Last year, the SUV segment already achieved a market share of 29.3 percent of the total market with 778,139 registrations. An increase of 16.6 percent. If you add in the largest SUVs and crossovers, which the KBA classifies as off-road vehicles, we get more than a million registrations and a share of more than 40 percent. Not bad for a class of car that didn’t even exist 30 years ago.

The Funcruiser RAV4, the Toyota released in 1994. The baby boomers among SUVs are the compact crossovers that have long outpaced the Golf class. Their formula for success is simple: they are not too big, not too expensive, variable, have enough space and, above all, a higher seating position. They have long been considered the cooler alternative to classic compacts.

5th place – hyundai Kona

The Hyundai Kona is also an old acquaintance in the small SUV class. Already presented in 2017, then carefully renovated in 2021. Like the T-Cross, it is slowly losing its feathers. 25,975 units means less than 13.4 percent. In 2022, 51.8 percent chose the Kona Electric, which Hyundai offers in two power levels (100 and 150 kW) and with two battery sizes (39.2 and 64 kWh) starting at 36,400 euros.

4th place – vw T-cross

the vw The T-Cross (70 kW/95 hp and 21,345 euros) bets on three gasoline engines, two three-cylinder and one four-cylinder and continues to refuse any electrical support. Which undoubtedly also explains the less than 13.6 percent compared to the previous year. In this particular class, more and more customers are looking for sustainable and therefore future-proof units. After all, he decided in 2022 29,516 Driver for the VW.

With a length of 4.11 meters, the T-Cross is slightly smaller than the Mokka and therefore gives an idea of ​​its technical origins. Because it’s actually an elevated dress polo shirt, a little more adventurous. This format seems attractive to many for the city and is completely sufficient. But it is not so cramped inside, and the rear seat can also be moved by 14 centimeters.

If you opt for a T-Cross, you have to make do with rather simple plastics in the interior, which VW partially covers with colorful decorations. Overall, however, the conspicuous austerity course accompanies the T-Cross in many nooks and crannies.

On the other hand, the Polo SUV is also a typical VW. With direct direction and easy manners in everyday life.

opel mocha

The striking appearance of the model is popular.

Place 3 – vauxhall mocha

with 30,286 units have the vauxhall Mokka (from 74 kW/100 PS and €23,190) successfully completed its second full year of sales. After all, 44.1 percent marked the Mokka-e with a 100 kW/136 hp electric motor. The autonomy of the 50 kW/h battery of up to 324 kilometers and the fair price (from 37,650 euros) undoubtedly helped the decision. But the new face of the brand with the “Vizor” front design, the smooth handling with direct steering and the infotainment, which is finally up to date, also scored positive points in the fan camp.

In terms of size, the Mokka has been downgraded. At 4.15 meters, it is almost 13 centimeters shorter than its predecessor and also flatter. Of course, looking more dynamic means less space for occupants and luggage. There are a total of three three-cylinder gasoline engines on the price list and one four-cylinder diesel. Our number four in the ranking completely dispenses with diesel.

cupra formentor

The Spanish sports car is especially popular for rent.

2nd place – Cupra Formentor

The title of “Climber of the Year” goes to the Cupra Formentor (from 110 kW/150 CV and 35,530 euros). The crossover moves up to second place in the segment. The elegant subsidiary of Seat sold 32,638 pieces, an increase of 85.4 percent. With strikingly sporty looks and proven tech off the shelf from VW, the Formentor has made its way onto the streets, already listed by some sources as the most rented vehicle in the country, which is no doubt also due to well-subsidized rates. A marketing move that has undoubtedly accelerated the success of the Formentor. 65.4 percent of all customers chose one of the two plug-in hybrids. The new star in the stable is the VZ5 with 287 kW/390 hp five-cylinder Audi.

VW T-Roc

1st place – VW T-Roc

The segment up to 4.50 meters is easily led by a Wolfsburg runner. with 59,942 units sold the VW T-Roc (from 24,345 euros) is the undisputed king of small SUVs. Under the Tiguan, it plays the role of the village SUV. The 4.23 meter long T-Roc sits on the platform of the Golf and uses its technology. So assistance systems, chassis, engines. The rather modest increase of just 2.6 per cent compared to 2021 is probably due to the fact that the T-Roc is no longer new (it made a comeback in 2017) and eschews electrified units.

There is a choice between four gasoline engines (from 81 kW/110 hp) and two diesel engines (from 85 kW/116 hp). With the 2022 facelift, the class leader got a slightly more modern look and finally better materials in the interior. On the plus side are tuning suitable for everyone, comfort and decent driving performance. The moderate amount of space in the back and the safe prices might put you off. If you wish, you can order the bestseller with all-wheel drive, as a 221 kW/300 PS rocket sports car and even as a convertible.
