Which SUV for up to €8k?

I have a budget of €7k to €8k and would like to buy a estate car or SUV. We are a family of 4 with eldest being 9. We love the outdoors and sport, hence the need for space. Midweek motoring tends to be short journeys. Weekend motoring tends to be longer drives, usual maximum of 100 miles round trip on motorways.


Hi Gerry,

Your mileage doesn’t dictate that you need a diesel, as you could get away with a petrol, but a quick check of your price budget shows that the vast, vast majority of cars you will be looking at will be diesels anyway – not the end of the world, though. Various usual suspects turn up, like the Nissans Juke and Qashqai (if you try one of these, go for the latter), while a value proposition (getting a newer vehicle for your money) might well be the Dacia Duster. However, the one we think you should seek out is a nice Skoda Yeti. You should be able to get a Greenline 1.6 TDI for this cash, with less than 180,000km on the clock too.
