8 Best Small SUVs to buy in 2022

Car buyers like the convenience of an SUV, hence their dominance in sales figures. But not everyone wants to drive or park a large vehicle.

That’s where small SUVs come in. They have all the practicality of the SUV with a smaller footprint.

They have a similar shape and configuration, easy access to rear seats, accessible boot space, and great visibility.

All without the challenge of driving a large vehicle on small roads or trying to park a 7 seater in a supermarket car park.

So, what are the best small SUVs you can buy in 2022? Let’s find out!

Citroën C3 Aircross SUV

The Citroën C3 Aircross takes the funkiness of the C3 and combines it with the practicality of an SUV. It’s a unique vehicle that manages to be stylish and interesting while also sensible.

With frugal engines, a smooth ride, generous passenger and boot space, this is the ideal small SUV for almost any need.

Plus, it’s a Citroën. Few cars are as interesting to look at or to own than a Citroën!

Renault Captur SUV

The Renault Capturis another great small SUV to buy. It’s compact on the outside but spacious on the inside and captures the signature Renault essence while adding practicality.

The new model improves almost every aspect of the old, with more space, better looks, more technology and more boot space.

Renault have added adaptive cruise control and lane departure warning as standard so they are now safer than ever.

Peugeot 2008

The Peugeot 2008 is a great looking small SUV. It’s the smallest SUV in the range, yet still delivers on interior space.

It’s an intriguing design with superb front grille and light arrangement and a rising beltline. Interior quality is excellent, seats comfortable and boot space generous.

Peugeot are known for interior fit and finish and the Peugeot 2008 doesn’t disappoint. Neither do the engines.

Dacia Sandero Stepway

The Dacia Sandero Stepway has a new design that brings an already compelling package right up to date. It’s a triumph in design for such a competitively priced brand and makes it even more attractive.

Dacia is known for offering a lot for little money. It uses some frugal engines, has decent interiors and isn’t short on space either.

The Dacia Sandero Stepway is an excellent small SUV with a big features list. The new design is a genuine triumph too.


The MG ZS EV is an all-electric small SUV that has taken the market by storm. Not only does it look good, it has a recognisable badge, good build quality and an attractive package.

With a reliable electric motor, quiet drive and comfortable interior, the MG ZS EV has a lot to offer.

It has a large boot, plenty of passenger space and the advantage of offering zero emission motoring for a very accessible price!

Skoda Kamiq

The Skoda Kamiq is a great looking small SUV and one of a couple of Skoda SUVs in 2022.

It’s an attractive, angular design with modest proportions that aren’t reflected inside, where space is plentiful. Finishing is of a high standard too, which adds to its appeal.

The Skoda Kamiq offers the quality we expect from a VW brand within a very attractive package.

Ford Puma

For those old enough to remember the old Ford Puma, this is not that. This new Ford Puma is a small SUV available in a range of configurations.

It’s a rounded shape with a frog-like appearance (in a good way), decent proportions and a range of drivetrains.

The Ford Puma is nothing if not flexible, with a larger boot than a Focus and a similar ride, this is an excellent option.

Audi Q2

The Audi Q2 is a premium small SUV that delivers the quality and refinement you expect within a relatively small footprint.

It’s a great design that offers a composed ride, lots of interior space, great finishing and a digital dashboard.

The Audi Q2 is an older design but still holds its own and could be the perfect small SUV if you have the budget.
