Over the past ten years, it seems as if SUVs have gained popularity and become the family vehicle of choice. Here, we delve into the reasons why SUVs have become more popular and why you should choose an SUV as your family hauler.
Lower gas prices
Gas prices dropped in the last decade and have remained relatively low since doing so. With this dip in gas prices, you don’t have to worry about spending as much on fuel for your SUV. Crossovers and SUVs are also more efficient than they once were, and some even come with hybrid or all-electric powertrains.
A spacious interior
One of the biggest draws for SUVs is the fact that they tend to be large, making them superior when it comes to space. More space means that you can pack up more luggage, more furniture and more people. For instance, with the 2021 Honda Pilot, you can get up to 109.2 cubic feet of cargo volume and up to eight seats. That’s nothing to shake your head at.
A safe design
Lots of SUVs and other large vehicles are already on the road. Driving around large vehicles while you’re in a smaller car can make you feel unsafe. Opt for an SUV to feel safer while driving around Sherwood, Arkansas, and have better visibility, thanks to the higher ride height.
