By Vehicle Contracts16-01-2024

Luxury 4x4s or SUVs as they are more commonly referred to provide a specific purpose that sets these sets of wheels in a league of their own. So much so that we’ve decided to count down the best luxury SUVs available to lease on the market today.

Join us as we list off the best luxury 4x4s available to lease in 2024, in no particular order.

What is an SUV or 4x4?

If you’re on the search for a luxury 4x4, chances are you know what an SUV is. But for those who have heard the hype and want to know more, ‘SUV’ stands for ‘sporty utility vehicle’ and is accompanied by a variety of shapes, styles and functionality.

As the years have progressed the term SUV has been tagged on more and more vehicles. This doesn’t mean that 4x4s are lacking if anything they’ve developed drastically to encompass a wide range of purposes.

Initially 4x4s once just described a car that was a little more than a truck with extended cabins, now the term describes pretty much anything that is elevated above that of a normal vehicle and has an extended roofline.

If it has either of those characteristics, chances are you’ve got an SUV on your hands.

Small Luxury SUVs

Small luxury SUVs, or as they’re also known ‘compact SUVs’ and as you’ve probably already guessed they are essentially just smaller than the average SUV.

Manufacturers eventually realised that 4x4s can do their jobs just as well in a smaller environment, opening up the opportunity for less expensive, often more fuel-efficient models. They also make for easier city driving and parking due to their more compact shape.

Vehicles that are blessed with the title of ‘small luxury SUV’ have raised ride height, a more prominent and commanding exterior design, as well as lower running costs. Making for a great car leasing option for those on a smaller budget.

Large Luxury SUVs

Large luxury SUVs are basically what it says on the tin, a luxury SUV that has more space and greater off-road presence. They are perfect for large families due to their large cabin space, often having either five or even seven seats.

These off-road beauties are the embodiment of practicality and comfort, putting convenience and space at the forefront of design. Providing a roomy interior, towing capabilities, on- and off-road performance, and an unbeatable outdoor presence it’s difficult to compete on space or quality.
