Hey Sassy Peeps,
If you have been following along with me on social media you know that just a few weeks ago I was in Santa Monica, California hanging out with my Heels and Wheels Gal Pals. And like always it was all about WOMEN, CARS, MORE WOMEN AND YEP, MORE CARS!
When I attended in 2017 I wrote a post for pretty much every vehicle that I drove. This year I wanted to switch things up a bit. Since the time allotted for each test drive was limited, for this post I will be providing a quick overview of the SUVs I drove and love, starting with the 2019 RAV4 Hybrid.
6 SUVs I Tested and Loved
OK, so word on the street is that the sedan is dead and SUVs are taking over. Tell us what you think after checking out this post!
2019 TOYOTA RAV4 Hybrid
The RAV4 is a true head turner! In my opinion, the bold and aggressive exterior is something VERY special. I love the sporty and fun feeling of it and also how smooth it drives. The interior is comfortable, very roomy and the large cargo space is great of shopping bags, and for as many suitcases as you need when road tripping. Starting MSRP: $27,850.00

2019 LEXUS UX 250h
OK. Let’s keep it going with the Luxury brand for Toyota. This subcompact SUV is fabulous. It’s smooth, quick and since it is a hybrid it gets great gas mileage (41 city / 38 highway). Additionally, this blue is so striking I couldn’t keep my eyes off it. Starting MSRP : $34,000.00
NOTE: UX = Urban Explorer
2019 CADILLAC XT4
When I saw that the Cadillac XT4 was apart of this year’s lineup I was super stoked. If you have followed my journey you may have noticed that this is the first time testing a Cadillac. To be honest, I have actually been dying to test ANY Cadillac. LOL!
Needless, to say I was pretty excited for this day to finally come and I have to admit I was extremely impressed. A lot of people associate Caddy’s with something that an old man drives. Well, not this one! It is fun, sexy, sleek and VERY modern. I would definitely be proud to valet this XT4. Starting MSRP: 34,000.00. Price tested: $48,645.00
Performance, performance and MORE performance!
2020 RANGE ROVER EVOQUE R-DYNAMIC HSE
I have always loved the unique and rugged look of the Range Rover. The Evoque comes equipped with a 2.0L 296 HP Turbocharged 4-cylinder MHEV, goes 0 – 60 mpg in 6.3 seconds and if pretty darn fly. I would like to drive it again for a longer period of time to get a better feel for it. Starting MSRP: $55,800.00.

2019 DODGE DURANGO SRT
I am a performance girl at heart, so BIG, BADA$$ AND BOLD definitely tickles my fancy! When we walked outside to check out the car lineup for the first time this Dodge Durango immediately caught my attention. I knew I had to get behind the wheel of this beast, and when I finally did my heart was singing. LOL!
The 392-cubic-inch HEMI® V-8 makes it America’s fastest, most powerful three-row SUV. Additionally, it goes 0-60mph in 4.4 seconds due to the 475hp. All I can say is those racing stripes and that growl gave me LIFE. This was definitely a fave of mine! MSRP price tested: $78,535.00
2019 JAGUAR F-PACE SVR
Another fave was the F-Pace SVR (AWD)! It is not only beautiful, but it is also fast, extremely powerful and magnificent! It comes equipped with a 5.0-liter supercharged V8 engine, goes 0 – 60 mpg in 4.1 seconds and its top speed is 176 mph. It is an absolute DREAM! And again that GROWL had me turning cartwheels on the inside! MSRP Price tested: $79,990.00
Thank you Heels and Wheels! I had the best time!
So Sassy Peeps, What do you think? Are SUVs taking over?? I believe they are! However, I also believe that the sedan is still alive, just a little less popular at the moment. Inquiring minds would love to know your thoughts.
