Top Luxury SUVs

by Calyn Ehid

SUVs offer a number of useful features, including flexible cargo space, elevated driving position and all-wheel drive. All of these make it a useful vehicle no matter where you live. There are multiple styles of SUVs available, but as of writing, over 60% of estimated SUVs on the road are luxury SUVs. Luxury SUVs are a little more expensive than other comparable vehicles, but the additional perks are well worth the price. SUVs are made with superior materials. With how popular SUVs are, there is no shortage of brands to choose from, but some of the top models are listed below.

Mercedes-Benz GLB

The newest Mercedes-Benz GLB combines old and new features. The old focuses on the style, with the GLB having a classic boxier style, more akin to the older SUV brands. The new brings in modern luxury features, including fully heated seats, monitoring for blind spots, automatically dimming mirrors, keyless entry and infotainment display sets. There is also options for a third row, all-wheel drive and other safety enhancements.

The GLB has a turbocharged 2.0L engine, with a maximum horsepower of 221, boasting an acceleration from 0 to 60 mph in under 10 seconds. Another big benefit is the price, with the GLB coming in as one of the lower priced luxury SUVs on the market. If you are interested in a safe, easy to control SUV with a sleek look and plenty of amenities, the Mercedes-Benz GLB is an excellent choice.

Lexus RX

In previous years, the Lexus RX topped the charts of best-selling SUVs. The newest model lives up to the hype, building on the popularity of the previous models. The RX has the same V6 motor and hybrid drivetrain as the previous models. It features updated stabilizer bars, better adaptive steering and sharpened headlamps, with nighttime cyclist detection. If you were happy with the RX from previous years, you will not be disappointed with the newest model. In terms of style, the newest model is similar to the previous year. The biggest change is the completely redesigned front bumper.

Volvo XC60 T8 Polestar

There are many drivers who want to make the switch to an eco-friendly car, but are disappointed with the usual options for hybrid vehicles, especially among luxury SUVs. Volvo’s Polestar introduces a hybrid car, which focuses on sustaining the environment without sacrificing vehicle quality. The Polestar is modeled after classic race cars. It features a gorgeous blacked-out trim, with gold-trimmed calipers and seatbelts. Because it is a hybrid vehicle, it is hard to find a more fuel-efficient SUV.

Maserati Levante

Maserati is a well-known name among car enthusiasts, with the vehicles easily recognizable by their gorgeous Italian exteriors. The Levante features a bold front design, with the trademark Maserati trident visible along the grille. While the Levante has many of the charms associated with older vehicles, it still uses modern technology, featuring the latest in LED lights. There is also an optional quad exhaust system available.

The interior of the car is just as flattering as the outside. The seats are upholstered with soft leather and Ermenegildo Zegna silk. The cabin is decorated with carefully polished wood, giving the vehicle a sophisticated look. While it is one of the pricier SUVs on the market, it is worth paying extra if you want a vehicle you can proudly display on the road.

Porsche Macan

For many, the biggest appeal of buying an SUV is the extra space, but some drivers are more concerned with practicality and how the SUV handles. The Macan is about as compact as you can get with a vehicle while still being classified as an SUV. The Macan’s biggest claim to fame is how well it handles on the road, in no small part because of a Sporty suspension and adaptive dampers to give drivers optimal control no matter the road conditions. The Macan has a greater focus on fuel efficiency than other SUVs, but it still boasts a powerful turbocharged four-cylinder engine, with turbo V6 and 348 horsepower.


If you are interested in a luxury SUV with the latest technology, look no further than the BMW X5. Some of the key features of the BMW X5 include adaptive cruise control, top of the line pedestrian detecting, an automatic emergency brake system and blind spot monitoring. Some of the newest features added this year also include forward collision and lane departure warnings, as well as a rear cross traffic alert. For families, it boasts some of the largest cargo space among SUVs, making it a great vacationing vehicle.

Audi RS Q8

In terms of raw power, it is difficult to find an SUV that compares to the RS Q8. Thanks to the 4.0L twin-turbo V8 engine, the RS Q8 can accelerate from 0-60 in under five seconds. Not only is it fast, but it features Quattro all-wheel driving and utilizes both all-wheel steering and damper-tuning tech to give you total control on the road. The interior of the vehicle is enhanced with Nappa leather and cutting-edge touch screens.

Lincoln Navigator

There are many SUV owners who do not care about how well their SUV handles on the road, because for them, they spend more time exploring off road. In previous years, the Lincoln Navigator was praised for how well it handled off road. The newest model handles just as well, but it has a few extra features, such as power running boards, heated seats and a wireless charging pad. The newest version also has better blind-spot and pedestrian detection, thanks to the 360-view cameras.

Lamborghini Urus

It is rare to find a vehicle known not only for speed, but also for how well it handles off-road. The Lamborghini Urus was built with the spirit of the older Lamborghini models in mind, focusing on a fast vehicle you can take wherever you want. The engine boasts 641 horsepower, while the larger, angular wheels and four quad mortar pipes ensure excellent handling whether you are driving down a paved road or a muddy dirt road.

Mercedes-Maybach GLS

At a glance, the Mercedes-Maybach GLS may not stand out compared to the other SUVs on the market. The GLS was built with vacationing in mind, but not the typical family trips. The back row was removed in the newest model, leaving much more legroom for the front seats. In the back, there are fold out tables, letting you pull over and create a comfortable cabin space whenever you need a break from driving.
