The best used SUVs on sale in 2024

If you need a great all-round car, it's hard to go wrong with an SUV. With a footprint only a little larger than a typical hatchback, these models offer noticeably more interior space thanks to their taller, boxier body shape.

There are other advantages, too. For parents facing a daily battle to get kids into their car seats, SUVs give you more room to move around and mean you don't have to bend down as far as you would with a hatchback.

Find huge savings on a wide range of popular SUVs by shopping used cars at Motorpoint.

Ford Kuga

Ford Kuga in white

The Ford Kuga has so many talents, it's an easy choice for a family. Nearly new buyers will find both previous and current-generation models for sale, and both offer a practical cabin with space for five adults and enough boot space to swallow pets or suitcases with ease. You also get a mature, composed driving experience that strikes the perfect balance between comfort and keen handling, making the Kuga a pleasure to drive in almost all environments. The cherry on top is the price – nearly new examples of the previous-generation Kuga cost less than £17,000 and current-generation versions are priced from just £20,000, so you get a lot of car for your money.

Peugeot 2008

Peugeot 2008 in blue

The Peugeot 2008 is the top pick if you don't need something quite as big as the Kuga. While its predecessor was practical and comfortable, the 2019-on version brought a much-needed helping of style to the mix. 2008 owners get a reasonably spacious cabin that's just the right size for small families – packed with neat styling and functional touches to make transporting the relatives that little bit easier. The 1.2-litre turbo petrol engine is efficient and helps the 2008 feel pleasingly relaxed at higher speeds, and the unusually small steering wheel makes manoeuvres a little easier. Nearly new examples are available for less than £19,000.

MG HS in red

If you look a the MG HS in isolation, it's fair to say it doesn't stand out, with somewhat generic styling and simple detailing. However, take a look at the price tag and it might force a double take. The HS is priced several thousand pounds below most rivals in this class, so you can choose a newer or lower mileage MG for the same budget. It's no bargain-basement option, either, with generous equipment levels on all models, a long warranty and a reasonably sophisticated suspension setup to soften the worst road bumps.

Volkswagen Tiguan

Volkswagen Tiguan in dark blue

If you want an SUV that just does everything well, look no further than the Volkswagen Tiguan. This spacious five-seater is more than a match for families with kids, allowing plenty of space to convince wriggling children into their car seats. Plus, the boot can easily fit pushchairs, luggage or pets without complaint. It's not just practicality where the Tiguan excels, however – you get a smooth, refined driving experience, with light, accurate controls, a choice of efficient, responsive turbocharged engines, and that unmistakeable feeling of VW quality. Nearly new buyers will find Tiguans available from around £20,000.

Citroen C5 Aircross

Citroen C5 Aircross

The Citroen C5 Aircross is the largest SUV the French brand sells in the UK and, with nearly new examples costing less than £17,000, it represents brilliant value for money considering how spacious this model is. Front-seat occupants get a commanding view ahead but the car's showpiece is the three individual rear seats, making the C5 Aircross a fantastic option if you need to fit two Isofix seats and an older child's booster seat on the rear row. The large boot makes carrying cargo easy and, despite its affordable price, you get quirky styling touches inside and out to help the C5 Aircross stand out on the school run. Also consider the similarly affordable Vauxhall Grandland X, which shares parts and engines with the Citroen.

Hyundai Tucson

Hyundai Tucson in dark blue

Hyundai was once known for budget cars, but the brand now has a tech-packed lineup that gives you the experience of owning a much more premium car without the price tag. The Tucson SUV is a great example, with a stylish cabin built from premium materials and bold, faceted bodywork to help mark it out from the ranks of lookalike SUVs. Smooth, efficient hybrid petrol engines are available across the lineup, with the plug-in hybrid offering nearly 40 miles of electric running, and a brutish 265hp when you put your foot down. The most recent Tucson can be bought nearly new from around £26,000, or you'll find the talented previous model available nearly new at around £17,000.

Cupra Formentor

Cupra Formentor in grey

Most SUVs don't really deliver on the 'sports' part of their billing. The Cupra Formentor gets closer than most, however, thanks to a surprisingly aggressive setup that could easily fool you into thinking you're driving a smaller, sportier car. Pick one of the strong turbo petrol or plug-in-hybrid engines and you'll get grippy, effective performance that makes the most of the car's capable handling. What's more, the Formentor doesn't demand many compromises with decent rear-seat space, a useful boot and lots of on-board tech to keep you entertained when you're not using all its performance.

Kia Sportage

Kia Sportage in light blue grey

The Sportage is Kia's sibling version of the Hyundai Tucson and shares many parts and engines. While the Sportage and Tucson have more similarities than differences, Kia's competitor is fractionally sportier to drive and tends to cost ever so slightly less to buy. Nearly new buyers will find both current and previous-generation versions of the Sportage for sale, with the latter priced around £18,000. Among the many plus points of Sportage ownership is Kia's excellent seven-year factory warranty, which offers you a little more peace of mind as a used-car buyer.

Skoda Karoq

Skoda Karoq in red

The Skoda Karoq is one of our all-time favourite SUVs for the way it effortlessly appeals to the head. Things start off strong with an enormous cabin that boasts rear seat space that rivals luxury cars priced several times higher than the Karoq. Then there's the massive boot – we're yet to meet a dog large enough that it wouldn't fit back there, and you can be confident that no airport run or trip to the tip will outfox the spacious Skoda. Capping this all off is the Karoq's comfortable and easygoing driving experience that makes long journeys melt away.

BMW X3 in blue

As far as luxury SUVs go, the BMW X3 is quite common, so it can be easy to take for granted what a talented all-rounder this car is. It delivers on the brand's 'ultimate driving machine' mantra, with secure-yet-satisfying handling that makes this large family car uncommonly good at tackling twisty country roads. Brawny engines and silky smooth automatic gearboxes are fitted across the range, so you'll always have enough grunt underfoot to get the X3 up to speed. All this comes before you consider the car's plush and spacious interior, with room for tall adults, and plenty of infotainment technology to keep them entertained.
