Benefits of Owning an SUV

Benefits of Owning an SUV in Fletcher & Asheville, NC

If you’re thinking about getting an SUV, then you’ve come to the right place. Here’s a list of reasons why owning an SUV is the way to go for the modern driver.

More Passenger Space

While some smaller SUVs only have seating for five – the same amount as some mid-size or large sedans – SUVs still have a lot more space for passengers to adjust their seats or stretch out their legs. There’s plenty of larger SUVs that offer seating from anywhere between seven to nine passengers.

Better Safety

SUVs are typically engineered to be tougher and more rigid than cars, and because of their high ground clearance, drivers have a better view of the road from the seat of an SUV. Additionally, SUVs are also heavier and often come with standard or optional all-wheel drive, allowing them to get more traction in hazardous weather conditions.

Towing & Off-Roading Capability

Because many SUVs are based on the same platforms as pickup trucks or are at least engineered to be tougher than your average car, SUVs often have a towing and hauling capacity that lets drivers bring along even a small trailer. Plus, because so many SUVs come with AWD systems, they make for good off-roading vehicles.

More Cargo Volume

Headed out for a weekend trip and the trunk of your sedan just isn’t cutting it? SUVs have plenty more space for cargo behind the rear row – and if you need more space, folding down the back seats is always an option.

Fuel Economy

This may be a surprising thing to have on the list, but the truth is that as engineering and crafting become more streamlined and advanced, SUVs are catching up to cars in terms of efficiency. Now you can have an SUV that’s not a gas-guzzler, so getting all the benefits of owning an SUV doesn’t have to drain your bank account.
