Cheap, but doesn't always feel it. The Korando is coming of age
The Eclipse Cross is a striking and mostly successful Qashqai rival
The Subaru XV can manage more than many of its competitors off-road, but it's let down by its engine and gearbox
More an SUV than a soft-roader. Patchy dynamics but well finished and has good off-road ability
The Velar majors on style but it's still a useful car. It's roomy enough for a family, not so big it's awkward in cities, and capable of unusual off-road feats.
The VW faces an uphill struggle against brand laden rivals, but is actually just as good.
Dignified, versatile and quite cool. Pity the gearbox and ride let the side down
