SUV (Sports Utility Vehicle)

The sports utility vehicle or SUV is an umbrella term used for a variety of hardy vehicles including off roaders, 4x4s and crossovers.
At first SUVs were all big four-wheel drive vehicles intended for difficult terrains. They came with a large engine and spacious boot. Many are still designed for off road terrain, whereas the majority of the new models are for road use only.
Some of the smaller models and hybrids are perfect for navigating urban city areas, and are as easy to drive as hatchbacks. They sit higher off the ground than most other cars giving the driver a sense of security, the height also makes it easier for handicaped people to get in and out. One thing they all have in common is the comfortable drive on the motorway.
The type is perfect for families with dogs, its also ideal for people that feel safer in a larger vehicle.
