When purchasing a luxury vehicle, you’re investing your money and safety. SUV owners want a dependable car that will cost less to maintain. You can trust it will hold up over the years without a decrease in performance. Sources like J.D. Power and Consumer Reports frequently test vehicles to determine reliability and safety. Here are the most reliable luxury SUVs of 2019.
2019 Mercedes Benz GLC
Consumer Reports receives good feedback about the Mercedes-Benz GLC — and for good reason. It has two drivetrains and a good selection of engine options. The base GLC comes with a 241 hp 2.0-liter engine with excellent acceleration. Other trims have more powerful engines, like the V8 capable of 503 horsepower for the GLC 63 and S Coupe.
Each model is fuel-efficient, easy to handle, and safe to drive. Passengers feel comfortable in its luxurious interior, although the coupe models have smaller storage capacity. An Off-Road Engineering package is available with downhill speed regulation and five drive modes for any terrain.
2019 BMW XI
Each standard BMW X1 comes with a selection of safety features. Drivers enjoy parking sensors, lane-departure warning, automatic high-beams, and forward-collision warning. It only has one engine option, a 2.0-liter with an output of 228 horsepower. But it delivers in terms of power and speed, going from 0 to 60 in 6.3 seconds.
The BMW X1’s cornering ability is top-notch, with power-assisted steering for easier turns of the wheel. It also has a better fuel economy than some competitors, averaging 23 mpg in the city and 32 mpg on highway roads.
2019 Toyota Land Cruiser
The Land Cruiser is widely known as one of the best SUVs. Its 2016 redesign made it more appealing than ever, with updated wheels and a more muscular look. Its V8 381-hp engine may not get the best gas mileage, but it has great acceleration.
The Land Cruiser is one of the safest cars for all terrains. Developed with offroading in mind, it comes equipped with multi-terrain select mode for suspension, low-speed crawl control, and a multi-terrain monitor.
2019 Porsche Macan
The Macan handles better than most crossovers, with steady suspension and highly responsive brakes. It has a cramped back seat and tiny cargo hold, but it makes up for this with power and reliability. It may not look like a sports car, but it’s surprisingly fast. Consumers can choose between a turbocharged 248 hp engine and a turbocharged V6 capable of 348 hp.
2019 Acura RDX
The Acura RDX received a new design for 2019, and this is not the only thing that improved. The newest Acura has a turbocharged four-cylinder 2.0-liter capable of 272 hp, making it faster than some competitors. The RDX comes with both all-wheel and four-wheel drive. In addition to smooth handling and braking, the base version is even safer due to traction control, emergency brakes, lane-keeping assist, and lane-departure warning.
