Add the Autopilot if you really want, but know your local laws before opting for the "full self-driving" capability package.

Some places may not allow it, and it's better to wait until later and pay more than break the law.

Quick Specs
8.2
The 2017 Tesla Model X is in a class of its own as an all-electric luxury SUV with breathtaking performance, and an equally intimidating price.
7.7
A pop culture icon in its own time, the Cadillac Escalade offers unmatched gravitas and presence—if that's your thing.
8.8
Few vehicles match the 2017 Range Rover's luxury and performance on pavement; fewer still can keep up with it when the pavement ends.
5.6
A Mercedes-Benz G-Class isn't a logical buy, but that's just why it has endured so long. Not everyone wants an economical sedan, after all.
7.0
The 2017 Porsche Cayenne is versatile and roomy, yet it possesses road and even track performance to satisfy enthusiasts.
8.6
The 2017 Bentley Bentayga is the first SUV from the automaker and is befitting the name. The Bentayga may fall closer to the Continental than it does the Mulsanne, but we're guessing most only care that it's a Bentley.
