Midsize SUVs are the jack-of-all-trades: They offer an upright seating position and elbow room in a manageable package, cart kids and gear, achieve proficient fuel efficiency, provide comfort around town or on road trips and serve most light off-roading needs. The luxury category, however, raises the bar even higher. More than just a family hauler, high-end SUVs have a plush cabins, the latest tech features (think wireless device charging and gesture-controlled infotainment systems) and a gaggle of advanced driver safety tech. Design is an equally strong selling point as buyers expect sleek looks, flashy wheels and distinct detailing. The segment typically prizes comfort over capability, but top midsize luxury SUVs deliver at least optional go-anywhere performance or extra-sporty handling.These are the best midsize luxury SUVs available for 2022. The list includes a mix of 2021 and 2022 model year vehicles.

Why We Picked It

Genesis has come a long way in a relatively short period of time, and the GV80 is proof of that. It elegantly mixes strong and smooth powertrains with distinctive muscular styling. It also flaunts a high-quality, comfortable interior as well as a large number of advanced driver assistant safety technologies. It doesn’t outclass every competitor in every single category, but the overall package is impressive enough that it’s a must-consider for anyone shopping for a midsize luxury SUV.

Pros & Cons

  • Numerous luxury and technology features
  • Smooth ride and handling
  • Good value in the segment
  • No hybrid powertrain
  • Cramped optional third-row seat
  • Relatively unknown brand with a small dealer network

Why We Picked It

The aging GLC competes in a crowded class that is full of solid, compelling vehicles. The 2021 model carries over for 2022 with minimal changes, as Mercedes will likely debut an all-new generation for 2023–one that shares some characteristics with the revamped C-Class. But before the first and current generation drives off into the sunset, it still has enough style, luxury and features to stand out. The interior is as stylish and distinctive as the exterior, and even the GLC’s base engine moves it with plenty of pep. The regular is a relaxed and luxurious cruiser, but for adrenaline junkies, the much faster and pricier AMG models beckon. The GLC does many things well but has a little less cargo space than some newer rivals and it also makes some active safety features extra-cost options. Even so, it’s still near the top of the class in its segment.

Pros & Cons

  • Stylish and spacious interior

  • Lacks cargo space for size
  • Most advanced equipment is held back in added-cost options packages

Why We Picked It

The Audi Q8 debuted as a 2019 model as a sportier, more luxurious and pricier fast-back version of the three-row Q7. Its balance of style and substance is a coveted combination on new vehicles, and though buyers will pay top dollar, the Q8’s feature set and experience justify its steep price. It’s hard to deny the vehicle’s distinct presence on the street, especially with three superior variants from which to choose. And add in the tow package that ups capacity to a competitive 7,700 pounds and the fast SUV that also is a proficient cruiser becomes a versatile hauler. For 2022 the Q8 adds some trim enhancements and features, including larger 21-inch wheels on the entry Premium trim, adaptive cruise control with traffic-jam assist and lane-keeping assist on the Premium Plus and adaptive adaptive air suspension on the top-shelf Prestige.

Pros & Cons

  • Sleek styling
  • Fun to drive
  • Two high-performance variants
  • Back seat is tight, even for kids
  • Best features cost extra
  • Pricey

Why We Picked It

The BMW X5 has long been a benchmark in the luxury midsize SUV class. Now in its fourth generation, it continues to offer sports sedan handling and power in a family-friendly package despite facing more competition than ever. A new-for-2021 plug-in hybrid variant–the xDrive45e–helps widen its appeal to gas conscious and performance seekers alike. It’s third-row option isn’t the most useful and it could stand to have more standard active safety features, but what set the X5 apart is a spacious cabin, a sporty personality and a wide range of powertrain choices that will suit almost any performance buyer.The X5 mostly carries over for 2022, but for some feature shuffling and a new high-end, limited edition Black Vermilion with red and black detailing that’s based on the xDrive40i model. Two new colors are available for 2022: Sparkling Brown Metallic and Dravit Gray Metallic.

