SUV under £500 a month

When you can stretch your budget to £500 a month, there are some really exceptional SUV on offer, in fact you'll find yourself spoilt for choice:

  • Audi Q5
  • Jeep Wrangler
  • Land Rover Discovery
  • Range Rover Evoque
  • Range Rover Velar
  • Volkswagen Touareg

Audi Q5

The Audi Q range of SUV is class leading, and the Audi Q5 is part of this premium family.

The Q5 is good-looking in a very elegant and under-stated way. It's not shouty or brash, but calm and controlled, with a wealth of technology to keep you safe and connected as well as an interior which could only have come from the excellent Audi stable. Definitely the choice for those who value quality and classic lines.

Jeep Wrangler

The Jeep Wrangler is somewhat of a law unto itself. Now the Land Rover Defender isn’t around, it remains the last bastion of no-frills off-roading. With iconic looks, rudimentary mechanicals and just two engines to choose from, the Wrangler certainly isn’t what you’d call plush – but it has a charm to it unlike other cars on sale today.

Range Rover Evoque

The Range Rover Evoque first arrived on the scene in 2011 and provided a classic example of ‘Why didn’t they think of this earlier?’ The downsized Rangie came with a healthy dose of kudos and presence; creating a whole new sector all by itself.  The Evoque effortlessly blends a comfortable ride with responsive driving dynamics, whilst looking the bees knees!

Many have imitated and tried to join the Evoque in the sector it created, but few can get close to matching it, excelling as it does in every area.

Range Rover Velar

Those looking to purchase a Range Rover used to have three main options. There was the Evoque, representing the more affordable end of the spectrum, the Sport, which sat in the middle and the standard Range Rover at the very top. Now, there’s one more car in the family; the Range Rover Velar. Designed to sit in between the Evoque and Sport, it’s a mid-sized SUV for those who want a little more space and a little more luxury.

There's no denying its sleek contemporary good looks, with its flush door handles and streamlined design, you're definitely behnd the wheel of a head-turner.

Land Rover Discovery

The Land Rover Discovery will either be your cup of tea, or it won't. It's a big car, that offers 7 seats, is super-practical and offers an impressive blend of form and function; but, it is big, very big, so, if you're not keen on manouvering into parking spaces or squeezing down country lanes, it's probably not for you.

If you want space for 7 adult sized passengers, technology aplenty, real comfort and the ability to off-road wherever you want to go, then this car should definitely be on your list.

Volkswagen Touareg

The latest Volkswagen Touareg has a fully technology packed interior, comined with a really luxurious finish. It's a lot of car for this budget and you really need to see and drive it to realise just how good a car it is.

The Touareg is a  premium SUV and one that melds class-leading interior tech with good manners on road. It’s smart to look at, comfortable to ride in and showcases the very best that the VW brand has to offer.

Hatchbacks under £500 a month

Hatchbacks can be far more than a practical family car; they can be beautiful and practical, sporty and sexy too:

  • Audi A7 Sportback

Audi A7 Sportback

The new Audi A7 Sportback brings together the luxury of a limo, with sleek styling of a coupé. And it’s clever too, combining its head-turning, sinuous exterior, with a surprisingly, spacious and sumptuous interior. In comparison to its predecessor, the new A7 Sportback is following suit with Audi's new design language - making it beautiful from every angle.

Often coupés can make rear seat passengers feel hunched and crunched, but the A7 accommodates two tall adults in the back, with total comfort, something that will be much appreciated on a long journey.

Jaguar XF Sportbrake

Did someone say ‘estate car’? Not if they were looking at a Jaguar XF Sportbrake they didn’t!

You shouldn’t! There’s no need to compromise with the Jaguar XF Sportbrake, it has all the beauty of the saloon, with the practicality of more space.
