2020s Best SUVs From Popular Luxury Brands

Buying a luxury SUV can be exciting, but it can also be expensive. The difference between a standard SUV and a luxury SUV can be tens of thousands of dollars or more, sometimes even ranging into the low-end supercar price range. Each luxury brand has several SUVs to offer, from compact to sporty, and of course full-sized SUVs, but which luxury SUVs are the best?

BMW luxury SUVs

BMW offers everything from sports cars to full-sized SUV, and they are consistently luxurious regardless of which vehicle you pick, including the SUVs. BMW has put their best foot — or rather, tires? — forward to produce SUVs that anyone can like, including SUVs for people who don’t really like SUVs in the first place.

I’ve always been a big fan of just about everything BMW has ever done, and even after the emotional trauma that my two previous BMW 328i left me with I still found myself falling for the unique styling of the X4 and X6, not to mention how aggressive they look and surprisingly good they perform with the M packages.

Audi competes for best luxury SUV lineup

The Q2 has all of the Audi touches you love, decked in modern design and high-quality material, and you don’t have to bite off a high price tag to enjoy one.

Luxury SUVs from Mercedes-Benz

Mercedes-Benz is another company known for its offerings of high-end luxury, so it’s no surprise that they have a handful of stunning and well-packaged SUVs to offer.

Same Shape, Different Size: What’s Up With The BMW X4 and X6

Everything about the GLE is modern, from front to back and inside and out, and the car just screams luxury. A smooth suspension and upgraded insulation provides a smooth, quiet ride, and you’ll enjoy driving the car day in and day out. Better yet, you might forget you’re driving a large SUV all together, because this sporty yet practical vehicle drives like a large coupe.

Having an SUV can be practical and offer a lot of space that you don’t get in your average sedan. That doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice anything, because these SUVs are stylish, sporty, and above all luxurious.
