What most people don’t know is that SUV actually stands for Sport Utility Vehicles. That means that they are combining great driving comfort, practicality and offroad design features.
Besides being a great and spacious family car, SUVs are also a great choice for older people due to their higher entrance.
SUVs can come with many different features and different price classes. Therefore it is important to talk to your sales consultant about what is important for you, to make sure that you will get the best car for your needs and budget.
