The Five Best New SUVs


SUVs have become wildly popular over the last couple of decades, to the point that almost every auto manufacturer has their own distinct SUV on the market. With so many options to choose from, it can be hard to narrow down the one that is best for you. Whether you’re looking for reliability, powerful performance, or the latest technology, you can’t go wrong with one of these five new SUVs.


BMW X5

The X5 was one of the first luxury SUVs on the market. The exterior design of this SUV hasn’t changed very much over the years, but the newest model has seen significant improvements in the car’s handling and steering. The X5 has three options for powerful drivetrains with eight-speed automatic transmission. The base model has a turbocharged I6 engine and 335 horsepower, while an upgrade will get you a twin-turbo V8 with 523 horsepower. You can also go green with a plug-in hybrid that features an I6 electric motor and 389 horsepower.

Mazda CX-9

The CX-9 offers a driving experience that is more fun than many other SUVs. You have the choice of FWD or AWD, and all versions of this SUV are equipped with a turbocharged I4 engine. The CX-9 has great handling and performance, particularly when it comes to steering and cornering. The interior of the vehicle is attractive and features soft-touch plastic, brushed aluminum, and rosewood accents. The third row can get a little squishy for passengers but, overall, the CX-9 is a great mid-size SUV.

Kia Telluride

The Telluride was one of the most popular SUVs of the year due to its impressive performance on and off-road. Equipped with a V6 engine that gives it 291 horsepower, the Telluride is durable and strong enough to pull a 2,268-kilogram (5,000-pound) trailer. It comes with FWD, but AWD is also available. In addition to great handling and performance, the Telluride is popular for its luxurious interior that features leather trim and dual 12-inch touchscreens. People also love the spacious cabin which can easily fit seven passengers and all their gear.

Volvo XC90

The XC90 has lots of safety tech and a spacious cabin that makes it an ideal option for families. Compared to other SUVs, the XC90 provides one of the smoothest, most comfortable rides but passengers in the backseat might feel a little cramped. Base models are equipped with a turbocharged I4 engine and 247 horsepower, but you can upgrade to a plug-hybrid that has 400 horsepower. Regardless of which drivetrain you choose, the XC90 is a fun SUV to cruise around in.

Chevrolet Suburban

The Suburban is one of the largest SUVs on the market and one of the most popular for its ability to accommodate large families and tow heavy loads. In addition to lots of passenger and cargo space, the interior features cool technology like an 8-inch touchscreen, wireless phone charging, and heated seats. The Suburban is one of the more powerful SUVs on the market and comes equipped with a V8 engine and 420 horsepower. This SUV has impressive off-road capabilities, and, despite its size, is surprisingly agile. All in all, the Suburban exemplifies the best qualities of an SUV and is a great option if you’re looking for a new vehicle.
