Normally we look at SUVs based on specific characteristics like what the best compact luxury SUV is or what the most luxurious options are for those with an unlimited budget. This time, we will talk about the very best options that are available in 2016 for those that simply love really good SUVs. We are focused on those SUVs that are simply considered as being the best in 2016 at an overall level.
Many waited for the Volvo XC90 to have its new version and the truth is that the wait was not in vain. The platform is brand new and the engines are highly efficient. There is even a plug-in hybrid model available. This SUV can so easily compare with the Land Rover, the BMW and the Audi premium models thanks to brand new safety levels and a high luxury level.
If you want to buy the Volvo XC90, it is highly recommended that you go for the D5 diesel engine, a quiet addition that has so much strength. T6 does offer great poke but D5 is better.
When looking at safety, Volvo is unmatched and the new sporty design trims will make you smile. The main appeal of the XC90 is the space offered, together with upmarket interior and refinement. All seats are comfortable and even tall adults will feel great in this Volvo.
Land Rover Discovery Sport
This highly luxurious compact SUV is a favorite for many professionals, being a great replacement for the popular Freelander 2. The vehicle is more upmarket and bigger than the predecessor and features the 7 seater layout.
We are talking about a newcomer that is quite similar to the modern Range Rover models. This is true for both the exterior and the interior. All materials are top notch and you will surely appreciate the classy design.
Driving the Land Rover Discovery Sport is a pleasure as the engine offers an agile and composed ride. Steering will be precise and fast, all combined with a firm drive. You have 4 trims that are available, all properly equipped and featuring climate control as a standard feature.
Kia Sorento does offer a lot when compared with the competition. You have huge load area, plenty of room for 7 people and great 4 wheel drive traction. Although this SUV is a little expensive, you do gain a lot of value. That is because the standard kit offered is more than you receive with the competition’s models.
The various trims will feature a 2.2 CRDi 197bhp diesel engine that has a lot of torque, making the Kia Sorento great for traction purposes. The off-road ability is strong and we have to praise the power distribution that makes all wheels stronger.
