Top five best used crossoversBack

NissanQashqaiCrossovers and small SUVs are in high demand at the moment, and it’s not difficult to see why. Not only do they make a stylish alternative to an MPV with plenty of room for growing families, they also offer a higher seating position for the driver and passengers, plenty of room in the back and a large boot.

In fact, crossovers are becoming so popular that it’s difficult to know which model to choose from, which is where Trusted Dealers comes in. Follow our guide below to our top five best used crossovers currently on the market.

Nissan Qashqai: Prices from £6,000.00

The Nissan Qashqai was the original crossover car, brought out in 2007, and since then it has enjoyed huge success, leading to the production of its latest 2014 model. But used Nissan Qashqai cars are still in high demand, and because of their popularity, you will find that they keep their value incredibly well at resale too. If you are looking for a car which offers plenty of equipment as standard, including air conditioning and Bluetooth, has a generous 420 litre boot, and offers good fuel economy and low running costs into the bargain, it’s a great choice. Although its available with 4×4 on the 2.0-litre petrol model, we’d recommend opting for the 1.5Dci diesel to benefit from the best performance and fuel economy.

Kia SportageKia Sportage: Prices from £5,000.00

Like most Kia cars, the Kia Sportage is cheap to buy, reliable and enjoyable to drive too, not to mention Kia’s industry leading 7 year warranty that comes with every Kia car and will remain valid if you choose to purchase a used model less than 7 years old. The Sportage is well built and feel sturdy and weighted on the road. Furthermore, it offers a spacious, comfortable interior and refinement is excellent at motorway speeds. The Sportage comes with a range of economical diesel and petrol engines but we’d recommend the 2.0-litre 181bhp to benefit from the best balance of speed and fuel economy.

181012 Skoda YetiSkoda Yeti: Prices from £9,995.00

The Skoda Yeti is one of the most popular crossovers on the market due to its affordability and the fact that it is one of the best SUVs to drive. Get behind the wheel and you’ll benefit from sharp steering and fine body control. It also scores highly for families thanks to a huge cabin which sports versatile seats that can be slid, folded or even removed to maximise interior space. Despite CO2 emissions being slightly higher than other rivals, fuel economy is competitive, so overall we think its a great buy.

LandRoverFreelanderLand Rover Freelander: Prices from £6,500.00

A lot of crossover cars offer 4×4 capabilty, but many are best kept on the road to achieve the best results. But this isn’t true of the Land Rover Freelander. In fact, if you’re looking for a crossover which excels at off-road driving, the Freelander is by far your best choice. Furthermore, this car is just as confident on the road offering a smooth ride and another great driving position. However, the image that comes with a car of this class means you’ll pay more than other rivals to own one.

AudiQ3Audi Q3: Prices from £14,490.00

If you are seeking a crossover car with plenty of class, the Audi Q3 has plenty of it. You’ll expect to pay more for the premium brand, but we think it’s well worth it. The Q3 looks more polished than other cheaper cars in the class and offers a smart, cleverly built interior with a dash that’s easy to use and logical. The Q3 comes with a range of economical diesel engines and fast petrol units but we’d recommend avoiding the models with larger wheels and sports suspension – the car drives beautifully without these extra, expensive touches.
