Top 5 Heavyweights: The most portly cars on sale

SUVs usually weight more than rest of the market, however these are the heaviest of them all

Nissan Patrol Wet Jpg

1. Nissan Patrol Ti-L - 2832kg

The Nissan 4WD's notoriously hefty thirst is partly attributable to its big 5.6-litre petrol V8 but also an obese kerb weight that tops 2.8 tonnes. 

2. Infiniti QX80 - 2783kg

Infiniti’s luxury sibling to the Patrol is almost 50kg trimmer, yet sharing the same platform and V8 ensure the QX80’s plush ride comes at a weighty price.

3. Toyota Landcruiser Sahara TD - 2750kg

Arguably the most Aussie Japanese vehicle on sale, the 200-series ’Cruiser wagon is also one of the most durable. But invincibility comes at a cost, and that cost is 2.7 tonnes.

4. Lexus LX570 - 2740kg

More expensive than the LandCruiser on which its based, dumping diesel in favour of a 5.7-litre petrol V8 has done little to lighten the LX570’s colossal mass. Or thirst.

5. Bentley Mulsanne - 2685kg

Luxury doesn’t come lightly and Bentley’s Mulsanne is a case in point. A whopping 3300mm wheelbase and massive 6.8-litre V8 all add to the, er, portly bottom line.
