Best Luxury SUVs for 2019 & 2020 - Top-Rated Small, Midsize and Large Luxury SUVs & Crossovers
After extensive testing and careful consideration, Edmunds lists the best luxury SUVs at every size and price category. Carlos Lago and Will Kaufman go through the top ranked luxury SUVs by category and provide alternative options for different shopper needs. Each SUV has undergone our rigorous testing and evaluation process, which includes a standardized road test.
2020 BMW X1 1:17
The X1 may be BMW's lowest-priced SUV, but it doesn't skimp on the things that make crossovers so desirable. You can expect ample passenger and cargo space, sporty driving characteristics and a premium cabin, all of which help make the X1 a top pick.
2020 Volvo XC40 3:31
Volvo's all-new subcompact XC40 SUV inherits the brand's familial good looks and packs a lot of charm into a small package, but it isn't without its faults. Front seat ergonomics and the touchscreen interface could be a dealbreaker for some, yet this is certainly one of the segment's standouts.
2019 MINI Countryman 5:05
The Countryman delivers a shot of excitement and personality with its sporty handling and unique approach to ergonomics and interior design. It returns good fuel economy, and buyers have a lot of options for customizing—but be mindful, they add up quickly.
2019 Mercedes-Benz GLC 6:41
The GLC-Class sets a high bar for compact luxury SUVs with its elegant cabin and balanced dynamics. It offers an extensive list of luxury features and a variety of available engines, but any GLC model should be a pleasure to drive.
2019 Volvo XC60 9:18
The XC60 is a sharp-looking SUV with a modern, clean interior that gives it immediate luxury appeal. The ultra-refined interior is perhaps a step ahead of the ride quality, but in the final tally, the XC60 is one of the most compelling entrants in this segment.
2020 Acura RDX 10:46
The RDX differentiates itself from the competition with edgy styling, a comfortable interior and a long list of standard features. It offers a strong engine and sharp handling, but it isn't quite as posh or elegant as more expensive luxury SUVs.
2020 Mercedes-Benz GLE 12:52
The GLE-Class is a significant step forward from its predecessor and a class leader in several respects. Materials quality and design are second to none, and the excellent MBUX tech interface sets a new industry standard.
2019 Porsche Cayenne 15:18
This Cayenne an athlete among luxury SUVs, and its comprehensive lineup ranges from a green-cred plug-in hybrid to a sports-car-beating all-star with a turbo V8. It's an intriguing choice for shoppers whose life circumstances preclude a 911.
2020 Audi Q7 15:58
The Q7's combination of performance, comfort, technology and value is hard to beat. With an impeccably-built interior and sharp reflexes on the road, the Q7 is rewarding to both drivers and passengers.
2019 Acura MDX 17:15
The MDX is a pragmatic choice, with a standard third-row seat and generous feature content at an attractive price. There are more luxurious and sportier options, but the MDX does just about everything well.
2020 Lincoln Navigator 19:19
The Navigator is built to impress, from its incredible tow rating to its plush interior, expansive cargo space and full suite of modern technology features. This is a very convincing luxury ride.
2019 BMW X7 20:55
BMW's biggest SUV, the three-row X7 strikes an optimal balance of luxury, performance and refinement that should please shoppers, drivers and passengers alike.
2019 Bentley Bentayga 23:54
For now, the Bentley Bentayga is at the top of the heap when it comes to luxury, underpinned by powerful engines and some tricky off-road gear. It has access to all of Bentley's bespoke coachbuilding options.
2019 Mercedes-Benz G-Class 23:29
Built with the precision of a military rifle but none of the singularity of purpose, the G-Class relies on style and emotion to justify its price rather than planning or execution.
2019 Rolls-Royce Cullinan 23:29
