The Toyota RAV4 has grown in leaps and bounds and is now at par with larger SUVs in terms of interior space and driving dynamics. But yet, it still lacks the crucial third row seat that made the Toyota Vanguard so popular in Kenya and many buyers are considering the 2014 Nissan X-Trail as an alternative seeing it has now adopted the third row seat. All in all, the Toyota RAV4 is an excellent SUV that is radically different and bigger than the previous generations. it competes with the Honda CR-V, Mazda CX-5, Nissan X-Trail, Subaru Forester, VW Tiguan and Mitsubishi Outlander.

Since its launch in 2005, the Toyota Fortuner has established itself as a legitimate SUV that performs almost at the same level as the Toyota Prado but it was historically hindered by rear leaf springs that gave it a bumpy truck-like ride. But now the second generation comes with coil springs all round and a new 2.8-Litre turbo diesel engine that transforms the Fortuner into a silky smooth SUV. This leads us to think it could be a better value for money than the Prado considering its lower price point. It competes with the Toyota Prado, Mitsubishi Pajero, Nissan Pathfinder and Ford Everest.

A distinction it has held for the last 50 years and doesn’t look to relinquish any time soon. In Kenya, it's favoured by the old money and the wealthy patriarchy, more so for its legendary safety than its luxury. The political class largely avoid it preferring the Toyota Land Cruiser and its lesser brother, the Toyota Prado.

The BMW X3 finds itself in the unenviable position of constantly being overshadowed by its bigger brother the X5 and has never really carved its own niche in the Kenyan market. Most people who buy the X3 would prefer the X5 if all factors were held constant. The deal breaker is usually the price but regardless, the X3 is a solid SUV that boasts of top notch safety ratings, luxurious interior and excellent performance. It competes with the Audi Q5, VW Tiguan, Volvo XC60, Mercedes GLK, Subaru Forester, Mazda CX5 and Discovery Sport.

The Audi Q5 is not getting the proper attention it deserves in Kenya and we feel it's our duty to put the good word out there. Its capabilities manifest themselves in many ways but more so when stacked up against its competitors such as the BMW X3, VW Tiguan, Volvo XC60, Land Rover Discovery Sport, Subaru Forester and Mazda CX5. The Q5 was always a top performer but the equilibrium shifted in 2013 with the arrival of the SQ5 that totally blew the competitors out of the window. Of course it comes with its fare share of problems as with any modern SUV but when all factors are considered, the Q5 emerges tops.

The Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross is named after the eclipse which is an event in astronomy that has dazzled humanity for ages. As the name goes, the Eclipse Cross is hoping to dazzle its way into the SUV market and spread its mystique across the globe like the solar eclipse it's named after.

It put on such a rousing performance that we were left in no doubt of its capabilities and only wished we could spend more time in it. Its going up against the Honda Vezel, Subaru XV, Toyota C-HR, Nissan Juke and Mitsubishi RVR.
