The Mitsubishi Pajero is a longstanding car on the Kenyan roads for many years thanks to its reliability and excellent performance. Though this car has been overtaken by the Toyota Prado in popularity, many people can relate to this car as an icon. Additionally, it still lives up to its once glorious reputation. The 2013 Mitsubishi Pajero outranks some of its competitors in terms of stylish design, low maintenance and practicability. Other competitors include the Land Rover Discovery, the Ford Everest and the Nissan Pathfinder.

The VW Touareg is a capable mid-sized SUV that entered production in 2002 to serve a niche market that was initially dominated by BMW and Mercedes. In Kenya it received a lukewarm reception thanks to concerns about reliability and maintenance costs that accompany European cars. While there's merit in these concerns, which we will delve into later, the reality is that the VW Touareg is an outstanding car that boasts of top safety ratings, excellent build quality, off-road capability and sports-like performance. It competes with the BMW X5, Mercedes M-Class, Porsche Cayenne, Audi Q7, Range Rover Sport and Volvo XC90.

Lexus is pushing the boundaries of luxury with the NX and it's sparing no effort in its first attempt at the lucrative compact SUV category which it neglected in folly to chase the now declining full-sized category. The NX is fielding some of the latest technologies and finest accessories in the Lexus stable and this gamble is paying off big time going by latest sales numbers. It's directly competing with established luxury brands such as the BMW X3, Mercedes Benz GLC, Audi Q3, VW Tiguan and the Range Rover Evoque. It also competes to a lesser extent with the Mazda CX-5, Nissan X-Trail, Subaru Forester, Toyota Rav-4, Honda CR-V, and Mitsubishi Outlander.

When it comes to luxury SUVs, the BMW X5 sits at the top of a tree that features heavyweights such as the Mercedes M-Class, VW Touareg, Range Rover Sport, Volvo XC90, Audi Q7 and Porsche Cayenne. This balance of power in the European axis has existed for a long time and it doesn’t look like it will change anytime soon. A choice of any of these is as good as the other and it usually boils down to personal preference. The newly added 7 seat option in the X5 is a game changer and a clear advantage only shared with the XC90 and the Q7.

It competes with the Nissan X-Trail, Toyota Vanguard, Mitsubishi Outlander, Subaru Forester, Mazda CX-5 and Toyota RAV-4.

It outperforms most of its rivals such as the Nissan X-Trail, Honda CRV, Toyota Rav-4, Mazda CX-5, Suzuki Vitara and Mitsubishi Outlander.