Why We Picked It

The Porsche Cayenne isthe sports-car SUV for affluent enthusiasts. Performance and craftsmanship are state of the art. It’s only a little costlier than the BMW X5 initially but every options package widens the gap. The Cayenne is a delight to drive on-road, off-road or towing four tons. If four people travel together, pack light. Cargo space is below average. It’s light on standard driver assists, too. For 2022, the Cayenne adds wireless Android Auto and get some infotainment enhancements, but no major changes to the formula that makes it a must-see for buyers who refuse to compromise performance for to toe around a small or growing family.

Pros & Cons

  • Superior handing
  • Very nice interior, many upgrade choices
  • Excellent off-roader and when properly equipped, tows 7,700 pounds
  • Entry model weak on standard driver assist features relative to the competition; options are costly
  • Ride without the air suspension can be stiff to buyers who want Porsche cachet more than Porsche handling
  • Less cargo capacity, fewer in-cabin storage spaces than BMW; it’s worse with the Cayenne coupes

Why We Picked It

The BMW X6 pioneered the “SUV coupe” that left other automakers scrambling to create their own slope-roofed rivals. The X6 still favors style and performance over pure utility, including a range of powerful engines with up to 617 horsepower in the improbable X6M Competition. Yet any X6 is a compelling choice for owners who demand everything in one car: Aggressive looks, luxury, sporty handling and versatile space.

Pros & Cons

  • Provocative styling
  • First-rate powertrains and handling
  • Comprehensive luxury and safety
  • Pricier and not as practical as BMW X5
  • Price soars for V8 models
  • Modest rear blind spots

Why We Picked It

American car shoppers’ appetite for larger crossover and SUVs have grown over the past five years, Lincoln has cleverly whittled its lineup to reflect the changing tastes of modern consumers. It’s three-row Aviator is no exception to Lincoln’s new position in the market as a purveyor of upscale crossovers and SUVs. The Aviator boasts clean, elegant styling, a spacious interior (except for the third row) and two engine choices (one’s a plug-in hybrid), making it a compelling alternative to pricier German luxury vehicles.

Pros & Cons

  • Smooth, refined gas powertrains
  • Sharp, upscale styling, inside and out
  • Plush interior
  • Hybrid feels clunky at times
  • Can become expensive, quickly
  • Gas fuel economy not the best

Why We Picked It

A full redesign for the 2022 Acura MDX addresses many of the previous model’s faults: Inside and out, the MDX feels more deserving of luxury dollars. Agile, confident handling is a high point, along with a raft of new safety tech and technology features that offer attention towards usability and flexibility, including a removable second row center seat and a smarter way to close the liftgate. A higher price point speaks to Acura’s desire to move the MDX upmarket, more in line with German rivals. Though the new MDX is larger and boasts family-friendly features and clever tech, fuel economy lags the class leaders.

Why We Picked It

Since its introduction in 2005, the three-row Audi Q7 has evolved into a mature, well-rounded version of its original self: It’s sprouted a third row, spawned compelling performance variants and inherited high-tech features that make it competitive with virtually every foe in the competitive midsize luxury SUV segment. Even at its base level, it offers buyers in this segment an upscale people hauler that’s understated in design, but comfortable and refined for daily duties.

Pros & Cons

  • Discreet styling
  • Four, six and eight-cylinder models satisfy a wide variety of performance appetites
  • Solid build quality and sense of utility
  • Stern interior styling
  • Tight third-row seating
  • Some may find the dual-screen MMI system excessive

Forbes Wheels: How Do We Rate Cars?

Methodology

This list contains a mixture of 2021 and 2022 model year vehicles. Our rating methodology has been expanded from five to seven categories for 2022. As such, ratings of the same vehicle between these two model years may differ slightly.

For 2022, our ratings categories are:

  • Performance
  • Fuel Economy
  • Safety
  • Infotainment
  • Comfort & Room
  • Cargo Space & Storage
  • Style & Design

