Gone are the days when SUVs were considered to be clunky or ‘uncool’. In 2019, South Africa’s SUV market is filled with trendy SUVs, particularly in the busy compact SUV segment where new technologies, styling exteriors and value-for-money are all the rage.

With so many to choose from, we’ve picked three trendy new SUVs that are perfect for trendy women.

From 399 900 for the base model (Expression 2.5 CVT 4×2)

Renault’s new flagship SUV introduced itself to the South African market in February this year (2019), with a strong focus on interior comfort and sleek exterior styling. On the outside, elegant, the Koleos has a bold, strong presence with a touch of elegance. On the inside, cabin comfort stands out with a mix of eye-catching features like ambient lighting, chrome detailing and soft-touch surfaces. This is one of the most comfortable cabins we’ve experienced this year, with super supportive seating and soft padding all around!

Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross

From 399 995 for the base model (2.0L CVT 4×2).

When it comes to style, the all-new Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross is right up there with its futuristic, concept-like design elements and sporty touches. It has won a host of international awards, including the prestigious ‘Good Design’ award for Design Excellence and Innovation. We love its wedge-shaped, coupe-like styling, as well as its rear spoiler that gives it that sporty edge. It’s interior is sleek and uncomplicated with loads of standard spec like its touch-screen radio, leather seats and a multi-function leather steering wheel, to name a few.

On the outside, there is a new selection of wheel designs while KIA has given the Sportage’s already sporty look a mild update that includes a more prominent front face. Inside, the Sportage includes just about everything you need, even in its base model.
