The Bentley Bentayga is the first SUV for the VW-owned British brand. The big 5.1-metre SUV comes with two engines choices, though the only one we’re interested in for the purposes of this article is the 447kW twin-turbo 6.0-litre W12 – the torquiest (900Nm), and most expensive, SUV on the list.

BMW X5 M
The BMW X5 M might as well be a jacked-up M5 that can go off road. The twin-turbo 4.4-litre V8 punches out 423kW and can shoot from 0-100km/ in just 4.2 seconds. Of all the cars in this lineup it’s probably the model that’d feel the best down a twisty road. That said, it does weigh 2275kg.
