2022 Nissan Qashqai
The Nissan Qashqai has been the leader of the pack when it comes to mid-sized SUV/Crossovers. But with an ever-increasing number of rivals, it was beginning to look stale in some areas…. That was until the new third generation came along in 2021.
The new third-generation model brought a host of updates including smart new coupe-like exterior styling, a completely updated interior, with new tech and a top NCAP safety rating.
Except for the entry-level Visia model you’ll get Nissan’s latest 8-inch (9-inch on higher grade models) touchscreen infotainment system with navigation and smartphone mirroring with Android Auto/Apple CarPlay.
Entry-level models get a 7-inch colour TFT driver display, while higher grade models get a large 12.3-inch display that pairs nicely with the larger 9-inch infotainment screen.
There’s a long list of state-of-the-art safety and driver aids on all models including parking sensors, intelligent cruise control, automatic emergency braking, lane departure warning/avoidance tech, blind spot warning/intervention, traffic sign recognition, rear cross traffic alert with auto braking and high beam assist.
That’s a pretty long list of driver aids available, even on entry-level models and if you skip the entry-level Visia model you get a rear-view camera, top grade models also get an around-view monitor, you can compare the trim 2022 Qashqai trim-levels here.

2022 Ford Kuga
The Ford Kuga is a mid-sized SUV that offers a lot of engine and trim-level options, including a plug-in hybrid offering low emissions, it should be an attractive proposition for those looking for a company car.
If you are not ready to take the leap to a plug-in or it simply isn’t practical for you, there are also mild hybrid and full (self-charging) hybrid options available plus some traditional petrol and diesel engines.
Inside all Kuga models get an 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system, smartphone mirroring is supported too with Android Auto/Apple CarPlay.
Entry-level models get an analogue driver display but if you move up to higher grade models, (from Titanium trim-level upwards) you’ll get a smart 12.3-inch digital driver display. The display can be customised to your liking and is very useful if you have a PHEV model as it will display the remaining charge on your battery. Higher grade models also get a premium B&O audio system.
Interior build quality is solid, albeit not as plush as some rivals, some of which to be fair would be considered premium badged alternatives.
The Kuga does however offer plenty of interior space and practicality with lots of storage options dotted about the interior. Space in the rear in one of the best in class, adults in the will find plenty of leg and head room.
The Ford Kuga is a great all-round package with plenty of options across the range, the PHEV will also be an attractive package as a company car.

2022 Ford Puma
The Puma is Ford’s compact Crossover that offers a good selection of trim-levels and it is immense fun to drive. It is direct competition for other small Crossovers like the Nissan Juke and Renault Captur.
While there are plenty of trim-levels to choose from, the engine line-up is a much simpler affair. There are two mild hybrid petrol engines available with 125PS and 155PS outputs. The mild hybrid engines are punchy enough whilst at the same time, the mild hybrid technology helps deliver good economy figures.
The Puma is built on the same platform as the Fiesta, and although it has a higher stature it retains much of the same driveability, it is probably the most fun you’ll have driving a compact Crossover.
The Puma even has a ST model in the range, it is equipped with sports suspension and packs the same 200PS engine under the bonnet found in the Fiesta ST hot hatch, it can take you from 0-60mph in under 7-seconds. There is also a special ST Gold Edition (pictured right) available that features gold wheels, red brake callipers and grey/gold racing stripe the runs along the centre of the bonnet. The interior gets similar treatment with gold stitching and sports stripes down the seats.
If your budget won’t stretch to an ST model, you could pair one of the ST-Line models with the 155PS engine, ST Line models are also equipped with sports suspension. The ST-Line comes in three guises: the ST-Line, ST-Line X and ST-Line Vignale. The latter combines the sporty features of the ST Line with the luxuries and extras found in the Vignale trim-level.
The Puma model range starts with the Titanium trim-level, which is traditionally a mid-level spec for Ford, and so you get plenty of standard equipment on all editions.
All models get the 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Android Auto/Apple CarPlay, the entry-level Titanium gets an analogue driver display while the rest of the range get a 12.3-inch digital driver display.
All models get plenty of safety/driver aids including rear parking sensors, automatic emergency braking, cruise control, lane keeping technology, auto high beam headlights and automatic windscreen wipers.
As you move up to top grade models you get additional goodies like a premium B&O sound system, Sensico leather interior and heated front seats.
The Ford Puma combines good running costs with the option of some punchy engine options, it is just about the most fun that can be had driving a compact Crossover.

