Scaring the horses: the age of the Super-SUV in America

Autocar Logo By Ronan Glon of Autocar | Slide 1 of 29: We estimate that fully one-third of all car sales globally in 2019 will be in the SUV segment, and the number for North America will be even higher. Some projections see SUVs taking over half of the market in America by 2020. And the luxury class is very much part of this. Indeed, the best-selling luxury ‘car’ so far in 2018 is an SUV, the Lexus RX. But now a whole new segment of car is emerging – a class that combines luxurious accommodation with blistering performance, and a sticker price to go with them. This new group of vehicles takes in the upper ends of the ranges from major American and European premium manufacturers, as well as all-new products from blue-blooded new arrivals into the market from companies like Lamborghini and Rolls-Royce (pictured). So, ranked in ascending price order (we list the MSRP for the model indicated, without destination charge), let’s a look at the Super-SUVs you can buy now, and also the ones that are coming to North America shortly:
