With the number of crossovers and SUVs on the market today, choosing between them can be tough.
However, one easy way to distinguish them can be looking at the features they come with as standard.
Here are five cars we think are particularly impressive in this department, across all price points…
Vauxhall Grandland X
The Grandland X is now one of Vauxhall’s most popular models, and as the firm’s largest crossover, it offers plenty of space for all the family. Prices for the model start from £23,915, and for that price this model certainly isn’t lacking in kit.
Standard equipment includes a seven-inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone mirroring, as well as cruise control, front and rear parking sensors and automatic lights and wipers to name but a few features.
Sure, BMW’s X6 might sit at a complete opposite end of the spectrum to the other cars on this list, but if you value getting plenty of standard features, this is an ideal coupe SUV.
Just a few highlights that buyers benefit from are adaptive LED headlights, an enormous 12.3-inch touchscreen with gesture control and BMW’s own voice assistant, and large 19-inch alloy wheels. Self-parking, a full leather interior and electric front seats mean that you certainly won’t feel short-changed for the £57,580 starting price.
Jumping back to the opposite end of the spectrum we have Volkswagen’s funky and remarkably practical T-Cross. It might be Volkswagen’s smallest crossover.
Prices start from £17,395 for this little VW, which is great value, but the fact it comes with kit like blind spot monitoring, an eight-inch touchscreen and a host of WeConnect connected services makes this a very well-equipped model.
Skoda has built up a reputation for offering great value for money, with each of its models being very affordable for the space and levels of kit on offer.
Just a few highlights on this seven-seat SUV includes 18-inch alloy wheels, a generous speaker system, an eight-inch touchscreen and keyless start. Remember that’s just from the entry-level model, with starting prices from £26,140.
The Qashqai remains Britain’s most popular new crossover on the market today, while also being stylish, cheap to run and great value to buy in the first place, with this Sunderland-built model’s range starting from just £20,195.
Next to more premium offerings, it might feel lacking on the kit front, but you need to consider the low starting price first. Standard kit includes LEDs for the rear and daytime running lights, as well as air-conditioning, a useful trip computer and cruise control.
