Five motor brands represented in Dorset and Wiltshire by the Westover Group, part of the UK’s largest network of motor dealerships, have gained recognition from the UK’s biggest car buying brand, WhatCar?. Helping car buyers to make purchasing decisions, WhatCar? has revealed its top 10 favourite used family-sized SUVs which can be purchased for under £20,000 and Westover Group brands feature in this list.
The SUV is a highly practical cost-effective car, and with a raised-up driving position, large boot and flexible interiors it proves popular with drivers. Westover Group brands Toyota, Renault, Nissan, Kia and ŠKODA all received acknowledgement in the WhatCar? top 10, with Skoda receiving top position.
The ŠKODA Karoq 1.5 TSI SE has been listed as number one in the top 10, recognised for its efficient engine, spacious front interior and excellent driving position. The SE version offers dual-zone climate control, front and rear electric windows, cruise control and an eight-inch touchscreen that features smartphone mirroring.
The Kia Sportage has been listed as number four, with the Nissan Qashqai at five, the Renault Kadjar at eight and the Toyota C-HR at number nine.
Jack Bailey ŠKODA sales manager at the Westover Group says: “People don’t necessarily need a big budget to get their hands on an SUV that will deliver all the capabilities of an off-roader with on-road practicality and comfort. Some of the most spacious and desirable family SUVs available can now be purchased for less than £20,000 and at Westover we’re pleased to represent motor brands that have been recognised in the top 10.”
Established in 1923, the Westover Group operates from 28 locations across Dorset and Wiltshire and represents 15 vehicle manufacturers – Abarth, Alfa Romeo, Dacia, Fiat, Hyundai, Jaguar, Jeep, Kia, Land Rover, Lexus, Lotus, Nissan, Renault, ŠKODA and Toyota. The motor firm is now part of the Hendy Group.
