4x4 & SUV
Combining safety with comfort and style, 4X4s and SUVs have become some of the most popular models on the market.
Why Lease An SUV?
SUVs today account for almost a third of the UK car market. With an all-round appeal combining safety alongside comfort and practicality alongside style, it’s no wonder they’ve become an increasingly popular leasing choice.
The potential audience for SUVs these days is vast, with so many categories - from small to mid-sized to large there is something for everyone. Whether you’re looking for sporty, 2-wheel drive, 4X4, 7-seater or beyond, you’ll find an SUV lease deal at Vanarama for every occasion.
Vanarama car leasing customers love their SUVs and we specialise in all the market’s major segments. Particularly popular models right now in the small SUV category are Vauxhall’s Crossland X and Hyundai’s Kona. Or, if you want something a little more unique and stylish, the DS 3 Crossback is a great choice.
In the most affordable family hatchback SUV category, SEAT’s Ateca and Nissan’s Qashqai continue to be hugely popular, but a lot of our customers also like the idea of stylish alternatives like Volkswagen’s T-Roc and Mazda’s CX-30. A great budget option is the MG ZS, or if you’d like something a little more premium, the latest second-generation Mercedes GLA is a tempting choice.
If you want a slightly larger mid-sized family SUV, our most popular options are Peugeot’s 3008, Ford’s Kuga & the Volkswagen Tiguan. For larger families needing 7 seats, take a look at the Land Rover Discovery Sport, the Volkswagen Tiguan Allspace or the Mercedes GLB.
Looking for a large premium SUV? You’ll probably be choosing between the 3 market leaders in the Audi Q5, the BMW X3 and the Mercedes GLC.
EV Options When Leasing An SUV
Electric options are growing in popularity, either with full-battery-powered models or with some kind of electrified engine technology. This is more common amongst SUVs than with any other type of car because the tall crossover body shape allows for more space to house the bulky batteries needed for powerplants of this kind.
There are now five different kinds of EV option when it comes to SUVs. Starting with the mild hybrid technology seen in compact models like Ford’s Puma and Kia’s Sportage. And the self-charging full-hybrid tech found in crossovers like the Toyota C-HR and the Lexus UX.
If you want commuting full-electric driving range, you’ll need a PHEV Plug-in hybrid. And if you’re ready to take the step into a full-electric BEV battery-powered vehicle, these are now available in most SUV market segments. There’s even a Hydrogen Fuel Cell SUV, the Hyundai NEXO. And you can expect the market to develop much more in future years: just watch this space!
