The best crossover SUVs with big boots

Crossover SUVs are very popular in the UK because buyers appreciate their combination of hatchback-like dimensions and estate-like storage capacity. If your car is regularly full of children, you’ll want to know your boot can handle all the equipment that typically comes along with them.

Here are the 10 crossover SUVs with the biggest boots. If you’re taken by any of these cars, put them into our car configurator to see how much carwow could help you save. If you need even more space, check out our list of 4x4s with the biggest boots.

Subaru XV – 380 litres

The Subaru XV has a distinctive look and styling cues that suggest it’s a proper off-roader. The Subaru comes with permanent all-wheel drive on all models meaning it can tackle pretty much any surface it comes across.

Practicality is good too, with enough room for passengers to get comfortable and a 380-litre boot with the rear seats in position and 1,270 litres with them folded.

Put the Subaru XV in our car configurator to see what discounts are available.

Skoda Yeti – 416 litres

Based on the Volkswagen Golf, the Skoda Yeti is one of the best all-round cars that money can buy. It’s impeccably built, economical, available with four-wheel drive and understatedly styled. That it’s comfortable, refined, and extremely practical is simply icing on the cake.

With all the seats in place, the Skoda can hold 416 litres of luggage or 1,580 if you fold the rear seats down. You can also remove the rear seats altogether to transform your Yeti into a van if needed.

SsangYong Tivoli – 423 litres

The new SsangYong Tivoli might not be the most luxurious car in its class, or the most efficient, the most comfortable or the best built but, with its five year warranty, low starting price, surprisingly good handling and distinctive looks, the Tivoli could be a compelling alternative if you wanted to stand out from the mainstream.

SsangYong hasn’t disclosed the Tivoli’s boot capacity with the rear seats folded but, considering the company claims the 423 litres on offer with the seats up is sufficient for three full-sized golf bags, we expect it to have more space than you’ll be able to fill.

Nissan Qashqai – 430 litres

The Nissan Qashqai is a great family car that gets rave reviews from critics. It’s praised for being a very comfortable machine that provides plenty of room for passengers and is very cheap to run.

It’s practical too. With all seats in place, the boot is 430 litres big or 1,585-litres with the rear seats folded. That’s more than all the mainstream family cars including the Vauxhall Astra, Ford Focus and VW Golf.

Audi Q3 – 460 litres

The Audi Q3 is the smallest crossover/SUV that Audi currently makes but, with its smart good looks, well built interior and excellent levels of refinement and comfort, it’s a stalwart of this segment.

In addition to all these talents, the Q3 is one of the most practical cars in the class and can hold 460 litres with the rear seats in place and up to 1,365-litres with them folded. The top-of-the-range RS Q3 does have a slightly smaller boot measuring 420 litres and 1,325 litres respectively.

Volkswagen Tiguan – 470 litres

Volkswagen’s Tiguan offers some limited off-road ability, excellent amounts of practicality, a refined and comfortable ride, and economical and robust engines. It might be one of the oldest cars in this line-up but it can still compete in this overcrowded marketplace.

The boot measures 470 litres with the seats in place and, with the seats completely folded flat, this expands to 1,510 litres.

Mercedes GLA – 481 litres

The Mercedes GLA is a slightly larger, more practical version of the A-Class on which it’s based. Its boot is 40% more capacious, however, with 481 litres with the rear seats in place, expanding to 1,235 litres with them folded flat.

Even with its increased height and ground clearance, it still drives like a normal hatchback – it’s agile, nippy and easy to place on the road. There’s a range of economical engines and it has Mercedes’ traditional upmarket interior and seamless quality to match.

BMW X1 – 505 litres

Based on the Mini hatchback, the BMW X1 is a taller and larger machine than its little brother. It feels like a typical ‘BMW‘ with a good quality interior and gets the option of front- or four-wheel drive for buyers prioritising fuel economy or all-weather ability.

The boot is a good size, measuring 505 litres with the seats up and 1,550 litres with them folded down. There are some handy storage compartments underneath the removable boot floor too.

Kia Sportage – 564 litres

With its seven-year warranty and the brand’s excellent build quality, the Kia Sportage is a very tempting prospect. It comes with good levels of standard equipment – all base models get air-conditioning, Bluetooth, cruise control, rain-sensing wipers and alloy wheels. Plus, with the array of engines available, the Kia can be a fairly cheap car to run, despite its size.

Due to its larger proportions, the Sportage is a practical vehicle, not only providing passengers with plenty of room to get comfortable, but the boot with the rear seats up accommodates up to 564 litres of luggage. With the seats folded, this expands to 1,353 litres.

Hyundai ix35 – 591 litres

The Hyundai ix35 is a much more versatile machine than the i30 on which it’s based – there’s more space inside so three adults are able to comfortably fit in the back for long journeys and the boot is bigger too. With the seats down, the Hyundai can hold up to 591 litres of luggage and, with them folded, stow up to 1,436 litres.

The ix35 will be reasonably cheap to run with the most economical diesel averaging mid-50s mpg on the combined cycle. It’s also worth noting that the ix35 shares many parts with the Kia Sportage meaning it’ll be a reliable and dependable runabout.
