Top five fast SUVs

A trip to the store needn’t be a dull affair. With rip-snorting engines such as these powering your luxury barge, you’re bound to end your day with a smile.

PORSCHE CAYENNE TURBO
Price: $232,900

Porsche purists despise it, but there’s no doubt Stuttgart’s biggest, baddest SUV is brutally quick. Slams 0-100km/h in 4.4 seconds thanks to its twin-turbo V8 churning out 382kW/750Nm.

BMW X5 M
Price: $185,510

undefined

The second-most powerful and equal fastest SUV here, with its 4.4-litre twin-turbo V8 punching out 423kW/750Nm.  That means 0-100km/h in a Porsche-beating 4.2sec.

MERCEDES-BENZ GLE63 S AMG
Price: $189,900

undefined

It’s the heaviest of the group, but the GLE is equal fastest to 100km/h, with its 5.5-litre 430kW/760Nm twin-turbo V8 making the sprint in 4.2sec.

JEEP GRAND CHEROKEE SRT8
Price: $82,000

Talk about bang for your buck – for a third of the Porsche’s price you get a naturally aspirated 6.4-litre 344kW/624Nm V8 and a 0-100km/h sprint time of 4.8sec.

AUDI SQ5
Price: $91,700

It’s a small fry in a world of big hitters, but Audi’s mid-size 3.0-litre twin-turbo diesel V6 can still hustle to 100km/h in 5.1sec.
