When it comes to SUVs, luxury is the name of the game! After all, why get a great big SUV if it isn’t luxurious? If you’re in the market for a new SUV for the family and you want the best of the best, check out today’s list. Today we’re looking at the top ten luxury SUVs of 2018!
Top Ten Luxury SUVs of 2018
The BMW X1 is a subcompact SUV, but it has a ton of luxury packed into its small frame! It starts at $33,900, and you get what you pay for. The ride is smooth and easy, and the handling is the best you’ll find in an SUV. If you’re looking for the sportiest thing you can call an SUV, this is it!
If you’re looking for something a big bigger, the Audi Q5 is a fantastic compact SUV. It’s pricey, starting at $41,500, but you get a ton of bang for your buck. 252 horsepower, a huge infotainment system and tons of legroom are all plusses for this luxury SUV! Push button start, leather seats and 10-speaker audio are all standard.
Redesigned for 2018, the XC60 is a great pick for compact SUV lovers. Advanced safety features are the spotlight of this one, ranging from lane keeping to drowsiness monitors and more. You can even opt for driver fatigue assist that helps with braking, steering and acceleration! It never hurts to cover your bases! Like the Q5, this car starts at $41,500.
Starting at $36,000, this SUV is everything you could want for a family. There’s a ton of legroom, synthetic leather comes standard and the infotainment system can come in a two-screen configuration. The ride is smooth and quiet, and the back has a ton of cargo space when the seats are down.
On the higher end of mid-sized SUVs, the Cayenne starts at $60,600. That might sound like a lot, but this is one luxurious ride. Standard all-wheel drive and tons of engine options come as no surprise from Porsche. The large, comfortable seats come leather standard, and there is ample legroom for passengers. There’s not a lot of cargo space, though.
Lexus RX 350
This one is the best-selling mid-sized luxury SUV in the US for 2018. It starts at $43,270, and there’s a hybrid configuration that starts at $45,695. It seats up to seven, it’s smooth-riding and elegant, and the interior is spacious. Advanced safety options also come standard.
Who doesn’t love a Maserati? The Levante, starting at $74,050 is a truly luxurious mid-sized SUV. The twin-turbo V6 engine is to thank for the 345 horsepower, which is a blast to take command of. The downside of that awesome engine is the poor fuel economy, however.
Tesla Model X
Fully electric and very futuristic, the Model X is a very strange vehicle. It’s got acceleration that beats many cars, SUV or otherwise. Its battery can carry it over 230 miles on a single charge. The falcon doors for the back rows lend that much more to the futuristic look. It’s pricey, though, starting at $79,500.
The first entry in the full-sized category on this list is the Lincoln Navigator, which starts at $72,055. It’s a beast, too, able to tow up to 8,700 pounds. That’s pretty heavy-duty for an SUV! The spacious interior and smooth ride are huge positives, too. The safety features and leather seats are also luxurious.
A wide selection of three engines makes this the right SUV for any buyer. That is, assuming you can swing the $69,550 starting price. If you can, you’re in for a treat: this SUV drives well, handles beautifully and is a joy to ride in. Your whole family will love this one!
