Looking at the Alfa Romeo Stelvio first, you just know it's the one Vicki wants out of the three. It's got one of the most powerful 2-liter gasoline engines fitted to an SUV, and with 280 HP, the setup feels quite energetic. Also, she points out that gasoline engines are cheaper to buy than diesel and so is the fuel.
If your SUV racks up to around 7,000 miles per year, it's going to be cheaper not to go for the diesel. Because demand for satan's fuel is dropping, buying a new car on a PCP deal has become a lot cheaper when its petrol-powered.
The Mitsubishi Outlander is one of the most popular plug-in hybrid models in Britain, and we don't know why. It's heavy and not particularly nice to look at, but it's doing its part for the environment. Using the on-board battery, it can go up to 30 miles in EV mode, while charing it on a household socket can be done overnight. There's no range anxiety, and driving isn't much different from a normal car, though you will feel the extra weight.
The I-Pace is Jaguar's first electric car, and it just happens to be an SUV. It costs about as much as the other two combined. Even though the technology has gotten a lot better, there's still a lot of things to think about, like range and the charging infrastructure.
