When people think of luxury cars, they normally don't picture an SUV. That's understandable. The most common image of a luxury car is a stylish sports car or coupe. Whenever you see a luxury car in a movie, TV show, or commercial, it's usually the smaller and more compact luxury cars that take center stage. However, luxury style and features aren't exclusive to sports cars, coupes, and sedans, as we'll see today.

Why should you buy a luxury SUV? Well, why would you buy any luxury vehicle? No matter the build or model, luxury vehicles offer superior style, high-class performance, and next generation, advanced technology. Beyond that, you'll also get all of the extra advantages that come with an SUV. So, today, we'll be looking at 2 high-class, luxury SUVs. It's the 2018 Mercedes-Benz GLE SUV vs the 2018 Porsche Cayenne SUV.
