The United Arab Emirates is famous for its extravagantly-high population of high-performance vehicles. After all, this is a part of the world that loves cars that can not only go fast, but do so in much style and verve. Does this mean that these uber-nice four-wheelers have it easy in such a competitive market? Absolutely not.

With so much rivalry going on, people will always have more than enough viable options to choose from. Over the years, automakers from all over globe have kept introducing newer and faster SUVs. Today, the UAE gets some of the best high-performance SUVs from countries like the USA, Germany, Japan, Italy, and the United Kingdom. Obviously, this means that Cars24 will have its say on the top best high-performance SUVs in UAE for 2021-22. While some of these cars many not be the best-sellers, their existence in this market is far more important than you may think.

Given how nice roads and highways are in the UAE, driving cars (no matter what type) becomes a fun affair. But, because this region loves SUVs so much, you will find plenty of people pushing their regular 4x4s to the hilt, trying to get that speedometer to go as high as practically possible. Of course, since most SUVs are as aerodynamic as a file cabinet, physics plays a huge role in how fast these vehicles can actually go.

Fortunately, high-performance SUVs are quite good at punching a hole through the earth’s air resistance issue – at least to an acceptable degree. This, in turn, means that buyers of these vehicles can enjoy the thrill of speed, while also being able to carry lots of stuff, and having a commanding driving position. Having said that, these SUVs are certainly not cheap to buy, as the above price table clearly shows. And while the Covid-19 pandemic might have slowed the growth of some automakers, there are still enough takers for this particular genre to stay afloat in the UAE.

However, as we keep moving towards the eventual electrification of cars, even high-performance SUVs will ditch the internal combustion engine (ICE) at some point, altogether. While this will come as a heartbreak for those of us who adore ICE-powered performance vehicles, the world is moving forward whether we like it or not. Meanwhile, Cars24 is also moving ahead with its ever-growing inventory of certified used cars in Dubai and well-priced old cars for sale in Sharjah. In case, you cannot yet afford one of these fast but expensive high-performance SUVs, you should definitely check out Cars24.

Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk

Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk UAE

The regular Jeep Grand Cherokee is quite a popular and practical SUV in the UAE. While the fifth-generation model is the latest, one can still find many fourth-generation model plying the roads in the region. Sometime during 2018, Jeep introduced the rocketship that is the Grand Cherokee Trackhawk. Priced just below 400,000 dirhams, the Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk is one of the craziest high-performance SUVs on the planet. According to the American automaker, it is the world’s most powerful and quickest SUV ever!

Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk front

Sold exclusively by Trading Enterprises in the UAE, the Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk might now be a touch old, but it still remains an absolute laughter riot. On the other hand, if you want something that costs far less than 400,000 dirhams, Cars24 has a list of second-hand cars for sale in Abu Dhabi and other emirates. For the most part, the Trackhawk almost looks like a standard Grand Cherokee – that’s to say that this is still a large and heavy American SUV. However, Jeep has made a few modifications to make sure that keen-eyed viewers know what they are looking at.

Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk side

Starting at the front, the Grand Cherokee Trackhawk gets a sculpted hood with dual heat extractors, bi-xenon headlamps with unique gloss black treatment and LED surrounds, plus the brand’s signature seven-slot upper front grille. Of course, the front bumper is beefier and sportier, with large air intakes and a deep center air dam. The Trackhawk also comes with other unique fixtures such as more aggressive side sill cladding and wheel arches, "Supercharged" badge on both front doors, specialized 20-inch forged aluminium wheels finished in matte black, a large roof spoiler, black ‘Jeep’ and ‘Trackhawk’ badges, and four exhaust pipes with gloss black lower-bumper trimmings.

In terms of its exterior dimensions, the Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk measures 4,822mm in length, 1,943mm in width, and 1,778mm in overall height (the Trackhawk sits about an inch lower than the standard model). Furthermore, it features a wheelbase of 2,914mm and a boot capacity of over 1,000 liters behind the rear seats. When it comes to its exterior colors, the Grand Cherokee Trackhawk is available in Billet Silver, Granite Crystal, Diamond Black, Velvet Red, True Blue etc.

Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk cabin

The Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk can be had with a sporty red/black dual-tone interior, which does look pretty good. Moreover, there is also a suede material covering much of the rood and the A-pillars, further accentuating this SUV’s sporty aspirations. The leather seats are pretty large and even get extensive side bolstering, especially at the front. There is also a part-digital instrument cluster, metallic and chrome accents, faux carbon-fiber trim, and a three-spoke leather steering wheel with the ‘Trackhawk’ badge and shift paddles.

However, the quality of materials plus their fit-and-finish is not the best, especially considering the Trackhawk’s price tag. On the other hand, you will get quite a lot of features and equipment with this SUV. Some of the most noteworthy include adaptive cruise control, Bilstein adaptive dampers, an electronic limited-slip rear differential with an full-time active transfer case, Launch Control, five dynamic drive modes, Brembo brakes, sports exhaust, a dual-pane panoramic sunroof, heated & cooled front seats, Active Noise Cancellation, an 8.4-inch Uconnect touchscreen infotainment system with Trackhawk-exclusive Performance Pages plus Apple CarPlay & Android Auto, and a 19-speaker Harman Kardon premium audio system.

Handling the safety side of things on the Grand Cherokee Trackhawk are features such as Electronic Stability Control, Full-speed Forward Collision Warning with Crash Mitigation, Blind-spot Monitoring with Rear Cross Path Detection, Lane Departure Warning-Plus, Trailer Hitch Camera View, and Front and Rear Park Assist among others. Powering this 2.4-ton SUV is a tremendous 6.2-liter supercharged V8 engine that makes an astonishing 707hp and 875Nm of peak torque! Coupled to an 8-speed automatic gearbox, the Trackhawk will touch 100 kmph in just 3.7 seconds and hit a top whack of 290 kmph.

Range Rover Sport SVR

Range Rover Sport SVR front side

In the world of premium high-performance SUVs, the Range Rover Sport SVR is one of the most characterful and posh in equal measure. First debuted back in 2015, the SVR avatar of the Range Rover Sport was updated in late-2017. In the UAE, if you wish to buy one of these brand-new, be ready to write a check for well over 620,000 dirhams (before any options). Primarily retailed by Al Tayer Motors, the Range Rover Sport SVR is well-liked by those that want the fastest Range Rover in the market.

Range Rover Sport SVR front

Of course, if there is a budget constraint, you can always visit Cars24 for some decent set of wheels. In fact, Cars24 has an extensive collection of affordable second-hand cars for sale in Dubai. Coming back to the Range Rover Sport SVR, its exterior design is aggressive yet suave enough to be parked at the entrance of Buckingham Palace. To boost its appeal, Land Rover given the Range Rover Sport SVR a completely-revised front bumper with massive intakes that are painted in gloss black.

Range Rover Sport SVR side

Add to this, the Range Rover Sport SVR gets a scooped hood with a carbon finish, debonair Pixel LED headlights with signature DRLs, black contrast roof, black ‘Range Rover’ badges, huge 22-inch alloy rims, fender-integrated vents, flared front & rear wheel arches, a svelte rear spoiler, a ‘SVR’ badge on the tailgate, sleek LED tail lamps, and a deep rear bumper with an integrated diffuser and quad tailpipes. Pick the right color combination (inside and out), and no one will miss your Range Rover Sport SVR as you pass by.

Depending on how much you are willing to spend over & above the base price, Land Rover UAE will happily comply with any color requests that you might have. Otherwise, the standard choices include Fuji White, Santorini Black, Yulong White, Firenze Red, Eiger Grey, Hakuba Silver, and Velocity Blue. On the size front, the Range Rover Sport SVR comes in at 4,879mm in length, 2,073mm in width, 1,803mm in height, and has a wheelbase of 2,923mm. In the meantime, you can store up to 780 liters worth of luggage behind the rear seats.

Range Rover Sport SVR interior

As expected from a modern Land Rover product, the interior of the new Range Rover Sport SVR looks and feels exquisite and expensive. Moreover, the quality of the things that you touch and feel not only feel like they are quite premium, but the attention-to-detail feels on point too. The cabin is adorned with SVR Performance seats and three digital screens – including the driver’s display, touch-infotainment unit, and the HVAC and seat controls. The throne-like seating position of the classic Range Rover is absent here, but you still sit pretty high up.

