SUVs are the most popular vehicles in the current U.S. auto market, so it comes as very little surprise that luxury auto manufacturers are putting their best foot forward to ensure that they are well represented in the segment.
Luxury auto manufacturers from all over the world offer new SUV choices for 2019. In addition, some popular models get a redesign for the new year, with Acura’s aging RDX getting an overhaul that feels long overdue, while Lincoln gives one of its most popular models a new, yet slightly more memorable name as part of a revamp.
For 2019, Mercedes-Benz’s iconic G-Class SUV receives a complete redesign for the first time in 40 years, though many of its legendary features remain intact. BMW’s X4 and Porsche’s Cayenne SUVs are also fresh for the new model year, because in this day and age, models like those make it possible for said brands to keep churning out the luxurious, yet incomparably sporty cars they are truly known and loved for.
As the subcompact luxury SUV market grows, a variety of new models hit the market, often aimed towards young people with extra money to plop down, as if manufacturers really believe there are people choosing a new cute ute over paying their next student loan installment or making their rent on time. On second thought, there probably are folks out there who do exactly that, and that’s why luxury subcompact crossover offerings from Audi, Cadillac, Infiniti, Lexus, and Volvo are all introduced for 2019.
To gain clarity on an ever-expanding lineup of premium sport utility vehicles, check out this preview of new luxury SUVs joining the market for 2019.
