Our free online New Car Buying service links you to dealers willing to match or beat a discounted Target Price, which is set by our team of mystery shoppers. And no sector is more competitive than that for 4x4s and SUVs – something that's good news for bargain hunters.
These models appeal to families because they're spacious and make it easy to get child seats, buggies and other family paraphernalia in and out. Plus, your view of the road is generally better, because you can see over the top of regular family saloons and hatchbacks. In this feature, we've chosen our favourite versions of each model, so you know you're getting our top pick.

The Evoque is one of the most stylish SUVs you can buy, but there's plenty of substance to back up those looks too.
