87 New 4x4s/SUVs reviews available

  • Audi Q3 (2011-)

    1 Q3 ftq copper static

    New price: £23,865 - £32,245

    Audi's new baby crossover, the Q3, joins its bigger 4x4 siblings, the Q5 and Q7. How will it fare against the likes of the BMW X1 and Range Rover Evoque?
  • Audi Q5 (2008-)

    Audi Q5

    New price: £26,600 - £44,370

    If Audi's mighty Q7 feels too huge for you, consider the German marque's compact Q5 SUV - an off-roader estate that battles with rivals like the Volvo XC60 and BMW X3.
  • Audi Q7 (2006-)

    Audi Q7

    New price: £39,765 - £99,775

    The enormous Audi Q7 is the daddy of off-road estate cars. The two-and-a- half tonne seven seater should accomodate even the largest family.
  • Audi RS Q3 (2013-) First drive

    Audi-RS-Q3-01

    New price: £42,595 - £42,595

    Can the performance-orientated RS Q3 help Audi combat BMW's X1 and the Range Rover Evoque?

    BMW X1 2012 1

    New price: £24,350 - £35,085

    BMW chase after the Ford Kuga and Volvo XC60 with its very own 4x4 compact SUV - the diesel only X1.

    BMW X3 1

    New price: £28,685 - £40,300

  • BMW X3 (2010-)

    01-BMW-X3

    New price: £28,965 - £44,865

    Will the bigger, better equipped and more efficient new BMW X3 become the best-selling medium-sized premium 4x4?
  • BMW X4 (2014-)

    BMWX4 1 1024

    New price: £36,575 - £48,965

    BMW has shrunk its X6 off-roader style coupe to create the new X4.

    BMW X5 1

    New price: £45,300 - £83,140

    BMW's first seven seater, the 4x4 X5 is a clear rival to the Audi Q7 and Land Rover Discovery 3. On-road it's great fun, but what about off-road?

    BMW-X5-01

    New price: £42,925 - £64,895

    Does the third generation BMW X5 have what it takes to rout the recent success of Range Rover?
  • BMW X6 (2008-)

    BMW X6

    New price: £47,430 - £86,020

    The BMW X6 is a 4x4, but defies outright categorisation thanks to its coupe-like rear end. Read our full review to see if it can overcome the quirky looks.
  • Chevrolet Captiva (2007-)

    ChevroletCaptiva1

    New price: £19,205 - £31,010

    Vauxhall Antara owners and Daewoo drivers may find this SUV crossover more than a touch familiar. But it's a Chevrolet Captiva, right?
