To drive an SUV, or non-SUV; that is the question

With more car manufacturers getting into the SUV market it’s made many customers rethink their opinion of the Sports Utility Vehicle.

As the name suggests an SUV must be capable of handling certain situations, so do your research before you commit to one.

SUV – Versatility on Four Wheels

Sport – The vehicle must be able to keep up with your outdoor lifestyle, i.e. be your best friend when you are going skiing, rock climbing or mountain biking.  Not only transporting your kit but also getting you close enough, usually over difficult terrain, so four-wheel drive is a must!

Utility – As the word suggests, the vehicle should be useful in a range of situations. Whether it’s taking old furniture to the skip, taking the family (as well as the dogs!) to the beach or doing the school run, so get the seats folded away and see what space you have to work with.

Vehicle – It also has to be practical, we might be able to get away with a Hummer or the like if we had roads like the US but in Great Britain the roads are very different and the vehicle needs to handle the country roads that will take you to the idyllic countryside for your adventures, so think about it carefully before you make a commitment!

Possibly the choosing of an SUV can’t be made on looks alone, as that would be like wearing a pair of designer shoes while hillwalking, so make sure the vehicle you like can manage the jobs that your lifestyle and family demand.
