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.

Audi's luxury SUV is the best car of its kind. It's relaxing to drive, comfortable to sit in and pleasantly efficient to run, while the interior is plush enough to shame most luxury saloons. As if all that weren't enough, the Q7 is extremely practical, offering plenty of space for families and their luggage.
What Car? deal: Save £5451 on a 50 TDI Quattro S line Tiptronic, or save up to £8308 on the Audi Q7 range – Target Price £57,679 | Target PCP £564 per month
If you're looking to marry the practicality and luxury of the Q7 with the svelte looks of a coupé, then the Q8 has been designed with you in mind. We like its spacious interior and quiet driving manners, meaning you can cover huge distances in comfort and emerge fresh at the other end.

The X5 is great to drive, has a punchy range of engines and is available with up to seven seats. It has a classy interior, too, and has one of the best infotainment systems you'll find in any new car. All in, it's an extremely classy luxury SUV.
What Car? deal: Save £5017 on an xDrive30d MHT xLine auto, or save up to £7176 on the BMW X5 range – Target Price £54,128 | Target PCP £587 per month
The Puma is a fantastic small SUV – in fact, it's our Car of the Year for 2020. Why does it deserve our top accolade? Well, as well as offering everything that an SUV buyer could want, including outstanding practicality and comfort, it also brings low fuel bills thanks to its clever mild-hybrid engine technology.
What Car? deal: Save £1383 on a 1.0 Ecoboost mHEV 155 Titanium, or up to £2628 on the Ford Puma range – Target Price £21,007 | Target PCP £246

Land Rover Discovery
The Discovery is one of the finest SUVs around right now. It's huge inside, both for your passengers and their luggage, is brimming with technology, has a comfortable interior and is just as capable off-road as on it.
What Car? deal: Save £3431 on a 2.0 SD4 SE auto, or save up to £5079 on the Land Rover Discovery range – Target Price £51,264 | Target PCP £434 per month
Lexus RX L
This hybrid SUV offers low company car tax bills and a comfortable driving position, plus it's sufficiently plush inside. It's expensive to buy and run, however, and not very roomy.
What Car? deal: Save £3969 on a 450h 3.5 CVT, or save up to £10,790 on the Lexus RX L range – Target Price £48,896 | Target PCP £429 per month
There's plenty to like about Mercedes' large SUV, including its interior space, generous levels of equipment and strong performance. Some of its rivals are better to drive, though.
What Car? deal: Save £7620 on a 300d AMG 4Matic Line 9G-Tronic, or save up to £11,053 on the Mercedes GLE range – Target Price £50,170 | Target PCP £534

Mitsubishi's large SUV is a bit rough and ready, but it has outstanding off-road ability and comes with seven seats as standard.
What Car? deal: Save £7717 on a 2.4 DI-DC '4' 4WD auto, or save up to £7841 on the Mitsubishi Shogun Sport range – Target Price £32, 163 | Target PCP £379
Think of the X-Trail as a bigger version of the Qashqai with two extra seats on board. Those seats may only be suitable for short journeys, but they make the X-Trail more versatile than the five-seat rivals it’s priced to compete with.
What Car? deal: Save £4110 on a 1.3 DiG-T N-Connecta DCT, or save up to £3182 on the Nissan X-Trail range – Target Price £26,230 | Target PCP £314 per month
The Range Rover is a byword for luxury in the SUV world, and even though there are ultimately more practical and far cheaper options out there, it remains supremely capable both on and off-road.
What Car? deal: Save £4408 on a D300 Vogue SE auto, or save up to £13,342 on the Range Rover line-up– Target Price £85,982 | Target PCP £947 per month
The Koleos is a stylish and well-equipped choice in the large SUV market, and it comes with lots of safety kit as standard. It's not as practical as some rivals, mind.
What Car? deal: Save £5756 on a 1.7 Blue dCi Iconic 2WD X-Tronic, or save up to £5932 on the Renault Koleos range – Target Price £23,139 | Target PCP £320 per month
The Ateca might be Seat's first SUV, but it's also one of the best family SUVs around. It's spacious inside, offers class-leading handling and is keenly priced – and that's before you take our discount into account too. All in all, it's a very impressive package.
What Car? deal: Save £3974 on a 1.5 TSI EVO FR, or save up to £5315 on the Seat Ateca range – Target Price £23,486 | Target PCP £264 per month
The Tarraco is Seat's largest SUV, and builds on the success of the Arona and Ateca by being good to drive, well equipped and having composed handling. It isn't the most practical choice in this market, though.
What Car? deal: Save £3764 on a 2.0 TDI 150 SE Technology, or save up to £5690 on the Seat Tarraco range – Target Price £29,031 | Target PCP £329 per month
The Kodiaq is proof that getting a large SUV with space for up to seven people need not cost the Earth. This is Skoda's largest SUV, and it's supremely practical inside while also offering excellent value for money.

Vauxhall Crossland X
Although the Crossland X is almost identical in size to its sister car, the Mokka X, Vauxhall says the two are quite different, with the Crossland X being aimed at families who don't need the option of four-wheel drive. We like its generous standard equipment and interior space, but most rivals are better to drive.
What Car? deal: Save £3640 on a 1.2T Elite Nav, or save up to £3665 on the Vauxhall Crossland X rangee – Target Price £19,890 | Target PCP £213 per month
The Touareg is the largest SUV Volkswagen makes, and is very spacious inside for both passengers and luggage. It's also exceptionally good at towing, and is comfortable even at motorway speeds. It doesn't feel as luxurious inside as you'd expect at this price point, though.
What Car? deal: Save £3297 on a 3.0 V6 TDI 231 4Motion SEL, or save up to £10,451 on the Volkswagen Touareg range – Target Price £42,663 | Target PCP £470 per month
The XC60 offers a luxurious, high-quality interior and all versions come with plenty of equipment. The engine line-up includes the usual petrol and diesel models as well as a plug-in hybrid version.
What Car? deal: Save £3189 on a 2.0 D4 AWD Geartronic Momentum, or up to £7497 on the Volvo XC60 range – Target Price £36,986 | Target PCP £397 per month
