Whatever you’re after from your 4×4, you’ll find something to meet your needs.
1. Volvo XC90
Volvo’s venerable XC90 has only just been replaced by a new model. The previous generation car had been on sale since 2002 making a great used buy because there are so many to choose from on the market and it offers great value for money. It’s got the go-anywhere ability offered by four-wheel drive, it can tow an impressive 2250kg and it offers an exceptional level of practicality. Seven seats come as standard and it’s the only SUV that can accommodate three child seats in the middle row; all three seats slide and adjust independently, too. Check the electric mirrors work as they should and if the diesel engine has trouble starting, walk away; it could indicate an issue with the injectors that are very expensive to fix.
Our pick: Volvo XC90 2.4 D5 SE Lux
