Top Gear’s top five baby SUVs

  1. Ford B-Max 1.0T

    £16,795, 125bhp, 147lb ft, 0-62mph 11.2secs, vmax 117mph, 57.7mpg, CO2 114g/km

    Essentially it’s a fat Fiesta. But the sliding rear doors and lack of a B-pillar make it very easy to load children into the back.

  2. Vauxhall Meriva 1.7 CDTI S

    £18,990, 100bhp, 221lb ft, 0-62mph 9.9secs, vmax 155mph, 53.3mpg, CO2 139g/km

    How do you make a small Vauxhall people mover more exciting? Add suicide rear doors. Just be careful not to take them too literally.

  3. Honda Jazz 1.4 I-VTEC EX

    £15,380, 98bhp, 94lb ft, 0-62mph 11.8secs, vmax 113mph, 50.4mpg, CO2 129g/km

    Pensioners absolutely adore this thing. And with all that clever engineering for not very much money, so should everyone else. Except they don’t. Shame.

  4. Mercedes B180 CDI

    £22,340, 109bhp 191lb ft, 0-62mph 11.6secs, vmax 118mph, 74.3mpg, CO2 108g/km

    We never rated the old B. Thankfully this one’s much better, and especially useful for those Waitrose runs when falafel stocks are running dangerously low.

  5. Citroen C3 Picasso 1.6 HDI VTR

    £15,755, 90bhp, 169lb ft, 0-62mph 13.5secs, vmax 108mph, 68.9mpg, CO2 107g/km

    The Picasso reminds us of when French cars were a bit weird, in a good way. Here’s one for families with a sense of humour.
