1

Volvo XC40

Inside and out, the XC40 is refreshingly different yet achingly on-trend, and is about the best car in its class, which is saying something given that it includes rivals like the BMW X2, bew Range Rover Evoque, Jaguar E-Pace and the latest Audi Q3. It's not cheap but it is well equipped as standard.

Kia Sportage

Since the latest Kia Sportage came in 2016, it's become the firm's best-selling car in the UK. Yup, Kia sells more Sportages than it does Picanto and Ceed models. And for good reason. It's an impressively comfortable car, offering decent refinement and excellent ride quality. Plus of course there's the seven year warranty.

Suzuki Vitara

Although it's a competitive market, the Suzuki Vitara is slightly different to its peers. It's marginally bigger and therefore more practical plus it is also surprisingly good to drive. It may not be as stylish as other small SUVs nor as desirable, but we think the smart money would go on the Vitara every time.

Nissan Qashqai

Built in Sunderland, the Qashqai is a favourite crossover in the UK and there are few models that can match its all-round appeal. Updated for 2019, the Qashqai is available with a 1.3-litre petrol engine producing either 140PS or 160PS - both of which are impressive.

Hyundai Tucson

The Tucson is a good value crossover that's practical and easy to live with. What's more, if you opt for one of the lower trim models - like SE Nav - you'll get a well-equipped car that will give all of the practically, comfort and refinement of a premium car, but for a fraction of the price.

Honda HR-V

Based on the clever Jazz, the HR-V packs practicality and features into a compact space, is good to drive and boasts affordable running costs. It makes a very strong case for itself as an all-rounder for small families. The diesel option is the 1.6-litre i-DTEC but the 1.5-litre VTEC is the one we'd recommend.

Ford Kuga

One of the best selling crossovers in the UK, the Kuga has enjoyed success its larger counterpart, the Edge, did not. Its popularity is down to the fact this is a very well finished, comfortable yet good to drive family car. The interior has been much improved over the years but remains spacious with plenty of storage.

SEAT Ateca

The Ateca may use the same base as the Volkswagen Tiguan, but it has a much more affordable list price compared to its German counterpart. It's not just value that has made this popular though - like the Volkswagen it is well built and has the same impressive TSI petrol engines, plus lots of interior room.

Peugeot 2008

As a family car, the Peugeot 2008 is usefully practical, despite its small size, with a decent boot and good interior room, especially in the back. Thanks to a raised driving position it's also easy to drive in town while all the engines are economical, making the 2008 cheap to run.

Skoda Karoq

While there's no shortage of choice if you're after a family crossover, the Karoq manages to stand out. It feels a quality vehicle, the interior is excellent and it's good to drive too. Top models are pricey but the Karoq competes well with rivals like the Peugeot 3008 on price and standard specification.
