Ranking of SUVs
SUVs are very popular among drivers, which is why we have created a ranking of the best and the worst. It is based on road tests as well as their safety or failure rate. So what models should be put on, and which should be avoided from a distance?
1. small SUV
Best - Subaru XV
Although in the opinion of professionals, this model drives worse than the famous Event, it is very well driven in the field and has an engine with a capacity of 2 litres and 150 horses.
Worst - Fiat 500x
Apart from its attractive design, the Fiat 500x is not rated very well. It burns a lot of fuel, has an uncomfortable suspension and a fairly average automatic transmission. Riding it is not one of the most pleasant ones, due to the noise in the cabin and uncomfortable seats.
.2 Compact SUV
Best - Subaru Forester
This Subaru model has gained recognition in its category due to its economical engine, excellent visibility and well-designed interior. Unfortunately, the materials used in it do not impress.
Worst of all - Jeep Cherokee
Once again, the SUV, which burns a lot of fuel and has a weak 9-speed transmission. The biggest disadvantage of this particular SUV model is its very high failure rate. It's a pity, because Jeep Cherokee has an intuitive multimedia system and a spacious interior.
3. medium sized SUVs
Best - Toyota Highlander
The Toyota Highlander is equipped with a good 3.5-litre V6 engine and an eight-speed transmission. However, experts value this model primarily because of its excellent suspension, which guarantees stable driving.
Worst - Jeep Wrangler
The uncomfortable interior and bodywork, through which we deal with unbearable air noise during a faster ride, are some of the criticisms of the Jeep Wrangler car. Designed primarily for off-road use, with poor performance on asphalt.
4. large SUV
Best - Dodge Durango
The Dodge Durango has a very comfortable interior with no noise. The 8-speed gearbox is an excellent choice for this, and is also distinguished by its good handling characteristics.
Worst of all - Toyota Sequoia
The spacious interior is not able to overshadow the drawbacks of the Toyota Sequoia. This model burns a lot of fuel, which can be traced back to the 5.7-litre V8 engine, its heavy weight and body. Uncomfortable vehicle suspension does not help either.
6. luxury compact SUV
Best - Porsche Macan
The Porsche Macan is an expensive, but expensive Porsche Macan, with excellent performance and fantastic rideability. Compared to previous versions, it also has a lower failure rate.
Worst - Land Rover Discovery Sport
In this case, the high price does not translate into quality. The weak multimedia system and unattractive interior, the hard suspension and the fact that Land Rover does not drive well on the asphalt make it impossible to recommend its purchase.
7. luxury large SUV
Best - Audi Q7
The Audi Q7 is equipped with an excellent 3.0 V6 engine and an 8-speed gearbox for a great ride. Attractively finished interior is also well muted. Optionally, we can also choose the air suspension.
The worst - Cadillac Escalade
Large sizes and luxuriously finished interior unfortunately do not save this model. Driving it is definitely not one of the most enjoyable, not least because of its hard suspension and poor driving characteristics. Not to mention the very tight second and third row of seats, which can be a big surprise in such a big car.
