Why drive SUV?

Its simply the abbreviated term for a sports utility vehicle. SUVs are designed with strong off-road capabilities and the capacity to withstand harder terrains and conditions, while their comfortable interiors and light handling mean they also make ideal all-purpose or family cars.

The unique design of this type of car is characterised by a hatchback body positioned high off the ground, a sloping back and a spacious interior to comfortably seat five to seven people, depending on the size.
