What is the best SUV for less than $50k?

Asked by Russell Witherden

I am looking at a new SUV for $50,000 or less. My choices are Mazda CX-5 Akera, Toyota RAV4 Cruiser, Nissan Qashqai Ti and Nissan X-Trail. I occasionally tow a tandem braked trailer at 660kg. Should I look at petrol or diesel?

The CX-5 is the one that gets The Tick. You should only go for diesel for heavy towing or if you drive more than 30,000km a year.
