Originating in the United States in the 1960s, this type of vehicle quickly conquered the hearts of American consumers and, more recently, Europe, thanks to its great versatility.

SUVs: The Advantages
The great strength of sport utility vehicles lies in their versatility. In fact, their dimensions allow for a large load capacity as well as, in some cases, a row of additional seats that can bring their total to seven or eight. Moreover, the robust construction of SUVs makes them extremely safe.
SUVs: The Disadvantages
Since SUVs generally contain powerful engines under the hood and have curves which are less aerodynamic, while being heavier than the average vehicle, these vehicles are less energy efficient. As such, you can expect them to have a negative impact on the environment and on your wallet. So, you might wish to consider a more environmentally friendly hybrid SUV model, which manufacturers occasionally have on hand.
