All three of these SUVs have at least one thing going for them, but the Qashqai remains the best all-rounder. It’s not perfect, but it ticks all the boxes that are highly valued by buyers in this class.
1st - Nissan Qashqai For Well-resolved ride and handling; superb refinement; classy interior; lots of standard kit. Against More expensive than Kia to buy; comparatively short warranty Verdict Still the best small SUV on the markey=t
2nd - Kia Sportage For Great value private buy; smart and practical cabin Against CO2 emissions; noisy engine; choppy ride Verdict Makes sense if you're a private buyer
3rd - Toyota RAV4 For Most spacious; strongest engine; decent discounts Against So-so interior; refinement; sloppy handling Verdict Hard to recommend in light of the competition
