5 of the most outstanding SUVs in the world
Bentley plans to start selling its new car, which will become the most expensive SUV in the world. And today we will tell about the five most remarkable crossovers in different categories – from the smallest to the largest, from the cheapest to the most expensive.
Bentley – the most expensive SUV in the world
And we will begin our story with the Bentley SUV already mentioned above. This car is based on the EXP 9 F concept car presented a few years ago, which was quite ambiguously perceived by critics. But the manufacturer had the strength and ability to correct its shortcomings and create a really good luxury class crossover, which will become a high-profile product for the richest people in the world.
The car from Bentley is the most expensive serial SUV in the world. Its value is about 200 thousand American dollars. At the same time, the manufacturer hopes to produce 3,000 crossovers per year.
SUV Knight XV – this machine is for those who are not afraid of gossip and ridicule from others. The fact is that this is the world’s largest serial SUV. Its length is nearly 6 meters, and the engine capacity is 6.7 liters.
Car Knight XV is based on the Canadian army armored personnel carrier. He is able to withstand the impact not only of bullets and shrapnel, but even a shot from a grenade launcher. Inside, this SUV looks more like a small apartment, or at least a hotel room.
The interior of the Knight XV crossover is trimmed in leather. It has six seats (including the driver), each of which can be expanded into a full bed. And for the entertainment of passengers in this SUV provides a large plasma TV, computer and multimedia center.
Suzuki Jimny – the world’s smallest SUV
And the smallest SUV in the world, if you do not take into account the model for children, is the car Suzuki Jimny, first released in 1970 and has come down to our days.
The name Jimny itself is an abbreviation of two words, “Jeep” and “mini”. This car has a length of about three and a half meters, engine capacity – 1.3 liters, and power – 85 horsepower. However, the Suzuki Jimny is a real off-road vehicle that can travel over rough terrain and even climb a hillside.
People joke that the Suzuki Jimny is an SUV for those who do not need to prove anything to society, for people who are already so high in self-esteem.
Pontiac Aztek – the ugliest SUV in the world
There are many SUVs that are considered the most beautiful in the world. Different automotive publications every year hold relevant competitions, identifying the best of the best cars. But with respect to the ugliest crossover on the planet, almost all critics are unanimous – they are considered to be Pontiac Aztek. Moreover, he heads the rating of “The most disgusting cars of all time.”
Pontiac Aztek is a real failure of the legendary company Pontiac. It seemed to the manufacturer that he had released an unusual family SUV for rural residents and lovers of nature. But potential buyers did not appreciate this car – sales of the ugly SUV did not even make up ten percent of the planned, and the criticism in general smashed the novelty to smithereens.
