Fast SUVs That Have a Higher Top Speed Than Some Sports Cars

For many families driving an SUV is one of the best options. There is plenty of back-seat space, cargo capacity, and even the option to tow. Different features have arisen over the years to make SUVs even more diverse, and since then, they have skyrocketed in popularity. Lately, many car manufacturers are working to create SUVs that can even compare with the fastest cars on the market. Want a Jeep that has a 707hp Hellcat motor? You got it. Some luxury options that make you forget you’re driving an SUV altogether? You can have it. With these SUV options, you don’t have to compromise between speed and practicality.

One of the fastest SUVs on the market

You might not be a fan of driving an SUV. Perhaps it’s because of the bulky body styles or how high you sit off the ground. Regardless of your preference, that won’t stop you from doing a double-take when you see the 2020 Audi RS Q8. If you want an aggressively-styled SUV that makes you feel more like you are driving a sports car than a practical four-door vehicle, this Audi option won’t leave you feeling disappointed. Looking for proof that you don’t have to have a secondary vehicle for a weekend driver? Look no further than the quick 2020 Audi RS Q8.

The Jeep Trackhawk

The Jeep community is the equivalent of a cult in car-enthusiast form. Jeep drivers love their Jeeps — and they aren’t afraid to remind you. Whether you love rock climbing in your Wrangler or overlanding in your Gran Cherokee, there are plenty of reasons why Jeep vehicles are a ton of fun. If you want something that balances out the Jeep lifestyle without being as painfully slow as the Wrangler, the Trackhawk is one of the coolest options for an unsuspectingly fast SUV.

The Alfa option

The Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk and Audi RS Q8 might be aggressively overpowered SUVs, but there is another option if you want something a little bit different. The Alfa Romeo brand doesn’t quite have the popularity of the Audi and Jeep brands here in the United States, and that makes them a pretty unique option without costing you an arm and a leg. The Alfa Romeo Stelvio Quadrifoglio is a little quirky looking and a lot of power for a practical SUV.
