2019 Volvo XC90 ExcellenceThe Volvo XC90 provides an insane quantity of luxury, and also your Excellence is the upper-crust trimming, for over $100,000.It might resemble a normal XC90 on the exterior, however, the interior of the car is out-of-this-world trendy, with just two sculpted rear seats with a beverage cooler from the console between them. Just such as the chairs, the cup holders are both heated and cooled.The Excellence can be obtained with one powertrain: a 2.0-liter turbocharged and supercharged four-cylinder I4, paired with a battery and electric motor. All in, the plug hybrid creates a healthful 400 horsepower with fantastic fuel economy.– Kyle Hyatt
2019 Lincoln NavigatorLincoln’s brand new Navigator is only about the ideal way to invest your cash in the high-end full size SUV space. Its main rival, the Escalade, which also includes a third-row chair, is almost both priced and it seems as though it is 10 years old. The option among big SUVs is evident.The Navigator pushes like a dream and its inside is a number of Lincoln’s greatest work in… possibly forever. The planet needs more blue insides.– Andrew Krok
2019 Bentley BentaygaLet’s see… that a 6.0-liter twin-turbo W12 engine generating 600 horsepower and 664 pound-feet of torque. Why wouldn’t this be my choice among my favorite luxurious SUVs?Sure, it costs over $200,000, but I can’t help thinking how fun it would be to slap some aggressive tires on the Bentayga and hit the dunes.In addition to its superluxurious interior, the Bentayga has eight driving modes, including those for snow, sand, grass and trails. And if the W12 is too much for you, there are also V8 and hybrid models.– Emme Hall
2019 Porsche CayenneBetween a 4. )0-liter twin-turbo V8 making 550 horsepower and 558 pound-feet of torque in the Turbo model and an E-Hybrid coming in the very near future, the Cayenne spans a wide potential performance gamut.It’s a big SUV, however it still handles like a proper Porsche. Plus, the new PCM infotainment, also seen in the Panamera models, is streets ahead of the older system with increased functionality and ease of use.– Antuan Goodwin
2019 Mazda CX-9You might not think of Mazda as a luxury brand, but I promise, in its top trim levels, the 2019 CX-9 is as nice as many of the other SUVs around this list.A 2.5-liter turbocharged engine is mated to a smooth-shifting six-speed automatic. It’s like on the proverbial butter behind the wheel. But you don’t even have to drive this mid-size SUV to appreciate how well the CX-9 punches above the weight. Just look at it. It’s stunning.– Manuel Carrillo III
2019 Audi Q7The three-row Q7 pretty much rocks at everything. It handles like an Audi car should, it looks great, packs in plenty of passengers, and it has all the latest tech. The bonus: it starts with a base price at under $50,000.Two engine choices are offered. The spry little 2.0-liter turbo with 252 horsepower is enough to motivate the Q7 around town, or you can go big and get a supercharged V6.The Q7 has excellent tech, from active safety to the intuitive MMI infotainment system. Virtual Cockpit, which puts navigation and other info front and center, is well worth the extra $2,000.– Jake Holmes
2019 Mercedes-AMG G63Yes, it’s a ridiculous anachronism, but nothing drives or feels like a Gelandewagen. It’s singularly lovable and memorable, a true living legend that drips both luxury and off-road ability.The V8-powered G550 offers ample performance, but why not go with the 577-horsepower G63. Sure, it starts at $147,500, but aren’t you worth it?– Chris Paukert
2019 GMC Yukon DenaliGMC’s big-boy Yukon Denali comes standard with a 6.2-liter V8 making 420 horsepower and 460 pound-feet of torque, which is mated to an excellent 10-speed automatic transmission. It offers a really smooth and quiet ride for a such a big, body-on-frame sport utility vehicle.Denali-specific exterior touches add a little more styling and look better than the too-flashy Cadillac Escalade. The Yukon Denali starts at $66,200.– Jon Wong
2019 Land Rover Range Rover VelarThe Velar may start at under $50,000, but that doesn’t mean it’s not chock-a-block with British luxury.This car is loaded with advanced driver aid systems, including autonomous emergency braking, adaptive cruise control, blind-spot monitoring and lane-keep assist. You can also get some cool car tech like Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, traffic sign recognition and a drowsy driver monitor.The inside is a minimalist’s delight, flooded with light from an available panoramic moonroof. Comfortable front seats are heated and cooled and come with massage functionality. And cargo capacity is impressive.– Steven Ewing
2019 Jaguar I-PaceLuxury is increasingly about reduction of stress, and silently flying down the road in an electric SUV that requires basically zero maintenance and contains comprehensive safety features certainly would make it pretty easy to relax.Not that any owner is likely to go there, but their all-wheel drive I-Pace is a legitimately good off-road driving vehicle. I tackled some impressively steep terrain on some low-profile, road-biased tires, determining that the I-Pace is the best off-road EV on the market rivaling any Tesla model.The I-Pace is legitimately quick, with 394 horsepower and a 0-60 time about just 4.5 seconds. Despite that and all-wheel drive, this car will do 240 miles with some charge. It starts at just under $70,000.– Tim Stevens Read more: 2019 Jaguar F-Pace SVR first push review Originally printed June 10.
