The best used sports SUVs for under £25,000

The best used sports SUVs for under £25,000


Performance SUVs usually command fearsome price tags – but we’ve found some diamonds in the used market.

The performance SUV sector is booming. But with high performance, more often than not, comes a high price tag, too. However, there are some used examples which offer all the thrills of a performance SUV at a fraction of the price. Here, we’re looking at some of the best for under £25,000.

What are the best used sports SUVs for under £25,000?


Audi SQ5

Audi’s SQ5 was one of the first all-rounder sports SUVs. Its latest SQ5 boasts an impressive 341PS and thanks to its 3.0 V6 TDI engine, the Audi SQ5 from 0-62mph in just 5.1 seconds. Now if the newer model is a bit out of your price bracket at over £55,000, We think a used SQ5 would tick all the right boxes. The SQ5 has been around since 2013 and was the first Audi S model to feature a diesel engine and has had great success, rivalling against Porsche Cayenne, BMW X5 and  Mercedes-Benz ML63 AMG.

Of course, being an Audi, quality was rock-solid with the SQ5, while residuals have remained strong owing to that premium badge and the car’s excellent performance. Even so, you should still be able to nab a tidy example of some of the older models for under our £25,000 budget.

Volkswagen T-Roc R-Line

Exhilaratingly powerful and fun to drive, the T‑Roc R- Line offers the Sporty edge in a compact SUV. Even better it fits nicely into our £25,000 budget. With a new model coming in at just under £30,000, you can get a fairly new model for a more budget friendly price tag.

Volkswagen T-Roc R LineThe R-line comes with 19 'Suzuka' Alloy wheels,  'R-Line' design body-coloured bumpers, heated front seats and so much more.

SEAT Arona FR Sport

The FR Sport comes with 18" 'Performance' Cosmo Grey Mattt alloy wheels, Interior ambient lighting, flat bottomed leather steering wheel and many other fantastic features.

Robust, reliable, ready to take you wherever you want, the SEAT Arona is a great fit and with the FR Sport trim level, it really does give off a powerful statement.

BMW X5 M50d

BMW’s X5 has been a mainstay in the SUV segment for some time now. And, like the car with the three-pronged star, there’s a performance version of it too, for those who like to sit up high but go quickly too.

BMW X5 M50d

Called the X5 M50d, early variants were powered by a beefy 3.0-litre straight-six diesel – the 5 on the back paid no relevance to engine size on this occasion, unfortunately. That said, it still represents great value for money, with plenty of options for under £25,000.

Range Rover Sport 5.0-litre

Range Rover’s first-generation Sport was a more dynamic take on the well-known off-roader. It combined the luxurious edge associated with the brand together with a more road-orientated dynamic setup.

It could also be fitted with a supercharged 5.0-litre V8, giving the Range Rover Sport monstrous performance as well as a raucous soundtrack. And guess what? You can get used examples for well under our £25,000 budget.

Volkswagen Touareg V10 TDI

A V10-powered  VW SUV may sound absolutely ludicrous, and to be quite honest, it is, but Volkswagen made one and we’re grateful for it.

Volkswagen Touareg

The Touareg V10 didn’t just use any 10-cylinder engine though, rather an unconventional diesel-powered unit. The result is masses of torque low in the rev range — ideal for spooking a supercar or two.
