The SUV has become more popular in recent years, with many families opting for them instead of the traditional family estate or MPV.

The SUV (Sports Utility Vehicle) was first introduced to the UK in the form of Jeep Cherokee in the 1980’s, and gained popularity in America and Asia in the 1990’s where it became one of the most common vehicles on the road. Although they have taken a little longer to become a regular sight in the UK, the market now has some great SUV’s to offer, many of which have become great additions to our fleet here at Just Vehicle Solutions.

So here are our Top 5 SUV’s

Kia Sportage

Model Tested: GT-Line 1.6 CRDi 48v

Kia have gone from strength to strength in recent years, and the Sportage is a testament to that, winning the WHATCAR? Car of the Year 2024. The Sportage boasts incredibly stylish looks and design combined with practicality, making it a firm favourite amongst motorists in the UK.

Renault Arkana

Model Tested: Estate 1.6 E-TECH Hybrid 145 Iconic 5dr Auto

The Renault Arkana is a vehicle we are seeing more and more on UK roads, and with good reason. The 1.6 E-TECH Hybrid engine is punchy and economical achieving 60 mpg, while the nimble handling of the car is more comparable to something smaller like the Renault Clio. The car has a little less spec than others on this list, but that’s reflected in the price, giving you a lot of car for your money.

Volkswagen T-Roc

Model Tested: 1.5 TSI EVO Life

The T-Roc gives you all the quality that you would expect from a Volkswagen in every department. Just like the Arkana, the T-Roc drives like something much smaller, giving it nimble ‘Golf’-like’ handling, while providing the practicality of an SUV. The 1.5l engine has enough power with 150 bhp, and gives a respectable 47 mpg.

Peugeot 3008

Model Tested: Active Premium 1.2l PureTech 130

Peugeot in recent years have completely revamped the look and feel of their vehicle range for the better. Stylish, modern looks and incredibly light handling are a staple of these car, and the 3008 is no exception. Spacious and practical, while delivering 53 mpg from a 136 bhp 1.2l engine, makes the 3008 a great family SUV.

Volvo XC60

Model Tested: 2.0 B5P Ultimate Dark 5 Door AWD Geartronic

The Volvo XC60 boasts great handling and a balanced ride, while the 247 bhp engine can get from 0-62 in just 6.9 seconds, and comes exclusively with four-wheel drive. The interior is more upmarket than some of it’s rivals, and has a great spec as standard.
