when it comes to buying a s egg and hand SUV you need to do your research SUV’s and pickups tend to hold their money more so than most family cars so you need to bear in mind that you may need a bigger budget. If you only have a small budget of less than £8000 you will probably have to buy something that is a little old or has higher mileage. Not all SUVs are four wheel drive and some models of car are only four wheel drive on certain variants so it is important to do your research.
The Nissan Qashqai is a popular choice of SUV as it is reasonably sized and affordable but it is not known to be that reliable. Some other good contenders for around the eight to ten thousand pounds are the Mazda CX-5 and the Hyundai iX35. Both of these are known to be quite reliable and score an impressive 5 out of 5 on the Ncap safety rating. They both have lots of optional extras such as sat nav, reversing cameras and heated front and rear seats so you often get a lot for your money. Always try and buy a second-hand car with some warranty on it and ideally one that has full-service history.