Range Rover Sport SVR features

Land Rover has packed the Range Rover Sport SVR with tons of features as it is. However, there are always optional extras that you would want to add on top of all that. Overall, you can expect equipment such as radar-guided cruise control, adaptive Pixel-laser headlights, adaptive & self-levelling air suspension, a gesture-activated tailgate, keyless-entry & go with Activity Key, power-operated and climate-controlled front seats, a power-operated multifunction steering wheel, a panoramic sunroof, a Meridian Signature sound system, tri-zone climate control, a 10-inch-inch touch-infotainment system with smartphone connectivity, a 10-inch-inch touch-sensitive HVAC display, and a 12.3-inch digital driver’s display.

Range Rover Sport SVR UAE

The Range Rover Sport SVR also packs High-speed Emergency Braking, Lane Departure Warning with Lane Keep Assist, Blind Spot Monitor with Blind Spot Assist, Driver Condition Monitor, Rear Traffic Monitor with Clear Exit Monitor, Front and Rear Parking Aid with 360-degree cameras, and up to 8 airbags. The Range Rover Sport SVR comes with Land Rover’s versatile Terrain Response 2 system, which not only helps during off-road excursions, but also plays a key role in ensuring traction and stability is maintained on the road. It also gets an Active Rear Locking Differential and Low Traction Launch System.

Range Rover Sport SVR performance

Being the fastest Land Rover SUV, the Range Rover Sport SVR wields the 5.0-liter supercharged V8 engine from the Jaguar F-Type. It puts out 567hp along with 700Nm of maximum torque, and sends it to all four wheels via an 8-speed automatic transmission. Therefore, even though it weighs north of 2.3 tons, the Range Rover Sport SVR will still hit 100 kmph in 4.5 seconds. Meanwhile, the top speed lies just above 280 kmph.

Porsche Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid

Porsche Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid front side

If we are talking about high-performance SUVs, it is impossible to leave out the Porsche Cayenne. Launched as the niche German brand’s first-ever SUV in 2003, the Cayenne’s popularity remains at an all-time high even today. And among the several variants in the lineup, the Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid is unarguably the most powerful and fastest – not to mention the most expensive – starting from AED 700,700 in the UAE.

Porsche Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid front

Thankfully, Cars24 has an extensive collection of second-hand cars for sale in Sharjah that are priced way lower than that. Over the years since its debut, Porsche has continued to improve upon the design of the Cayenne – the latest one looks sharper and far more sophisticated than the first models. As for the range-topping Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid, it gets fancy LED matrix beam headlights with Porsche’s signature LED DRLs, a wide front bumper with loads of intakes plus a lower skid plate, wider haunches with larger wheel arches, 22-inch lightweight alloy wheels with fluorescent-green brake pads, and ‘e-hybrid’ badges on the front fenders.

Porsche Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid side

The rear of the Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid features an aerodynamic spoiler, Porsche’s beautifully-crafted & full-width LED taillights, a power-operated tailgate, and a sleek bumper with four exhaust outlets. While it is still an SUV, the Porsche Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid does sit lower to the ground than the entry-level variants. As for its dimensions, the Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid comes in at 4,926mm in length, 1,983mm in width, and 1,673mm in height. It features a wheelbase of 2,895mm and a boot capacity of 645 liters.

Porsche Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid rear side

In the UAE, customers can choose their Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid in one of 11 different colors. The list includes Carrara White Metallic, Jet Black Metallic, Dolomite Silver Metallic, Carmine Red, and Moonlight Blue Metallic among others. Understandably, the cabin of the Porsche Cayenne feels extremely well-made and looks equally rich, too. There’s plenty of high-quality materials used throughout the place, while the aisle stand is dominated by a capacitive-touch panel and metal rocker switches. Similarly, the multi-pod instrument cluster and steering wheel are exactly what you will find in Porsche’s sports cars as well.

Porsche Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid interior

Being a Porsche, the Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid can be had with loads of optional extras. Buyers will get to enjoy features such as Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control, Porsche Torque Vectoring Plus, the Porsche Ceramic Composite Brake, Sport Chrono Package, and Porsche Active Suspension Management. Some of the other notable equipment onboard include a wide touchscreen infotainment head unit with Porsche Communication Management and wireless Apple CarPlay. Of course, there’s multizone climate control, heated & cooled powered front seats, a panoramic sunroof, and a part-digital driver’s display.

