+1 for me.



1) The X6 looks best, except from the rear. Especially in black!

2) I LIKE the Audi Q8.. love the shape and exterior from all angles.

3) The Porsche just looks weird. It and the MB look like they have no front fascia... they just look goofy. 911 looks great... a 911 floating 18" off the ground... looks like an AMC Eagle wagon from back in the day. The black wheels don't do it for me here either....

4) That MB is ugly on the outside and the inside.

Gotta say .... I like the Audi best.

But I'd probably buy an X3M Competition instead.

The Porsche is the ugliest of them all!
For me is like all those desktop box computers: very few managed to get out of that design cliche.

Porsche is the most boring design for me. And that “distinguishable design” is just an overly played expression. Might not like everything about the rest, but they do show initiative, courage and imagination.
The main reason I never looked at Porsche, they lack imagination and the reiteration of a 100 years design is like going out with a lady that wears the same dress that my grandma did....

They're all atrocious, but if I had to pick one it'd be the cayenne based on the interior.

X6 definitely has the best looking face. Rear… as mention before, only a mother could love.

Merc really looks like a turtle on stilts, but that rear is 10x better looking than all of them.

Audi does have the best silhouette out of all but loud colors bring attention to that gaping koi fish mouth grill. In all black, this would be a killer.

Porsche does look mundane and outdated compared to the rest. Hate that retractable spoiler that throws off the cleanliness of the design.

well technically the GLE is out of this comparison until the GLE 63 Coupe is out..
Love the RSQ8 and Cayenne coupe but i'd definitely take the X6M.

Yup, the Audi Q8 wins it for brilliant design and refined aggression.
What a presence!

Not to mention an interior miles ahead of the X6

I gotta say, the Audi RSQ8 interior certainly is classy.

Wait till the gloss black gets scratched and full of fingerprints after a couple of days. I loved Audi's older interiors, while these are tastefully styled, I'm not a fan of the materials and over use of touchscreens over physical controls.

I figured it would be. The X5 is a looker itself. I just can't do the rear. It's like it was smash into a wall and never pulled back out.

Interiorwise I prefer the BMW followed by the Audi. Exteriorwise none of them do it for me.

That green Audi looks so good. In comparison to the others. Maybe because it looks more like a wagon.

Side profile Audi wins looks like a bigger a1/a3 sportback(hate the term tho still dont know what it implies). Dont know why it exist tho its not a coupe just a better styled q7 which it could've just replaced. X6 too sloping like someone said.
Porsche really dont know why this model exists over the normal one it's so similar.

Nose BMW. Merc looks very old and droopy. Audi front dont know what to feel actually nothing cause it looks like a emotionless german robot.

Rear BMW but only for being so forward looking. Merc rears all terrible sad looking.

Interior Audi followed by Porsche. Much cleaner and futuristic than bmw and merc looks the oldest. Still all look very German and by that just merely utilitarian.


Honestly I'd just get the x5 best looking SUV in recent years in my opinion.
