• The Dow Jones has solidified its position beyond the 15,000-point milestone. The unemployment rate has gradually fallen to 7.6 percent, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. The average consumer has breathed a little easier these days.

    What to do with the extra cash that may finally be starting to accumulate in your bank account? Well, you might invest it or save for a rainy day. But you’re not here for financial advice.

    If you’re shopping for a new vehicle, and if you’re looking to pamper yourself a little, or both, you’ve come to the right place. Our friends at Kelley Blue Book have compiled a list of the Ten Best luxury SUVs on the market today. Here’s a look at their findings:

    8. BMW X1

    Sticker price: $30,800 - $38,600
    Invoice: $28,335 - $35,510
    Fuel economy: 23 mpg City, 34 mpg Highway

    The X1 definitely falls into the 'small SUV' category, and is a terrific introduction to BMW's lineup. It is both smaller and more nimble than its X3 sibling, and delivers terrific gas mileage for its segment. And, of course, comes with the European luxury you'd expect from BMW.

    Invoice Price: $32,430 - $33,726
    Fuel Economy: 19 mpg City, 27 mpg Highway

    One of the best things about this SUV is the space it allots for both front and rear passengers. You won’t feel crammed in the back, should you desire to ride there. Another bonus: there's a lot of equipment that comes standard on the RDX you'd pay extra for on other models.
