SEAT Ateca

The world is not short of crossovers - indeed they're the most popular type of car on HonestJohn.co.uk - so it's even more impressive that the new Ateca, SEAT's first crossover, is proving so popular on the site. It uses the same base as the latest Volkswagen Tiguan but represents a lot more car for the money with lower prices yet still good levels of standard equipment. That said, you're still looking at the best part of £23k for a decent model.

Easy to drive and quiet on the move, the Ateca ticks all the right boxes as family transport helped by a big and user-friendly boot, rear seats with lots of leg room plus wide opening doors. It certainly feels more spacious than a Nissan Qashqai. If you're not covering big mileages, the 1.4 TSI is the one to go for.

As someone who'se had a crossover for almost 15 years I have to admit the advantage of great view you used to have past and over other cars is gone as every other car seems to be the same height as me these days - you can still look in to the fields I guess when in a traffic jam
