SUVs have never been more in demand as it is now with automakers continuing to mil the rewards reaped in a saturated market, but it's what South Africans love most - next to bakkies of course.

Using the Autotrader finance calculator, a vehicle with a purchase price of R150 000, no deposit and taken over 60 months will result in a monthly repayment of approximately R2 970.

Buyers tend to already have an idea of which make and model they want. Ford, Hyundai, Suzuki, and Renault all have low mileage, and good value-for-money offerings listed on the Autotrader dealer classified - though only five could be chosen across South Africa.

For those with growing families and not wanting to break the budget on a brand-new set of wheels, these pre-owned SUV options under R150 000 are worth a look.