Porsche Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid features

Meanwhile, the Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid’s safety suite consists of multiple airbags, a camera-based pedestrian protection system, Night Vision, a head-up display, Lane Keeping Assist with Active Lane Guidance, Road Sign Recognition, Junction Assistant, Emergency Braking, and Park Assist with a surround-view camera system. Being a hybrid, this Porsche Cayenne comes with a 14.1kWh battery pack that powers a single electric motor located between the engine and the 8-speed automatic gearbox. Furthermore, the engine in question here is a 4.0-liter twin-turbocharged V8 unit. Combined, the Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid puts forth 671hp and 900Nm of torque. This is more than enough to propel this SUV to a top speed of 295 kmph.

Mercedes-AMG G63

Mercedes-AMG G63 UAE

If there is one SUV that you will find quite easily in the UAE, it is the Mercedes-AMG G63. Known simply as the G-Wagen or G-Class by most people, the G63 is a combination of rugged and high performance. A brand-new Mercedes-AMG G63 can cost in the region of 800,000 dirhams, and can be purchased from Gargash Enterprises or the Emirates Motor Company. However, if you want to search for affordable old cars for sale in Abu Dhabi or certified used cars in Ajman, check out Cars24’s inventory.

Mercedes-AMG G63 side

Mercedes-Benz recently revised the styling of the G-Class to make it look more modern than before, but thankfully, the revision hasn’t come at the cost of the G losing it appeal or identity. The boxy profile, flat-ish windows, exposed rain gutters, circular headlamps, top-mounted turn indicators, side-mounted exhaust pipes, door-mounted spare wheel – all are still here. In terms of its footprint, the Mercedes-AMG G63 measures 4,817mm in length, 1,931mm in width, and 1,969mm in height. Furthermore, the G63’s boot is rated at 667 liters, while the distance between the front and rear wheels is 2,890mm.

Mercedes-AMG G63 rear

As for its color options, the Mercedes-AMG G63 is available in Obsidian Black, Iridium Silver, Magnetite Black, Rubellite Red, Emerald Green, Jupiter Red, and Night Black Magno. Meanwhile, the interior of the G-Wagen is as classic as it is contemporary. Moreover, the combination of the large dual screens up front along with AMG flat-bottom steering wheel and turbine-style air vents look promisingly posh and expensive. New Mercedes-Benz cars have some of the most sorted interiors in the industry, though that usually applies to its high-end models – the G-Wagen being one of them.

Mercedes-AMG G63 interior

The G-Wagen is a strict 5-seater, and the new model has even more space for those in the back than the earlier avatar. As expected, the G63 AMG comes loaded with several fancy features. Some of the most noteworthy options include adaptive LED headlamps, radar-guided cruise control, a 12.3-inch touch-infotainment system with Apple CarPlay & Android Auto, massaging front seats with heating & cooling function, a Burmester surround-sound system, 64-color LED mood lighting, and a power sunroof.

Mercedes-AMG G63 features

The Mercedes-AMG G63 gets more than enough safety features – including 7 airbags, electronic stability & traction control, a surround-view camera system, front & rear parking sensors, Active Braking Assist, Active Lane Keep Assist, and Blind Spot Assist. Powering this beast is a 4.0-liter bi-turbo V8 engine that muscles out 585hp and 850Nm of torque. This is sent out to all four wheels and through a 9-speed automatic gearbox, which translates to a 0 to 100 kmph time of 4.5 seconds and a top speed of 240 kmph. Overall, even though the Mercedes-AMG G63 is not as fast as some of the other high-performance SUVs out there, it is still an absolutely joyous thing to be in.

Lamborghini Urus

Lamborghini Urus exterior

Presented to the world back in late-2017, the Urus is the Italian marque’s second SUV to have ever been launched (the first being the LM002). Priced from around 1.1-million dirhams, the Lamborghini Urus is definitely not the kind of SUV you buy because you want to save on cash. Instead, this is the kind of SUV that will draw a lot of attention wherever you go. In the UAE, prospective buyers can acquire a brand-new Urus in Dubai or Abu Dhabi.

