What is an SUV and why are they so great? An SUV is a four-wheel drive combined with road-going passenger cars with features of off-road vehicles. They are the perfect vehicle for a family, guaranteeing enough space for everyone. Not only are SUV’s spacious they are also elegant too, ideal for travelling on holiday with the kids. If this sounds like the right car for, take a look at the top five family SUV cars in 2020 right now. You may find your dream SUV below!
First up we have the elegant Audi Q5, there isn’t much to criticize about this model apart from the anodyne handling which may not appeal to some. The Q5 is practical, silent and has an outstanding driving refinement and material finish. The model also has a plug-in hybrid version available as well. The Audi Q5 is on the market for £39,245 today.
- BMW X3
Next up we have the BMW X3, the thought of BMW creating a SUV model was unheard of but, they have, and it doesn’t disappoint. The X3 is equipped with powertrains, which appeals to many. Standard equipment is a touch under-provided on some trim levels, but as a whole, the car runs smoothly and is difficult to complain about. Entry models start from £39,710.
- Jaguar F-Pace – https://www.jaguar.co.uk/jaguar-range/f-pace/models/index.html
The Jaguar F-Pace is Jaguar’s first SUV model. It is applauded for its excellent handling and spaciousness. For a while the F-Pace was Jaguar’s best-selling model until it was overtaken by the E-Pace. The F-Pace is a success, however like many models there are elements that could be improved on. Owners have noticed the car makes noises in specific environments and the automatic gear box seems tentative at times. The Jaguar F-Pace is on the market for just over £40K.
- Land Rover Discovery Sport
The discovery sport is on par with the Range Rover Evoque, it provides you with great visibility of the roads and feels like a proper SUV. The model is sturdy and has great handling too. The SUV has an elegant interior, with plenty of space for you and your family. Land Rover have also made an effort to reduce damage to the environment as their engines are now supplemented by 48V mild-hybrid architecture. Starting at just over £31K it certainly is a great contender.
- Mercedes-Benz GLC
The Mercedes GLC is known for its attractive interior, however, there have been doubts about its numb steering. Despite its build, some have said it is the least looking SUV model that’s come onto the market. If you’re considering this as an option because you love driving Mercedes’s be aware that it does feel different to a traditional Mercedes-Benz. With starting prices at around the £39K, it may be worthwhile looking at a used Mercedes from an approved dealer.
