Edmunds says the 2022 Porsche Cayenne is one of the most satisfying luxury SUVs, with impressive features inside and out. Not only is this Porsche SUV incredibly powerful, but it is quite fun to drive. Porsche offers a wide variety of engines to choose from, ranging from a turbo 3.0L six-cylinder up to a turbocharged 4.0L V8. Horsepower for those range from 335 on the base up to 670 with the Turbo S E-Hybrid.

With an incredibly upscale interior and a limitless ways to customize the Cayenne from the factory, you can basically make your dream vehicle. No matter how you plan to use it on a daily basis, the Porsche Cayenne makes for a satisfying family vehicle or a more spacious sports car.

The Porsche Macan is a smaller, satisfying luxury SUV option

The 2022 Porsche Macan is the smaller satisfying luxury SUV in the lineup. It still earned a lot of praise from Edmunds, even calling it the best-handling SUV in the world. The materials used throughout the cabin are high quality, as expected. Porsche upgraded the engine choices for 2022, increasing the power in the base model and up. Engines range from a turbo 2.0L four-cylinder with 261 horsepower up to a turbo 2.9L V6 with 405 hp.

Only three trim choices streamline that process a bit, but the Macan is still customizable from the factory. Fast acceleration is a given and with room for five passengers, it will be the most fun you can have driving to and from school (or work).

2022 Porsche Macan: $54,900 – $79,900

The BMW X7 is a super-lux sport utility vehicle

For satisfying luxury SUVs, the 2022 BMW X7 has three rows and plenty of power under the hood. Driving is fun again in this BMW, and it has room for up to seven passengers. With only two trim levels to choose from, you get turbo 3.0L inline six from the xDrive40i or the 4.4L V8 with the M50i. Horsepower ranges from 335 and 331 lb-ft of torque up to 523 hp and 553 lb-ft.

As expected, the ride with the X7 is smooth. BMW offers many ways to make the X& your own, with tons of interior colors and choices. For those who want a one-of-a-kind family hauler, this luxury SUV does it all easily.

2022 BMW X7: $74,900 – $99,800

Finding a satisfying luxury SUV isn’t as easy as it sounds, as this segment tends to have a lot of issues and expensive fixes. However, Porsche and BMW have figured out a way to do it all and still get the kids to school on time.
