In today's world, Sports Utility Vehicles or SUVs have developed a character wider than being able to just off road. Gone are the days when SUVs were the choice of those who knew they would actively indulge in off-road driving. Now, these are opted by people looking for comfort, grandeur and hence, taking a queue the carmakers have transformed the idea of sports utility vehicle into one that can deliver on every aspect, one of them being speed. Here, we've brought to you a list of top six fastest SUVs in the world:
Lamborghini Urus: We thought of listing fast SUVs since the fastest one of them all, the Lamborghini Urus, has been launched in India at Rs 3 crore. It draws its power from a 4.0-litre V8 twin turbo engine paired with an eight-speed automatic gearbox. It produces maximum power output of 641 hp along with peak torque of 850 Nm. Thanks to these power figures, the Urus can sprint from 0 to 100 km/h in just 3.6 seconds and can reach a top speed of 305 kmph.

Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk: For starters, the Trackhawk shoots from 0-97 km/h in 3.5 seconds. That number can put many super cars to shame. Also , it is capable of a top speed of to 290 km/h, thanks to Dodge’s 707 hp, supercharged 6.2-litre, HEMI V8 from the Hellcat. Not exactly an engine expected in a family SUV, the torque figures are massive too - 874.5 Nm.
Porsche Cayenne Turbo: The Cayenne Turbo does the 0-100 km/h sprint in a blistering 4.1 seconds and is capable of a top speed of 283 km/h. It comes in two trims - a single-turbo 3.0-liter V6 and the Cayenne S with a twin-turbo 2.9-litre V6.
