Elegant styling; impressive power and handling ability; first-rate luxury trappings; off-road prowess
Cave-like interior; big blind spot over driver's shoulder; finicky touchscreen for the navigation system; poor fuel economy on the V8

2015 BMW X5 -- The X5 may be the only SUV with better handling, but it's not large inside, and its ride can be somewhat punishing with the bigger wheel and tire setup.
2015 Porsche Cayenne -- The Cayenne offers more model choices, including a hybrid, along with a lower base price. However, you can't get a third-row seat option, and the Cayenne can't follow the Range Rover Sport in the toughest off-road situations.
Used Mercedes-Benz GL63 AMG -- You'll get scintillating performance and more interior room in a 2011-2014 MB GL63 AMG, plus you can get a longer warranty via the Mercedes-Benz certified pre-owned program.
