Best 4x4s and SUVs
Even though winter has been and gone, buying an SUV is more of a perennially attractive prospect than ever before. The cars on this list prove that.
Buying an SUV or a 4x4 used to mean huge compromises - the design required to make a car perform well off-road usually flew in the face of what was needed to make the car feel stable at speed. But the latest models, also referred to as crossovers or sports utility vehicles, use technology that means one needn't sacrifice refinement and comfort for that high driving position and rugged ability.
The growing market means there are lots of models to choose from, including small SUVs and family 4x4s right through to large 4x4s and seven-seat SUVs. They can handle the tough off-road conditions, but in most cases cosset the driver and passengers as well as a conventional car.
SUVs cover all budgets, too, so our list of the UK's top 10 SUVs includes everything from the affordable Dacia Duster to the pricey, but luxurious Range Rover. So keep reading on for our rundown of the best 4x4s on sale today.
