SUVs are big business now, so much so that it’s hard to believe there was a time when automakers weren’t interested in having one on offer in their lineup. In more recent times some automakers that held out also decided that not joining would be detrimental to their income generation, and so now we have brands like Lamborghini and Ferrari with SUVs on their online configurators. For this test, there’s no Ferrari, but the lineup is epic nonetheless. The Carwow crew assembled five of the world’s most popular, and most powerful SUVs available in the UK at the time of creating the video. The cars assembled aren’t all in the same class, mixed in with a bunch of stupidly powerful fossil fuel-powered cars, there’s also the all-electric Tesla Model X Plaid, which while not as large as the rest is still classified as an SUV. We already know that any Tesla in the right drive mode can be stupendously quick, and so logic says that’s where you should bet your money. That said, the other cars in the fray are nothing to scoff at with huge power on board being sent to all four wheels via lightning-quick transmissions. From Italy, there’s the Lamborghini Urus Performante, and from Germany, we have the Porsche Cayenne Turbo GT, the BMW X5M and one of our favourites, the Mercedes-AMG GLE 63 S.
Take a look at the YouTube video that shows the Carwow crew pit some of the world's best SUVs against each other to see which of the lot is the fastest to take the crown of the Fastest SUV: The World's Quickest SUVs: DRAG RACE! New Urus PERF v Model X PLAID v X5M v Turbo GT v GLE 63 S | carwow
