Performance SUVs

Many high-performance SUVs offer acceleration figures that match supercars of not that long ago, but be mindful of the running costs that can result.

Even when it builds a family‑friendly SUV, Porsche still pushes the performance boundary. The Cayenne Turbo GT Coupe is the German brand’s take on the same extreme SUV class as the Lamborghini Urus (the two even share mechanical DNA).

Is Lamborghini's best car an SUV? The Berry family thinks so after the new Urus came to stay.


03.
Porsche Macan

$99,999
7.1/10
From
$99,999

Porsche's SUVs, the Cayenne and Macan, are by far the most popular models the famous German maker offers. But sports cars are in this brand's DNA, so no surprise a 'T' version of the Macan has arrived with specific tuning of the engine and suspension to dial up driver engagement.


04.
BMW X6
From
$140,900
8.3/10
From
$140,900

The facelifted BMW X6 xDrive40i M Sport sees changes to its technology, design and engine but how does it handle family life compared to its luxury rivals?


05.
Alfa Romeo Stelvio
From
$77,950
7.1/10
From
$77,950

The Alfa Romeo Stelvio Veloce has a performance factor that can't be ignored but while it has seen a minor facelift, is that enough to make it a contender against its tough competition?
