SUVs continue to attract British car buyers in big numbers and this trend shows no sign of stopping. These high-riding 4x4 vehicles are changing motorist's buying habits to make the switch from family hatchbacks, saloons, estates and MPVs in big numbers. It all means that there are many people out there wondering which SUV is the best to buy and on this page we have the answer.
To meet the needs of a family, the best SUVs have to be both safe and comfortable while offering great interior space and practicality. Other advantages include a high commanding driving position and, of course, that the car looks good parked on your driveway. The best of the current crop of SUVs on the market offer surprisingly good fuel-efficiency, too, with some having seven seats and all having good-sized boots.
Many SUVs are as equally talented at light off-roading as they are on the road. Although many were designed primarily for use on tarmac, with buyers choosing them for their desirability rather than all-round ability. It’s important for buyers to know which is which.
To appeal to a wider audience, many SUVs are offered with two-wheel-drive, reducing fuel consumption and emissions, making them substantially cheaper to run and buy than 4x4 cars.
