10. Vauxhall Mokka

Vauxhall Mokka

Supermini-sized crossover models are a recent phenomenon and the Vauxhall Mokka is the best of the bunch. Its chunky looks strike the right tone and unlike the Nissan Juke, which only comes with 4WD in top-of-the-range trim, the 4x4 Vauxhall is available with a wider range of engine options and trim levels.

Steer clear of the petrol models – the entry-level 1.6 is short on power and the 1.4 Turbo is noisy – and aim for the gutsy 128bhp 1.7 CDTi. It isn’t especially refined, but features like stop-start help to restrict CO2 emissions to 129g/km and raise the prospect of 50mpg motoring.

Competent driving dynamics ensure it won’t disappoint on the road, while a modest 356-litre boot and spacious rear seats make the Mokka the most practical supermini 4x4 in the business.

The Vauxhall pricing strategy is arguably its biggest drawback, as the chunky crossover model doesn’t come cheap and is almost on a par with some of the larger models in this list.
