Not sure which car is right for you? Take a look at our Used Car page to browse through all the used cars for sale on carwow.

Here are the 10 best used SUVs on sale:

1) Peugeot 3008 (2016-)

When it comes to eye-catching interiors, the Peugeot 3008 SUV has the competition licked. Its small steering wheel and the high-mounted digital display that replaces conventional analogue instruments really feel a cut above the rest. It’s pretty roomy, too – there’s space in all five seats for adults to get comfy and the boot’s pretty generous too.

2) Skoda Kodiaq (2016-)

The Skoda Kodiaq is a hugely practical family SUV with room for five tall adults inside, or you can have it with an extra row of kid-sized seats in the boot. All models get a minimalist – if slightly monochrome – cabin that feels impressively robust and a high-resolution infotainment system that’s bright and easy to use. Having been on sale for a while now, we’ve got a fantastic selection of used examples.

3) Suzuki Vitara (2015-2018)

The Suzuki Vitara is an SUV with a more rugged feel than some alternatives and plenty of room inside. The interior feels well built from durable, simple plastics and there’s a usefully square 375-litre boot. It’s a more capable off-roader than many SUVs but is great fun on road, too, thanks to responsive controls. The Vitara wasn’t expensive to start with, so used examples represent real value for money.

4) Audi Q5 (2017-)

The Audi Q5 is a stylish, comfortable family SUV that’s impressively quiet on the move and comes with a choice of punchy yet economical diesel and petrol engines. Step inside and you’re treated to a classy, well-built interior that’s a country mile ahead of the Jaguar F-Pace in terms of build quality. The good news is that is was a popular new car, so there are loads of high quality used examples at attractive prices available at carwow.

5) Mazda CX-5 (2012-2017)

The Mazda CX-5 SUV has been around for a while now and been through a mid-life refresh, but used pre-2018 cars are everywhere and looking like superb buys. Not only does the CX-5 have sharp looks, it’s also practical and high quality inside and comes with strong but economical diesel and petrol engines. It’s even good fun to drive for an SUV.

6) Audi Q7 (2015-)

The Audi Q7 is a luxurious seven-seat SUV that’s more at home on the Autobahn than romping through the great outdoors. Sure, the Q7 is significantly more expensive than some cars in our list, but it does come loaded with bundles of high-tech kit and you can get it with Audi’s super-sharp digital Virtual Cockpit display instead of conventional analogue dials. And, having been around since 2015, there’s a healthy selection of used examples on carwow.

7) BMW X3 (2011-2017)

Surprisingly sporty handling makes the BMW X3 stand out from other SUVs. Its on-road ability is helped by powerful engines, masterful body control and accurate steering. Inside, there’s plenty of space for five passengers and it features BMW’s great iDrive infotainment system. Lots of interior space and a 550-litre boot make it a practical car, too, while with a newer model now on the roads you might be surprised by our used price at carwow.

8) Honda CR-V (2012-2018)

The Honda CR-V’s comparatively big body makes it massively practical with a 589-litre boot and the firm’s Magic Seat system – letting you flip the rear seat bases up to carry tall items while the well-built interior features lots of soft-touch materials. It’s not the most exciting SUV to drive but a stable, easy driving experience makes up for this. This is seriously spacious and reliable motoring for sensible money.

9) Volvo XC60 (2017-)

The Volvo XC60’s interior is a model of Swedish simplicity and space, and has the most comfortable seats. It’s an excellent long-distance cruiser, especially when fitted with Volvo’s D4 diesel engine, being quick, quiet and also comfortable. The latest generation of the Volvo XC60 been on sale a while now, so decent used examples are finding their way to market and look amazing value.

10) Kia Sorento (2015-2018)

The Kia Sorento might not have the tech-fest interior of the Audi Q7 or the off-road ability of the Land Rover Discovery, but what it does have is value in spades. It has a solid interior, big boot, economical engines, even if they are a bit slow, and an easy-to-use infotainment system. The Sorento’s third row is more spacious than a Kodiaq’s but less so than the Discovery’s. All in all, it’s a lot of used SUV for the money.
