Frequently asked questions about SUVs

An SUV car typically has raised ground clearance making it look like a four-wheel drive car. People love the higher driving position and great view out you get in these type of cars. SUVs are generally fun to drive – that’s why Sports is in the title – but are practical for families too, with spacious interiors and decent-sized boots – which is why Utility is used in their name.

While an SUV car looks like a 4×4 they don’t necessarily have four-wheel drive. Four-wheel drive systems can be heavy, making the cars not particularly fuel efficient. Many customers like the styling of SUV cars but don’t need a car with off-road capability. That’s why many modern SUV cars today have the option to have both two- and four-wheel drive. Indeed some SUVs are two-wheel drive only.

Today, SUVs are some of the most popular styles of cars you can buy.

SUV is an acronym that stands for Sports Utility Vehicle.
