For those looking for the perfect blend of space, practicality, and capability, large SUVs are a great option. With a range of options available on the market, we’ll take a look at the top 10 best large SUVs in 2030 – including some electric models.

The likes of the Land Rover Discovery SUV will always be a worthy candidate, but large SUVs are so popular now that the average buyer has the pick of the bunch from nearly all the car brands.

Tesla lead the way for electric power in the SUV market, offering an ever-growing range of larger cars that still provide ample space and practicality. The Model X is a trailblazer for the market, with more manufacturers now introducing their own models – such as the Audi Q8 e-tron. Looking forward, there’s set to be an even bigger range of fully electric SUVs available before the sale of internal combustion engines is banned in 2030.

The large SUV market promises a combination of creature comforts and rugged capability. Here’s our pick of the top 10 large SUVs on the market today.

Skoda Kodiaq – 9.3/10

The Skoda Kodiaq feels like a family SUV rather than a crossover, and the grown-up style adds a real feeling of sophistication. The materials used in the interior are impressive, as is the ergonomic layout, with both comfort and legroom. In five-seater mode, the Kodiaq has a boot of 620 litres, while optional four-wheel drive provides added security and off-roading capabilities.

Land Rover Discovery – 8.5/10

The Land Rover Discovery marked a shift in the large SUV game, becoming an extremely desirable option for families. Significant improvements were made to the technology side of things, along with the car being considerably lighter due to advanced manufacturing techniques. There’s plenty of space for seven occupants and 258 litres of luggage when all seats are in use. Diesel engine options are available, with the 2.0-litre providing up to 43mpg.

Kia Sorento – 8.2/10

The Kia Sorento is one of the most popular large SUVs out there, gaining a huge following for its size, reasonable price, and a seven-year warranty. As standard, you get five seats but it can be upgraded to a seven-seat setup – ideal for family trips. With all seats in place, there’s still 258 litres of boot space, and the 2.2-litre diesel allows for up to 43mpg fuel efficiency. Not to mention the 5-star safety rating.

Volvo XC90 – 8/10

The Volvo XC90 had the huge task of filling the shoes of its predecessor and it certainly didn’t disappoint. Offering a premium and luxurious feel inside, the XC90 also packs a whole lot of tech – and it’s surprisingly light due to advanced manufacturing techniques. Plenty of space for seven occupants, plus 258 litres of luggage.

Tesla Model X – 8/10

Those who love all the high-tech capabilities of the Tesla Model 3, will feel the same effect via the Tesla Model X. The Falcon Wing doors are an added bonus, but the main draw is the four-wheel drive, dual motor system which has the potential of hitting 0-60mph in 2.6 seconds when engaged in ‘Ludicrous mode.’
The 100kWh battery is capable of a 340-mile range, with the added bonus of constant updates such as the ‘Cheetah mode,’ for changing suspension settings.

In conclusion, large SUVs are a great way to combine practicality and capability. With a range of models and electric options available, there’s something suitable for everyone – whether you’re looking for the ultimate in luxury or simply want a reliable and efficient vehicle that can take you anywhere you need to go.
