One of them is the new Range Rover Sport: the new generation model received a monocoque body (this seems to be normal, the future electric Land Cruiser Se will follow the same path) and in-line six-cylinder engines (both gasoline and diesel) instead of V6 engines.
Prices for Range Rover Sport range from 18 to 24 million rubles; cars with in-line six-cylinder engines are available at dealers. But the top-end version with a V8 is not available, but it can be brought to order.

The fifth generation Jeep Grand Cherokee in its homeland in the USA is, one might say, a budget SUV: the price starts at 36.5 thousand. dollars (that’s 3.4 million rubles), but in Russia the car is presented as premium – and the price, naturally, is higher.

One of the major dealers offers both the regular Grand Cherokee and the three-row Grand Cherokee L version. Prices range from 8 to 16 million rubles, while all cars are equipped with a base 3.6-liter V6 engine with a capacity of 294 hp, although on the domestic market there are options with a 5.7-liter V8 and a hybrid power plant.
The new Lexus RX is cheaper in Russia. For example, metropolitan dealers ask for a car from 9.5 to 13.5 million rubles. Most cars are equipped with a 2.4-liter turbo engine, but there are also hybrid options – they are more expensive.

The latest generation Mitsubishi Outlander is an interesting model: it is built not on the original platform, but on the basis of the Nissan X-Trail platform. At the same time, the base 1.5-liter engine and the hybrid version based on the 2.4-liter engine are Mitsubishi, while the version with a 2.5-liter internal combustion engine and CVT is borrowed from Nissan. And it is precisely the last option that is the most popular: almost all Outlanders offered in Russia are equipped with it.
The minimum cost of such a crossover in Moscow is 2.9 million rubles, and the dealer gives a 5-year warranty under the terms of the official Mitsubishi warranty.
