What's the best crossover for a family of five?

I have three teenage children and have driven people carriers since the youngest was born twelve years ago. Now it’s time for a change. I love the smaller SUVs and have narrowed my search down to the Skoda Karoq, Suzuki Vitara and Kia Sportage. We will still have to squeeze in as a family of five every now and then but most journeys are just me or myself and one other. A good sized boot is still a must for PE kit bags, food shopping and the dog, so what would you suggest and is there anything else I should consider? Many thanks.

Your shortlist is pretty strong. The Vitara's the smallest of the three so I'd probably discount that - you might find it's not practical enough for your needs. We'd recommend the Skoda Karoq. It's a really versatile crossover SUV that represents very good value for money. Also take a look at the Peugeot 3008 - it's a quirky choice with a fab interior.