Overall: 100 points

  1. Performance (15 points) The Performance score is a subjective assessment of a vehicle’s handling, braking, acceleration, ride quality and other qualitative performance measures such as horsepower, torque, zero-to-60 time and top speed. Towing capability for trucks and SUVs also is considered. Performance of the vehicles is compared against the identified competitive set. While driving, reviewers look for attributes relative to the expectations set by the manufacturer and by consumer expectations.
  2. Fuel Economy (15 points) The Fuel Economy score is based on the combined mpg estimate for the entire model lineup and how that figure measures against the identified competitive set. The mpg estimates are based on EPA data or the manufacturer if no EPA data is available. Hybrid and plug-in electric variants within a lineup that significantly lower their overall average will not be included in the comparison unless the competitive set also have hybrid or PHEV variants. Scoring for pure electric vehicles will be based on kilowatts consumed per 100 miles and the comparative mile per gallon equivalent, or MPGe.
  3. Safety (15 points) The Safety score is based on crash test results from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. Vehicles not yet rated by either agency receive zero points. Also included in the safety rating are points awarded for certain advanced driver-assistance safety features offered as standard equipment on the base trim. There are nine safety features Forbes Wheels considers mandatory for the standard offering: forward emergency automatic braking, forward collision warning, automatic high beams, blind spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic warning, adaptive cruise control and lane departure warning or one its higher-level variants, lane keeping assistance or lane centering. Vehicles must have at least four of these in their standard offering to receive points. Vehicles that offer a Level 2 self-driving system, (a combination of adaptive cruise control and lane centering) are eligible for a bonus point.
  4. Infotainment (15 points) The Infotainment score is based on points awarded for certain features offered as standard equipment on the base trim. Forbes Wheels identifies certain features that are growing in popularity and therefore have been adopted by both premium and mainstream automakers. Some of these features include a minimum 7-inch touchscreen (or premium vehicles that use a rotary knob, touchpad or other mechanism to control a non-touchscreen display), wired Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, a customizable, digital driver information display or instrument panel and at least 2 USB ports. Additional points are awarded for popular features that haven’t been widely adopted in mainstream vehicles such as wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto and wireless charging capabilities.
  5. Comfort & Room (15 points) The Comfort & Room score is based on points awarded for the reviewer’s assessment of the vehicle’s comfort, ergonomics and overall interior feel as well as effective use of space. Points also are awarded for the measurement of rear-seat legroom and how it compares with the identified competitive set. Vehicles that offer a segment-best legroom in either rear seat or optional third row are eligible for a bonus point.
  6. Cargo Space & Storage (15 points) The Cargo Space & Storage score is based on points awarded for the reviewer’s assessment of the vehicle’s large and small cargo spaces (as well as small-item storage) and how well they serve their purpose and effective use of space. Reviewers also consider innovative storage solutions and flexible loading features. Points also are awarded for the cargo space measurements for rear cargo hold or trunk and how it compares with the identified competitive set. Vehicles that offer a segment-best cargo or trunk space are eligible for a bonus point.
  7. Styling (10 points) The Performance score is a subjective assessment of a vehicle’s overall styling and design, inside and out. Reviewers also consider the configuration of the interior and how well the design plays into the function. Build quality also is a consideration.

Whether you are looking for a subcompact crossover or full-size SUV, luxury SUVs offer the comfort and tech of a premium sedan with rugged capabilities.

BMW has long been known as one of the premier luxury brands in the world and their mid-size luxury SUV, the X5, is no exception.. The X5 comes with three different engines: a turbocharged inline-six putting out 335 horsepower, a plug-in hybrid version of that same engine, and a 523-horsepower twin-turbo V8.. It also comes with a variety of standard features in every trim level including heated front seats, dual-zone climate control, and customizable interior lighting.. The comfort-oriented features such as a heated steering wheel and leather dashboard make the X5 an incredibly comfortable and premium SUV.. The interior of the Q7 is packed with features including a 10.1-inch touchscreen infotainment system and a smaller 8.6-inch screen that controls things like climate control and other settings.. Just like the Land Rover Range Rover, the Defender is a rugged SUV with a comfortable interior and your choice of three different engines.. These include the basic turbocharged four-cylinder as well as a 3.0-liter inline-six with a 48-volt hybrid system, and a supercharged V8 engine putting out 518 horsepower.. Lincoln is famous for its luxury cars and its flagship SUV, the Lincoln Navigator, but the mid-size version, the Aviator, has been slowly gaining popularity with dimensions that lean toward the compact SUV category..

Best for: The luxury SUV silver bullet… that comes at a price Priced from: $43,700. Starting a family doesn’t mean giving up on driving fun cars, especially in the modern SUV market, where even Lamborghini has a contender..
