More and more brands are turning their attention to building massive, high-performance SUVs these days. And we’ve brought together the BMW X6M Competition, Porsche Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid and Audi RS Q8 to find out which is best.
Tap the video to watch the race.
First up, we have the BMW X6M Competition. This colossal coupe-SUV comes with a 4.4-litre twin-turbo V8 with 625hp and 750Nm of torque. That power is shepherded to all four wheels through an eight-speed automatic gearbox with launch control.
But, it’s a bit on the portly side. This BMW behemoth tips the scales at 2,370kg. And, if that weren’t enough, it’ll set you back more than £113,000.
Next up is the Porsche Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid. Being the hybrid version means it has a 4.0-litre V8 and a couple of electric motors that produce a total of 680hp and an incredible 900Nm of torque.
Like the BMW, it has four-wheel drive and an eight-speed automatic gearbox with launch control. But, it’s even heavier – it weighs 2,490kg. It’s also more expensive; you’ll need more than £123,000 to park one on your driveway.
Finally, we have the Audi RS Q8. This uses the same 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 as the Porsche, but it has to make do without any electrical help and produce ‘just’ 600hp and 800Nm of torque as a result.
It completes the ‘four-wheel-drive-and-eight-speed-automatic-gearbox-with-launch-control’ hat trick, and it’s the lightest car here; weighing a comparatively lithe 2,315kg. As well as being the lightest (or least-heavy), it’s also the cheapest – you can pick one up for £101,000.
But which of these vast, fast SUVs will be the quickest over the quarter-mile? Watch the video to find out.
