If you're looking for one of the most versatile kinds of vehicle around, it's pretty hard to go wrong with an SUV. Originally seen as purely off-road cars, SUVs are now some of the most popular cars on the road for those with large families, those who want plenty of space, or even just those who want a serious comfortable ride. Of course, as with any type of car, you've got a ridiculous amount of choice, and that can be pretty overwhelming if you don't know where to start. Well, you're in luck because here is a list of some of the best SUVs on the market right now to help give you an idea of what you should be looking for.
Volvo is one of the most popular car manufacturers with families, and there's a very good reason for that. It has an extremely well-founded reputation for producing cars that are both reliable and incredibly safe. The XC90 is no exception to this rule. The technology in this model means that it's the first Volvo that is essentially capable of driving itself.
Jeep is a household name in the world of SUVs and 4x4 for a good reason. It's produced some of the best off-road vehicles of all time. However, the older Grand Cherokees which were unveiled in 2005 were an unmitigated disaster! Cramp, ugly, unpleasant to drive, they were awful enough that plenty of Jeep dealers were struggling to sell them at all. Fortunately, the newer design of the Grand Cherokee has turned that around, and it's a serious contender for one of the best SUVs around today. The new Grand Cherokee has one of the most comfortable rides around and it fantastic whether you're looking to do the school run or take if off-road for some more challenging terrain.
Want luxury? Look no further. BMW have always had a reputation for gorgeous cars, and they carry that tradition on easily with the X5. While it might not be the most spacious or most powerful SUV on the market right now, it's undeniably one of the most comfortable and stylish. The squat design of previous X5s has been toned down for a sleeker, more elegant look and the interior is beautifully subtle and refined. Not to mention the fact that there's no shortage of tech inside the X5 with BMW’s own iDrive cabin control system and a gorgeous 10.2-inch screen which is easily controlled by the iDrive located next to the gear lever. There really is no better SUV out there if your main concern is to have the most comfortable, luxurious drive possible.
Of course, remember that facts and figures are only going to get you so far. That that you know some of the SUVs that you're going to want to be looking at, the best thing to do is get to a dealer and take some for a test drive. You'll only truly know whether or not a car is right for your until you're behind the wheel.
