Sports vehicles always have a place in the automotive world, and that trend continues into 2019. From coupes to sports SUVs, there are plenty of sports vehicles that you will want to get behind the wheel of in 2019. Some of these are familiar vehicles that have been around for ages, while others are newer additions to the market. The common theme is that all of the following vehicles have great performance and a sporty vibe, making you want to own and drive them in 2019.
Bentley Continental GT
Those with larger budgets will be tempted by the Bentley Continental GT, as they likely have been in previous years. This coupe gets a redesign for the 2019 model year, with more refinement throughout. The engine is a very powerful 6.0-liter W12 and delivers 626 horsepower. Thanks to the engine, even the heavy, large Continental GT can reach 60 mph in just 3.6 seconds. To make this sports coupe even more appealing, it has an electronically controlled suspension with drive modes and a luxurious interior complete with hand-trim.
If you love SUVs and electric vehicles, then the Jaguar iPace will be the sports vehicle that grabs your attention in 2019. This is a compact model and is the brand’s very first full-electric vehicle. It combines the body style of an SUV with that of a sports car, complete with coupe-like styling. Despite its clear coupe influences, five passengers can sit in comfort. In terms of performance, the iPace has twin electric motors to deliver 394 horsepower and uses a one-speed transmission. The lithium-ion battery pack gives it a range of almost 240 miles. This electric sports SUV can also hit 60 mph in 4.5 seconds. There are even advanced settings like artificial intelligence to learn your preferences then automatically adjust the radio station, seat position, and climate control depending on the time of the day.
If you want a luxury brand’s take on the crossover SUV sports vehicle, look no further than the Lamborghini Urus. While it comes with a hefty price tag, you do get 650 horsepower from the 4.0-liter twin-turbocharged V8 engine and eight-speed transmission. Expect to get from zero to 60 mph in 3.5 seconds and to take advantage of all-wheel drive. Other features include four-wheel steering, active torque vectoring, active roll stabilization, carbon-ceramic brakes, adaptive air suspension, and a cockpit that reminds you of an aircraft.
Yet another sports SUV that you can only dream of driving unless you are wealthy is the Rolls-Royce Cullinan. This is the first ever SUV from the automaker, and it follows the performance credentials of other Rolls-Royce vehicles. The 6.75-liter V12 is twin-turbocharged to deliver 563 horsepower with the eight-speed automatic transmission. The Cullinan is named after the biggest diamond to date and looks formal. In addition to the performance chops, the Cullinan can be configured for those who want to drive themselves or those who prefer to be chauffeured around, with either a rear split-fold bench seat or rear multi-function bucket seats complete with a mobile bar and fridge in a rear console.