Lamborghini Urus colors UAE

On the other hand, Cars24 has a lot of certified used cars for sale in Dubai and plenty more old cars in Ras Al Khaimah. Obviously, one of the most vital details that attracts someone that wants a car like a Urus, is its exterior design. There are barely any SUVs out there that will grab eyeballs the way this Lamborghini can. While its underpinnings come straight from an Audi Q8, the Urus is an Italian bull that doesn’t know what subtlety and restraint means.

Lamborghini Urus front

To keep it looking as sporty as possible, Lamborghini has given it their “two-thirds body, one-third window ratio” design philosophy – it is used on all of its supercars. The angry front fascia of the Urus gets sleek LED headlights with the brand’s trademark Y-shaped DRLs, a deep and aggressively-molded bumper with large air channels plus a front splitter. The sharp body work continues all throughout, with the sides featuring angular wheel arches, humongous 23-inch alloy wheels, and well-defined side skirts.

Lamborghini Urus rear side

At the back, the Lamborghini Urus continues to wow with its overly-aggressive and sporty design. There is a floating roof-mounted wing, a subtle but fixed rear spoiler, stylish Y-shaped LED taillights, and four large tailpipes plus a rear ‘diffuser’. There is no denying the fact that the Urus is one of the most eye-catching SUVs in the world – it is a Lamborghini, after all. If we are talking about numbers, the Urus measures in at 5,112mm in length, 2,016mm in width, 1,638mm in overall height, and has a wheelbase of 3,003mm. If equipped as a 5-seater, the Lamborghini Urus can haul a minimum of 616 liters of cargo, which is pretty respectable for a high-performance SUV like this.

Lamborghini Urus rear

In the UAE, the Lamborghini Urus is available in colors like Blue, Black, Grigio, Red, White, Yellow, and Verde British. When you step onboard, the cockpit of the Urus will definitely seem welcoming and sporty at the same time. Add to this the carbon-fiber trim, acres of stitched leather, Alcantara, and Lamborghini’s signature ‘flip-up-style’ push-button starter flanked by two rocker switches for the drive modes & transmission – you have one of the coolest interiors in the auto industry.

Lamborghini Urus interior

The Lamborghini Urus gets a lot of modern and useful features as part of its standard and optional equipment kit. There is radar-guided cruise control, adaptive dampers with an electromechanical active roll stabilization system, rear-wheel steering, all-wheel drive with a Torsen self-locking center differential & a limited slip central differential, active torque vectoring, Lambo’s Carbon Ceramic Brakes, three fully-digital TFT screens, climate-controlled & massaging front seats, a touchscreen Lamborghini Infotainment System with smartphone connectivity, and a 21-speaker Bang & Olufsen sound system.

Lamborghini Urus cabin

Lamborghini has also equipped the Urus with multiple safety systems including a plethora of airbags, High Beam Assistant, a PreCognition system for mitigating collisions, traffic management systems, a head-up display, and many more Advanced Driver Assistance Systems are offered as well. Getting a move-on won’t be a challenge at all in this SUV. That’s because the Lamborghini Urus is powered by a 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 engine that makes a lot of sporty noises but also produces 641hp and 850Nm of twisting force. This is then sent through an 8-speed automatic gearbox, while a launch control system is available as standard too. Zero to 100 kmph in the Urus takes just 3.6 seconds, whereas the top speed is pegged at 305 kmph!

Bentley Bentayga Speed

Bentley Bentayga Speed front side

The Speed marks the epitome of the Bentayga family, and it is also the most powerful one to have been released from Crewe. Bentley Motors has showrooms predominantly in Abu Dhabi and Dubai, with the Bentayga Speed priced somewhere in the neighborhood of 1.5 to 1.6-million dirhams. And while the Bentayga is immensely popular in the UAE, most of them are not the rarified ‘Speed’ avatar, which makes this high-performance luxury SUV that much more special.

Bentley Bentayga Speed front

In case your budget doesn’t allow for a brand-new Bentayga, you can always find more affordable and practical options on Cars24. At present, Cars24 has multiple certified used cars for sale in Fujairah, with several more viable choices in the rest of the emirates. When it comes to the way it looks, the Bentley Bentayga Speed is definitely an SUV that comes across as big and muscular. And while it may not have the same sportiness and vibrancy that the Lambo does, the Bentayga is a touch more regal.

