Americans are flocking in droves to SUVs, and the luxury market is no exception. In order to win as much business as possible, luxury SUV makers have to attract the eyes of customers with better designs, cutting edge technology, and intriguing features.

With so many options to choose from, it can be hard to figure out where to look first, but we want to help. Check out our favorites for 2019 below:

Best Interior: Audi Q7
2019 Audi Q7

Why it's a top pick: The Q7 boasts interior touches like leather upholstery, wood trim, real metal accents, and high-end features like navigation and front and rear parking sensors standard. Move up the trim range, and buyers can get the full luxury treatment with features such as Audi's Virtual Cockpit, a surround-view camera, wireless phone charging, ventilated and massaging front seats, and a 19-speaker Bose audio system.

Worth knowing: The Q7 can be equipped with three rows, but that back seat is only suitable for children. Additionally, the interior of the Q7 comes with a hefty price tag that only grows as you add options and features, so be prepared to spend some coin.

Honorable Mentions: Land Rover Range Rover, Lincoln Navigator

Best Comfort: Land Rover Range Rover Velar
2019 Land Rover Range Rover Velar

Why it's a top pick: While still plenty capable off-road, the Land Rover Range Rover Velar puts a bigger emphasis on day-to-day comfort for its occupants. The Velar offers 20-way adjustable seats fitted with Windsor leather, as well as heating, massage, and cooling functionality. There's also four-zone automatic climate control, cabin air ionization, and a plethora of driving assistance features.

Worth knowing: The points we're giving the Velar for comfort largely apply to the front seats. The rear seat passengers do get some features like heating, but it's much more cramped back there.

Honorable Mentions: Mercedes-Benz GLS-Class, Cadillac Escalade

Best Value: Acura RDX
2019 Acura RDX

Why it's a top pick: Fresh off a complete redesign, the 2019 Acura RDX is now possibly the best vehicle you can find on an Acura lot. Starting at $38,395 (including destination), the RDX comes standard with a handsome interior and a variety of desirable features like LED headlights, a powered rear hatch, 12-way adjustable seats, a panoramic sunroof, dual-zone climate control, adaptive cruise control and automatic high beams. Even the highest trim with everything you could want is a pretty great value at $46,495, which is close to the starting point of many rivals.

Worth knowing: The RDX is one of the safest cars on the road today, earning an IIHS Top Safety Pick Plus rating thanks to its great crash test scores and superior standard automatic emergency braking system.

Honorable Mentions: BMW X1, Lincoln MKX
