7. Nissan Leaf
The second-generation Leaf is good to drive and well equipped, and our recommended N-Connecta models come with a host of luxuries including adaptive cruise control, heated front seats and automatic lights and wipers. There's a limited amount of adjustment in its steering wheel, though, so you might have to settle for a less-than-ideal driving position.
Our pick: 40kWh N-Connecta
6. Audi Q2
The Q2 is Audi's smallest and cheapest SUV, but it still has the sort of classy interior you expect from the brand. What's more, it's great to drive, with composed handling, precise steering and impressive refinement. True, it's a little cramped in the back and is still more expensive than most similarly-sized models, but due to its desirability, it's predicted to hold its value well.
Our pick: 1.4 TFSI Sport
The Nissan Qashqai is the car that started the trend for jacked-up family hatchbacks and it remains one of the best following a recent update. True, there are cheaper alternatives, such as the Suzuki SX4 S-Cross, but the Qashqai makes up for that price premium with a spacious and well-designed interior, solid build quality and superb comfort and refinement.
Our pick 1.5 dCi 110 N-tec
