I want to replace my SUV with a smaller crossover. What do you advise?

I have a 2017 Nissan X-Trail with 35k miles. I love it but I'm finding it just too big. However, I want to retain the high driving position, heated seats and power tailgate. I'd only be able to add a couple grand to whatever I get for the X-Trail in part-exchange. Any suggestions? I'm appreciative of any advice offered. Thank you.

We'd recommend a Skoda Karoq. It's a great crossover SUV that represents excellent value for money. A powered tailgate is standard on high-spec SportLine and Edition models, but is offered as an option on the rest of the range. Alternatively, look at a Peugeot 3008. It comes with an electric tailgate on the top-spec GT Premium, but it's available as an option on the Allure Premium and GT.
