top luxury suvs

It’s easy to see what sets a luxury SUV apart from the rest. This top-of-the-line automobile offers all of the bells and whistles you could want in a car. Leather seats, rear-seat entertainment systems, keyless entry and powerlift gates are not uncommon in this class. Extra bonuses like a heated steering wheel or heated seats can also be found in some models. Because of all of the extra amenities you are getting with this class, you can expect to spend more for a luxury SUV than you would your non-luxury models. You may be able to find certain models that start around $32,000, but this type of car can go for more than $100,000.

Even though the price can get a little high, many people still decide to get a luxury SUV strictly because of its more stylish appearance. When the wow-factor of an automobile is important to you, the luxury will not disappoint. High-end car manufacturers, such as Jaguar, Mercedes, Bentley, BMW and Porsche, have made their mark on the SUV style by creating luxury models.

Because of the extra class offered by a luxury SUV, it is not uncommon for professional men and women to gravitate towards this type of sport utility vehicle. While those with children may be drawn to it because of the extra seating space, someone without children may simply like the look of the high-end models. Safety features are another characteristic that draw buyers to this more expensive vehicle. While some non-luxury models can come equipped with features like the back-up camera, blind-spot warning system and stability control, these features are often more common in a luxury SUV.
