What smaller 4x4 would suit me?

I currently drive a 2012 Mitsubishi L200 but want something a bit more economical and a bit smaller but with four-wheel drive, as I stay out in the country. I currently do 12,000 miles a year. What vehicle do you think fits my bill?

It depends on your budget. You could look at a Dacia Duster. They represent excellent value for money, starting at £13,695 for a 4x4 model - and they're pretty good off road or in challenging conditions (e.g. snow). Alternatively, consider our 2018 Car of the Year, the Skoda Kodiaq. They're very practical and available with 4x4 from £28,260.
