Porsche Cayenne Front

The Porsche Cayenne is one of the most expensive premium SUVs that you can buy in Malaysia today. It starts at a price of RM 790,000 and goes all the way up to RM 940,000, depending on the variant you pick. It is also one of the gorgeous-looking SUVs that’s available.

The front is very Porsche-ish, and that it should be, with a set of LED headlights with integrated DRLs. Its large bonnet has got a couple of streak lines and is curved towards the front. This must be to reduce the drag and make the SUV more aerodynamic. The grille is divided into three sections which also act as the air intakes. Moving towards the rear end of the Porsche Cayenne you would be greeted by a roof-mounted spoiler and wide and narrow LED tail lights which beautifully merges into the Porsche logo at the centre of the tailgate.

4- BMW X6

BMW X6 Front

BMW has been making SUVs for quite some time now. It has slowly expanded its range of SUVs over the years. They fall under the ‘X’ badge. Price at RM 628,800, the BMW X6 is something that you can buy if you’re a pure BMW fan but have requirements of an SUV.

Being a BMW, the X6 looks similar to most of the BMWs - a two-piece kidney grille at the front, flanked by BMW signature headlamps and DRLs. BMW keeps on altering these elements on its cars depending on the type of car it is. The X6 demands a bit of aggressive stance without compromising the sportiness and BMW-ish look. So that’s what it gets. And the front bumper compliments the overall appearance. The highlighting feature of the BMW X6 is its sloping roofline. BMW has given the X6 a coupe-like look, which is something that not everyone is a fan of. You will either love it or hate it. It does look pretty cool, though.

The interior of the BMW X6 is pretty simple and driver-oriented. But that doesn’t mean they’re any less luxurious than that of its rivals. A good amount of leather has been used to up the overall quality of the cabin, which is already top-notch. There are a number of color options that you can pick for the dashboard, and you can also choose the wooden panel. The cabin of the BMW X6 is quite comfortable. The seats are nicely done and provide a good amount of thigh support. There’s also ample amount of space for the front passengers. However, the rear passengers might feel a bit cramped because of the less headroom as a result of the sloping coupe-like roofline.

BMW has blessed the X6 with a 3.0L straight 6 TwinPower Turbo petrol engine that has been tuned to produce 306 bhp of max power and 400 Nm of peak torque. With the help of this powerful engine, the X6 is capable to do a 0-100 kmph sprint in just 6.7 seconds. And it has a top speed of 240 kmph.

The X6 should be fun to drive but its larger dimensions could be a bit problematic for city driving. Also, its sloping roofline restricts the view of what’s behind, so parking could be a challenge. Another downside of being this fat is poor fuel efficiency - 10 kmpl.

Priced at RM 628,800, the BMW X6 is available in 6 colors - Alpine White, Glacier Silver, Carbon Black, Space Grey, Flamenco Red and Sophisto Grey Xirallic.
