Best 4x4s and SUVs
If there was a single type of car that defines the car industry in 2016, it’s the SUV – or 4x4 as they’re often called.
The best SUVs in 2016 blend a huge range of talents. They’re safe, spacious, comfortable, reasonably fuel efficient and offer the desirable high driving position so many buyers are looking for.
SUVs are also cars that can provide genuine off-road prowess. But because they’re often bought by those seeking the off-road look, rather than ability, plenty are available with two-wheel drive – and are cheaper to run as a result.
As a car for the family SUVs are hard to beat. They usually provide a big boot, and with large doors and raised seats they’re great if you have kids that travel in child seats.
Thanks to the popularity of SUVs, pretty much every car manufacturer offers at least one, meaning there’s an SUV for every budget. ‘Crossovers’ like the Citroen C4 Cactus provide that all-important 4x4 look while delivering some of the lowest fuel bills you’ll find anywhere.
