What Makes SUVs Stand Out?

While all body styles have their own benefits, SUVs have many impressive features that aren’t always offered by other vehicles. First is the SUV’s large frame which allows for plentiful cargo space and passenger comfort. Second-row seating comes standard, and some also have third-row seating that will make you carpool champion of the year. The SUV’s large size also increases its safety, due to the fact that larger, heavier vehicles can absorb more force in a collision with less chance of passenger injury when compared to smaller cars. Many SUV models also come with features that make life easier, such as extra storage under the back seats, hands-free power liftgates and driver assistance technology to help you safely navigate the roads in a larger vehicle. Finally, if you’ve heard that SUVs are gas guzzlers, think again! Many models made in the last five years are just as fuel efficient as large sedans.
