Best 2013 luxury SUV: Land Rover Range Rover
Base price:
$82,650

Whether you're conquering the Australian Outback or just heading to your local Outback Steakhouse for dinner, the Range Rover will get you there in comfort and style.

"You always expect a Range Rover to be out in the wilds where they made their name, but the vehicle does just as well in the 'urban jungle,'" Homan says. "No matter what you define as an SUV, this model will fulfill your needs."

Completely redesigned for 2013, the five-passenger Range Rover features an aluminum frame that improved acceleration, handling and fuel economy by cutting some 700 pounds off of the previous version's weight.

The base 2013 also comes standard with a 375-horsepower V-8 engine, while a 510-horsepower supercharged version is also available.