Bentley Bentayga Speed side

The front end of the Bentayga Speed boasts a large mesh grille with chrome around the sides and straight down the middle. Furthermore, the sculpted front bumper has sharp creases and stylistic features that go hand-in-hand with another chrome strip plus a lower wing. Giving the Bentayga Speed its purposeful demeanor are the its ultra-fancy, dark-tinted LED headlights, the dark-tinted grille and dark-tinted bumper-integrated intakes. Then there are the sporty side skirts, accompanied by 22-inch alloy rims, ‘Speed’ badges on the front doors, an elongated roof spoiler, dark-tinted oval LED taillights, and oval dual-tip exhausts.

Bentley Bentayga Speed rear

Generally speaking, the Bentayga Speed’s exterior is a combination of debonair and sporty. As for its color options, clients can pick almost any color or color combination of their liking. However, as standard, the Bentayga Speed is available in 17 single-tone colors and at least 24 dual-tone shades. Examples of paints offered in the UAE include White Sand, Rose Gold Over Magnetic, Mulliner Black Sapphire Over Blue Sequin, and Orange Flame Over Onyx. As you can tell by the pictures, the Bentley Bentayga Speed is quite a sizeable SUV – measuring 5,144mm in length, 1,998mm in width, and 1,742mm in height.

Bentley Bentayga Speed interior

The Bentayga’s boot capacity is rated at 484 liters, while its wheelbase spans 2,995mm. Bentleys have always been famous for their well-crafted and rich-feeling interiors, and that’s no different with the Bentayga Speed. Being the range-topping Speed model, this particular Bentayga can be had with lots of Alcantara and carbon fiber. Then there is the obligatory ‘Speed’ embroidery on the seats. Moreover, the beautifully-designed metal trim with a knurled effect and quilted leather seats really do make this cabin feel opulent and luxurious. Of course, the build quality is really good and almost everything looks & feels expensive.

Bentley Bentayga Speed features

Obviously, the Bentley Bentayga Speed gets many modern features as part of its equipment list. For starters, there is dynamic cruise control, soft-closing doors, motion-activated tailgate, adaptive air suspension with Bentley Dynamic Ride, a panoramic sunroof, power-operated, climate-controlled & massaging seats, four-zone climate control, LED mood lighting, a 10.9-inch touchscreen infotainment head unit with integrated wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, Remote connected services via the My Bentley app, a head-up display etc. The optional carbon ceramic brakes on the Bentayga Speed are the largest and most powerful brakes fitted to any Bentley till date.

Bentley Bentayga Speed cabin

Apart from that, there are loads of passive and active safety features available on this SUV – the list includes almost every modern-day safety-related item. However, what matters the most here, since we are talking about high-performance SUVs, is the Bentayga Speed’s actual performance. As the name suggests, this is one really fast SUV. In fact, with a top speed of 306 kmph, the Bentley Bentayga Speed is currently the fastest SUV in the world. This is mostly thanks to its massive 6.0-litre twin-turbocharged W12 engine that pumps out 626hp and 900Nm of torque, which translates to a 0 to 100 kmph time of 3.9 seconds.

Conclusion

Those that are looking for an expensive, powerful, luxurious and fast SUV will find the UAE to be quite a target-rich environment. Not only is there no shortage of these vehicles here, but their presence is easily felt all over the country. Even when sales declined over the past year, primarily due to global pandemic, the UAE still had wealthy folks that wanted nothing other than one of these fuel-guzzling, high-performance SUVs.

While all these SUVs are similar when it comes to categorizing them, there are some obvious differences between each of them. For instance, if you are looking to buy the sportiest and most in-your-face performance SUV, then your best choice will be the Lamborghini Urus. Meanwhile, the likes of the Range Rover Sport SVR and Porsche Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid are SUVs that look sporty enough without having to shout it from mountain tops.

Then again, we have the extremely likeable and well-acclaimed Mercedes-AMG G63, which packs in incredible on-road acceleration with some mind-blowing off-road performance. Not to mention, the Ruler of Dubai drives one of these too. You will find G-Wagens all over the region, even more so if you are in a place like Dubai, Abu Dhabi, or Sharjah. Meanwhile, the Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk is the most affordable of this bunch, but its fun factor is right up there. In short, there are more than enough high-performance SUVs in the UAE to cater to almost anyone that can afford one of these beasts.
