Best small SUVs

The definitive ranking of the best and worst small SUVs on sale in the UK

This is the definitive ranking of the best and worst small SUVs on sale in the UK.

How can we make such a bold claim? Because this list isn’t just based on our opinion. We’ve compiled and analysed more than 7,500 new car reviews from 25 of the top motoring websites in the UK to produce our Expert Rating scores. Why rely on one person’s opinion when you can have all of the top reviews gathered together in one place?

The small SUV sector is about the hottest place in the UK’s new car market right now, with manufacturers adding new models almost every week. Although these cars may look like sturdy go-anywhere vehicles, they’re basically just small hatchbacks in platform shoes and bulky clothing to make them look bigger and tougher than they really are. They’re generally no more capable off-road than a regular car, which is why they’re often referred to as crossovers rather than SUVs.
