Our Top 10 Best SUVs to Drive in 2020

Superb Range of SUVs Available to Lease from FLEXED


Motorists in the UK have fallen in love with the SUV (sport utility vehicle) and this trend shows no sign of slowing down any time soon. Many drivers enjoy the whole experience of riding high and being in a larger vehicle, often switching from their current family hatchback, saloon or estate car in favour of a bigger motor.

This on-going trend in SUVs means that there are plenty to pick from, often making it difficult for people to decide which one to choose. So to help you gain a little more understanding of what’s out there and which one is best suited to your needs, we’ve created our very own Top 10 Best SUVs to Drive list (in no particular order) that covers a whole range of SUVs from some of the world’s biggest car manufacturer’s.

To meet with family life, the SUV needs to be both safe, practical and comfortable, whilst providing plenty of space inside. A high driving position is one of the main advantages with an SUV and of course, the overall look of the car is hugely important and must appear pleasing to the eye when sat on the driveway.

Many of the SUVs currently on the market today offer remarkably good fuel efficiency, as well as having seven seats and a generous-sized boot for carrying all the essentials associated with family life.

And whilst many SUVs are fully prepared for off-roading, they’re mainly designed for and driven by people for use on tarmac, as they tend to be chosen for their all-round looks and huge presence on the road rather than to drive through muddy, rough terrain.

To attract a greater audience, a lot of SUVs are now on offer as a two-wheel drive option, helping to reduce emissions and lowering fuel consumption, making them considerably cheaper to run than their 4-wheel drive counterparts.

There’s such a huge choice of SUVs for motorists in the UK to choose from these days, with so many models available and that’s why we’ve complied our Top 10 Best SUVs to Drive list just for you – we hope it helps when deciding which one to lease from Flexed!

Our Top 10 Best SUVs

1. Skoda Kodiaq – a large SUV that’s also available as a 7-seater, making it ideal for family life. The Kodiaq provides a more elevated driving position than some of its competitors, allowing you to sit in a favourably upright manner, taking in a great view of what’s outside.

A new addition to the Kodiaq range in 2020 is the SE Drive which boasts plenty of modern features including 19″ alloy wheels, reversing camera, LED rear lights, sat nav, LED ambient interior lighting and lots more..

2. Volvo XC40 – a stunning looking SUV from Volvo that’s as stylish on the inside as it is on the outside. Perfect for families as it’s comfortable, practical and super-safe. The XC40’s new lines and shapes make it stand out from its bigger brothers, the XC60 and XC90.

Most versions are fitted with four-wheel drive, ideal for slippery and wet conditions which we experience a lot of in the UK. It works well as a family car or company car thanks to its sharp handling and extremely good looks.
