The number of luxury SUVs hitting the market continues to increase. Range Rover recently released an all-new model, the Velar and Bentley added the Mulliner line to its Bentayga. With so many luxury SUVs to choose from, here are our picks for the most over-the-top, expensive SUVs for 2017.
Range Rover SV Autobiography
The Range Rover SV Autobiography features unique exterior design enhancements, an exclusive premium leather interior with unique trim finishes and the option of a 550PS 5.0-litre V8 supercharged engine. As a result, the SV Autobiography is the most luxurious and powerful series-production Range Rover in the model’s successful 45-year history. Starting from $199,950.
Luxurious and adventurous, the Levante provides the highest levels of comfort while delivering outstanding performance, even in the most extreme conditions. There’s no shortage of space or performance, either. All versions come with an 8-speed gearbox, Maserati’s sophisticated intelligent Q4 AWD and a torque vectoring system for a truly exhilarating drive. Starting from $72,600.
When Bentley introduced the Bentayga, it brought a whole new meaning to the luxurious with respect to the luxury SUV family. Then earlier this year Bentley upped the ante with the launch of the Bentayga Mulliner. While the price of the Mulliner edition is still yet unknown, the starting price of the Bentayga is $229,100.
Tesla Model X
Model X is the safest, fastest and most capable sport utility vehicle in history. With all-wheel drive and a 100 kWh battery providing 295 miles of range, Model X has ample seating for seven adults and all of their gear. And it’s fast, with 417 to 518 horsepower and accelerating from zero to 60 miles per hour in as quick as 2.9 seconds. The Tesla Model X starts at $85,500.
BMW X6 M
The BMW X6 M is a Sports Activity Coupe wrapped in the powerful body of M. Its bold looks defy all conventions, while its responsive handling combined with the all-weather capability of xDrive, BMW’s intelligent all-wheel drive system lets you lay it all out on any road—with a whole lot of pavement hugging traction. With 567 horsepower, the BMW X6 M starts at $102,200.
Porsche Cayenne Turbo
Porsche. Cayenne. Turbo. That’s really all you need to say to set your pulse racing. Uncompromising athleticism combined with superior handling and a passion for the road. This is all perfectly embodied by the Cayenne Turbo models, high-performance athletes with turbo-powered performance. With 520 horsepower, the Cayenne Turbo starts at $116,500.
Mercedes-Maybach G 650 Landaulet
The history of the G-Class is rich in superlatives and landmarks. With the new Mercedes-Maybach G 650 Landaulet, the off-road classic demonstrates that the definition of unique luxury can always be taken to a new level. Not only that: it is forever reinventing itself and providing yet more evidence of the potential that still resides in this classic all-terrain vehicle today, which has been in production since 1979. The price remains a secret but will almost certainly exceed the $225,925 starting price of the G500 4×4², the most expensive G-Class currently on offer. And just 99 examples will be built, with deliveries to commence this fall.
