FORD KUGA TREND $38,890 Ford’s 2.0-litre turbo diesel (132kW/400Nm) is a good thing and Kuga also han­dles. $1600 safety pack adds auto brak­ing and blind-spot de­tec­tion. KIA SPORTAGE PLAT­INUM $45,990 Works­burger Sportage with 2.0 turbo diesel (136kW/400Nm), plenty of space and most of the Tiguan’s safety spec. Seven-year war­ranty backs it up. SUBARU FORESTER S $41,490 Blue-chip made in Ja­pan qual­ity, spa­cious, safe and prac­ti­cal but 2.0 turbo diesel (108kW/350Nm) and CVT driv­e­train is gut­less. Needs ser­vic­ing ev­ery six months.