2022 Kia Sportage
Kia’s mid-range SUV, the Sportage has become one of the most popular mid-sized SUVs in the UK. Such is its popularity that is has become a strong rival to the Nissan Qashqai which has reigned supreme as the UK’s best-selling mid-sized Crossover for several years.
The latest Sportage is slightly bigger that the old model and tweaks to the exterior design give it a slightly sportier look.
The entry-level ‘2’ model features an 8-inch colour touchscreen infotainment with Bluetooth and smartphone mirroring with Android Auto/Apple CarPlay. The infotainment is coupled with a colour 4.2-inch driver display. For comfort you get automatic temperature control, to keep the cabin environment at the ideal temperature.
Things get more interesting if you move up to the ‘3’ model which features a panoramic display consisting of two 12.3-inch digital displays (the driver instrument cluster and the infotainment system’s touchscreen). The ‘4’ model adds some more goodies like a premium Kardon sound system and wireless phone charging. The ‘3’ and ‘4’ models also get part leather interior.
All 2022 Kia Sportage models get plenty of driver and safety tech including parking sensors, reversing camera, automatic emergency braking, lane keeping tech, automatic headlights, and windscreen wipers.
As you move up the range you get additional tech like adaptive cruise control and top grade ‘4’ models get an around view monitor, blind-spot monitoring/intervention and self-parking technology.
The GT Line and GT Line S are the sportier models featuring unique GT Line sports styling.
The GT line grade features the 4.2-inch driver display while the GT Line S gets the twin 12.3-inch screens, both models get suede interior.
The entry-level ‘2’ model comes with a single petrol engine option with manual gearbox. Higher grade models can be had with choice mild-hybrid, full (self-charging) hybrid and plug-in hybrid engines. The top grade ‘4’ model can also be had with 4-wheel drive.
The Kia Sportage is one of the best mid-sized SUVs around, the numbers they sell it speak for itself. Top grade models can get a little pricey but fortunately all models across the range are well-equipped.

2022 VW Tiguan
The Tiguan is Volkswagen spacious SUV with a quality interior and large boot, if you opt for the Tiguan Allspace with a longer wheelbase, you also have the option for a third row of seats.
Inside the Tiguan is practical, it may not necessarily blow you away but there is plenty of VW quality, everything is solid and there are plenty of soft touch materials and finish.
You’ll also find plenty of practicality and storage, the door bins for example are extremely big and can hold plenty of items, large bottles etc. If you have just two rear passengers, they can pull down the centre arm rest and find two handy cup holders.
All models come with an 8-inch touchscreen Media Nav infotainment system, and you can mirror your smartphone’s screen with Apple CarPlay/Android Auto and navigation is integrated if you prefer not to mirror your phone.
The infotainment system can be upgraded to the ‘Discover Pro’ version with a larger 9.2-inch screen which throws in some extra features like voice control, but we’re not sure the upgrade will be worth the extra outlay for most people.
VW have replaced some of the traditional controls with touch sensitive panels, they certainly look the part and give the interior a more hi-tech feel, but we think there’s a chance some people might find them more distracting to use than traditional buttons and dials, perhaps only until they get used to the new controls.
There are a number of petrol, diesel, and mild hybrid engines available. In addition, there is a new eHybrid powertrain (a plug-in hybrid that can do up to 31 miles in full electric mode). The plug-in models can get a little pricey but may be a good option as a company car or for heavy mileage users.
The VW Tiguan bridges the gap between some of the cheaper SUVs and the so-called premium badged ones, you know you are getting VW quality and the Tiguan is a great all-round SUV as a a package.

