Looking at the Duster, you wouldn't be able to tell it's a budget car – it looks good and is incredibly cheap to run.

2. Nissan Qashqai
If you're after a more luxurious interior and a step up from entry-level technology, the Nissan Qashqai may be more suited to you.

3. Fiat Panda 4x4
If you're looking for a more compact style, the Fiat Panda 4x4 could be for you. A 4x4 with a supermini exterior, it truly is one of its kind. It's got a spacious cabin, plenty of character, and is far more equipped than its rivals. With its 15cm ground clearance, there's no doubt that it's highly unlike a Land Rover or Jeep. However, it is a budget, city adapted alternative that is more suited to off-road terrain and testing weather conditions than standard city cars. Head to find and fund my car to find out more about our Fiat Panda 4x4 used models, which start at only £2,550*!
4. Peugeot 2008
This rugged, compact SUV comes with a two wheel drive and is one of the sleekest looking within its range. Providing more grip on slippery surfaces, it's a perfect winter winner. In fact, in higher spec models, the SUV gets a traction control system that can specifically adjust to winter driving conditions, such as in mud or snow. The Peugeot 2008 isn't designed to drive up mountains, that's for sure. But what it will do, is get you from A to B safely, with a few looks along the way thanks to its eye-catching design. Used models for as little as £5,000*.
5. Land Rover Freelander
If you're after a premium car without the premium price tag, browse our selection of used Land Rover models at findandfundmycar.com, available from as little as £2,000*! Despite lacking modern technology on the dashboard, this model is a firm favourite and will be sure to provide a comfortable drive during the winter months. The Freelander's high ground clearance and long travel suspension make for an incredibly easy drive, and will be sure to tackle off-road terrain impeccably.
