    Best SUV Award Categories

    In this award, the competing SUVs need to master three stages. Traction control on rollers, a chassis rigidity test, an offset mogul test and a 45% loose rock climb in 4L.
    This comprehensive test not only measures feel behind the wheel on our gruelling 6km hill road, we also used a state-of-the-art dynamometer load cell to measure acceleration performance and towing fuel economy.
    This test looks at overall performance. That's fuel economy over one lap of our 5km circular bowl, 0-100km/h, 100-0km/h, 1/4 mile and 80-120km/h - all key metrics that help you understand how an SUV performs when push comes to shove.
    It goes without explanation, the Best 4WD SUV is the overall top performer across all categories, taking into consideration performance and price.
