SUV stands for Sport Utility Vehicle, which is a versatile bodystyle that has evolved from what we used to call a four-wheel drive. These days, you can buy an SUV in all sorts of sizes, from small, to midsize, to large, with two-wheel drive or all-wheel drive.

Honda ZR-V e:HEV LX vs Nissan X-Trail Ti e-Power 2024 comparison review
The Toyota RAV4 has plenty to answer for.Firstly, it kicked off the whole mid-sized SUV craze 30 years ago, decimating hatch, sedan, wagon and coupe sales en masse, to change the way people thought about family cars.Then, in 2019, the company launched the first mainstream hybrid SUV in Australia, opening up the electrification floodgates. Now everybody wants one.Think about that for one moment. Before the RAV4 hybrid, there were none bar expensive Lexuses like the NX and RX. Rav-dical!Now there are over 15 different choices, with the Nissan X-Trail and Honda ZR-V hybrids being two of the newest on the scene.We pit these fresh electrified mid-sized SUVs against each other to find out which might be right for you.
Jeep Grand Cherokee 2024 review: Summit Reserve 4xe
Jeep Australia's first plug-in hybrid, the Grand Cherokee 4xe, has arrived at a time when the company’s sales figures need a decent shot in the arm.Though it’s seemingly spearheading a large and extra-large SUV hybrid push into the Aussie market, with the likes of a Toyota LandCruiser 300 Series hybrid on its way, the marque’s debut PHEV is only available here in the range-topping Summit Reserve spec, and only as a five-seater.So, does the 4xe have enough of a jump on any large SUV hybrid rivals – including a rumoured but postponed Ford Everest hybrid – and is it enough to give the brand a much-needed boost?Read on.
BMW X6 2024 review: xDrive40i
First launched in 2008, the BMW X6 created history (and a new car category) with its coupe styling on an SUV framework.It was a polarising effort but one that opened up the SUV market for those wanting the size and presence of an SUV without compromising on the sporty styling of a smaller car.The 2024 X6 has had a facelift and that brings a more athletic and robust kerb-side appeal that might swing a few fence sitters onto the side of liking it.The already pleasant interior has been polished with extra customisations available on trims and accents. The technology has seen the biggest upgrade and it now features a more streamlined mild-hybrid component to the engine. It all positions the X6 well and truly within the rank of luxury.For the last week I’ve been driving the mid-spec xDrive40i M Sport variant to see how the facelifted model holds its own against rivals, the Audi Q8 55 TFSI Dynamic Black and Mercedes-Benz GLE450 4Matic Coupe.
