-looking Ford Kuga is a powerhouse that competes in the league of the Volkswagen Tiguan and others whose exteriors scream adventurous.

The Kuga is an excellent budget-friendly SUV for anyone looking to save money without compromising performance.

Boasting much-needed features including dual climate control, Apple CarPlay and sat-nav, you're sure to enjoy getting behind the wheel.

Honda CR-V

The Honda CR-V is the final SUV in the lineup as its reliable nature makes it a great choice whether you are buying your first SUV or you are an established SUV owner looking to level up.

Its sporty performance and great visibility make it a perfect option for any SUV lover, and with a 1.6-litre engine offering 160hp and amazing features such as auto park and dual climate, this car packs a punch without compromising on comfort.