2022 Renault Captur
The Captur is Renault’s funky compact Crossover that offers some great customisation options and striking colour schemes. It was one of the first small SUVs to join the Nissan Juke, that was for a while in a segment of its own.
We are now seeing more and more compacts as most manufacturers try to cover all bases with small, medium, and large SUVs/Crossovers in their model line-up.
The Captur is one of the most affordable compact SUVs, it offers some funky colours with matching interior trim and the option of a contrasting roof on higher grade models.
The 2nd generation Captur took a significant leap forward
in terms of interior quality, for one of the cheaper small SUVs it packs a punch, then there’s portrait style infotainment screen which catches the eye. There are some hard, scratchy plastics dotted about but for the price, overall the cabin quality is very good value and eye-catching.
The new trim-level line-up changes slightly the entry-level Play model is replaced with the ‘Limited’ model, next up is the Iconic Edition, followed by the SE Edition (formerly S Edition) and R.S. Line adds a sporty flavour to the range.
Most models get the infotainment system with a 7-inch portrait screen and integrated navigation, while on the top-grade R.S. Line there’s a 9.3-inch screen (available as an optional extra with some trim-levels).
The infotainment system comes with all the staples like Bluetooth and DAB radio, you also get smartphone mirroring with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. A 4.2-inch colour TFT driver display is standard on lower grade models, when you get to SE Edition and R.S. Line models it is upgraded to a 7-inch display. This can be further upgraded to a larger 10-inch TFT driver display, which looks great when coupled with the larger infotainment screen.
If you are looking at one of the e-tech hybrid models you get a larger 7-inch or 10-inch TFT driver display (on some plug-in models) as standard, presumably to display some additional battery charge related information.
Safety and driver aids across all models include rear parking sensors, cruise control, traffic sign recognition with overspeed alert and lane keeping/alert technology. As you move up the range there are some additional features like an electronic parking brake with hill hold assist and front parking sensors (in additional to rear sensors).
R.S. Line models add sporty exterior and interior features including diamond cut alloy wheels, front/rear skid plates and double chromed exhaust tailpipes elements. Inside features include sports style seats with red detail stitching, the steering wheel dons the same red detail stitching while the dashboard features carbon-look inserts. Other highlights are aluminium “Renault Sport” door sills and aluminium pedals.
The entry-level petrol TCE 90 engine is a god around town runner, but if you do a lot of motorway driving or frequently travel with a full load pf passengers or heavy luggage you might find it feels a little strained and be better suited with the more powerful TCE 140.
The full hybrid and plug-in hybrid are the cleaner options, the plug-in can do up to 31 miles in full electric mode.
The Renault Captur has a lot to offer, it is stylish and some of the cool colour schemes really make it stand out in the crowd. The exterior looks are back up by an equally eye-catching interior that has plenty to offer.

2022 Kia Niro
Following the success of its bigger brother the Sportage, Kia is hoping the 2nd
generation Niro can make an equally big impact on the compact SUV segment. The new Niro is set to be released early 2022 with an emphasis on green.
The Niro is in its relative infancy, the 1st gen went on sale in 2016 and now Kia intends to build on the foundations with the 2nd generation model and a new all-electrified range.
The three powertrains are a full hybrid, plug-in hybrid and full electric model, the latter is branded the e-Niro, all models offer low running costs and depending how confident you are, each one give you the opportunity to enter the EV vehicle scene at a level that you feel comfortable with.
Kia say the Niro has been completely redesigned from the ground to be more aerodynamic, it also features a new suspension system and steering designed to improve handling and comfort.
The eco-friendly theme doesn’t stop with the hybrid and electric powertrains either, Kia says the Niro’s interior is, for the most part, is made from recycled materials.
Plug-in Hybrid (PHEV) models include some new tech called ‘Greenzone Drive Mode’, it utilises sat nav information and driving history, to automatically switch to full EV model in designated clean air zones, like city centres or near schools/hospitals for example.
Full specs are yet to be confirmed but we think all models will likely get the new Kia 10.25-inch touchscreen infotainment system and probably a 4.2-inch colour touchscreen on lower grade models, while higher grades will get a 7-inch TFT colour driver display.
Top of the range models will feature extra comfort and luxuries like heated seats and a JBL premium sound system.
The new 2nd gen Kia Niro is a tad bigger than the outgoing model, which should make it one of the more spacious compact SUVs it should appeal to eco-conscience car buyers and also to those who are just looking for a great all-round compact.

2022 Hyundai Tucson
The Tucson is Hyundai’s medium sized spacious SUV that offers a quality interior and very large boot.
Inside the Tucson all models get a large 10.3-inch colour touchscreen that is coupled with a 10.3-inch digital driver display. The infotainment system comes with all the staples including DAB radio, Bluetooth and smartphone mirroring is available with Android Auto/Apple CarPlay. The infotainment system also comes with integrated Navigation on all models.
As well as being extremely well-equipped, one of the big selling points of the Tucson is the quality of the interior, there are plenty of soft touch finishes and quality materials. The digital driver display, and large touchscreen entertainment system finish off the impressive look and feel once your sat in the driver’s seat.
If you frequently packing a ton of luggage then Tucson could be right up your street, if you go for the pure petrol model, you’re getting one of the biggest boots in the mid-sized SUV segment, 620 litres to be precise.
To put that into perspective the Qashqai, one of the most popular mid-sized SUVs offers around 500 litres with the seats up. The spacious VW Tiguan is one of the few to rival the Tucson for boot space.
Head and leg room is also very good, a couple of fairly large adults should be comfortable in the back with plenty of leg and head room.
Engines-wise you get a choice of a standard petrol engine, mild hybrid, full hybrid, or plug-in hybrid options. If you need 4WD you’ll need to look at the top-grade Ultimate or the sporty N Line models. The plug-in hybrid can do up to 38 miles in full electric mode, it might to be costly for some budgets, but it’ll be an attractive company car and running costs will be super low for spacious SUV.
