Best cheap 4x4s and SUVs - Subaru XV

 

While many crossovers have the looks of an off-roader but none of the ability, the Subaru XV is the opposite. It’s more like a high-riding hatchback with extra plastic cladding than a full-on crossover, but under the skin is a rugged permanent four-wheel-drive system.

That gives the XV the kind of off-road talent that most owners are unlikely to ever come close to maximising, and is great for winter. Even the most basic cars are fitted with air-con, heated seats and a four-wheel-drive lock for additional off-road ability.
