SPECIAL SUV: Our Selection Of Top Models

After our feature on luxury SUVs, let’s move on to the top-of-the-range SUVs, which are obviously more affordable, but which do not lack quality, quite the contrary. Technological, practical, sometimes even sporty, but above all comfortable, these models are very popular with customers. Here is our selection of the most interesting premium SUVs.

BMW X3

BMW X3

Recently restyled, the BMW X3 is one of the best-sellers of the Bavarian firm. The German SUV is convincing on many levels and is available in both diesel and petrol, with plug-in hybrid variants. An electric version called the iX3 is also available.

Audi Q5

Audi Q5 Sportback

The Audi Q5 has also recently been restyled and now has a Sportback version that gives it a more dynamic look thanks to a sloping roofline. The Audi Q5 is available in diesel, petrol and plug-in hybrid versions.

Mercedes GLC

Mercedes GLC

It’s the latest of the bunch, the Mercedes GLC. The German SUV has just been given a whole new generation in the face of the Audi Q5 and BMW X3. More technological, more dynamic and more comfortable, the Mercedes GLC is available with petrol and diesel micro-hybrid engines and PHEV versions.

DS 7

DS 7

The DS 7has recently been given a little facelift. On the agenda are a few aesthetic and technological novelties, but also a new 360 hp PHEV version with 4 wheel drive. This is enough to seriously overshadow the German trio mentioned above.

Jaguar F-Pace

Jaguar F-Pace

The British SUV, despite a restyling, has always struggled to find its place among the German trio. However, it is not lacking in qualities, with two micro-hybrid diesels, a plug-in hybrid petrol unit and a sporty 550hp SVR version.

Porsche Macan

Porsche Macan

The Porsche Macan will get a new 100% electric generation next year. In the meantime, Porsche’s best-selling car is still going strong, even though its career has taken a turn for the worse, especially in Europe, due to its inability to be fitted with a PHEV engine because of the age of its platform. In France, the Macan is available with a four-cylinder 265 hp engine or a 3.0-litre V6 that can produce up to 440 hp in the GTS version.

Maserati Levante

Maserati Levante

The Maserati Levante has kept the brand afloat for a few years andits revival is currently underway. Its mythical coat of arms has undoubtedly seduced many customers, as have its engines, with a 2.0-litre four-cylinder with 330 bhp, a 3.0-litre V6 with 440 bhp or a 3.8-litre V8 with 580 bhp.

Lexus RX

Lexus RX

It’s probably the least sporty of the bunch, but that’s also because it’s the most virtuous. The Lexus RX has recently been given a new generation and shines with its fuel efficiency and low fuel consumption thanks to its top level hybrid engines.

Volvo XC60

Volvo XC60

The Volvo XC60 has quickly made its mark on the German trio thanks to strong aesthetic choices and top quality manufacturing. Even if it is not young anymore, it is still perfectly up to date, especially thanks to its micro-hybrid and PHEV engines.

Land Rover Range Rover Evoque

Range Rover Evoque

The Range Rover Evoque has recently been given a new generation and has taken the opportunity to make some changes to its range. The engines are all hybrids now, with 200bhp micro-hybrid diesel, 200bhp Flexfuel micro-hybrid petrol, and a 300bhp plug-in hybrid.

Alfa Romeo Stelvio

Alfa Romeo Stelvio

It is one of the oldest models in this selection, but also one of the most beautiful. The Alfa Romeo is, despite being an SUV, a true Alfa, with dynamic behaviour at its best. While it doesn’t have a hybrid engine, its petrol and diesel engines are convincing, especially the sporty Quadrifoglio version with its 510 bhp from a sublime Ferrari-sourced 2.9-litre twin-turbo V6.
