What's the best SUV for £10k?

I'm looking for an SUV under £10,000 that's not only reliable and economical, but also good to drive. We've been looking at the Kia Sportage, Dacia Stepway or Nissan Qashqai. Are these the best options?

The age of the car isn't as important as the reliability and economy, but any help would be appreciated.

If you want a reliable SUV then you should buy a Toyota RAV4. Your budget is enough to get a 2010 model with less than 50,000 miles on the clock or a higher-mileage newer car. Both will do everything you need and should be very reliable.
