Advice about small 4x4 cars

Small 4x4s FAQs

This will depend on your specific needs, but the Range Rover Evoque and Volvo XC40 are some of the best small luxury 4x4s, while the Dacia Duster and Fiat Panda 4x4 offer great capability and value at the lower end of the market. 

For something in-between, the stylish Toyota Yaris Cross is a great city-friendly 4x4.

There are a number of great small automatic 4x4s on sale. The Seat Arona, VW T-Cross and Mini Countryman are just a handful of self-shifting options out there. Higher up the price range, most luxury small 4x4s such as the Volvo XC40 come standard with automatic transmissions.

While having an automatic transmission can be a real boon in traffic, it’s worth noting that most autos use more fuel than their manual counterparts and can dampen performance levels - especially noticeable when paired with smaller engines.
