What is an SUV?
In the UK we just love an SUV! Short for Sports Utility Vehicle, we just can’t get enough of this robust bodystyle.
Why? Well many people prefer the elevated driving position, roomier interior and chunkier styling that’s part and parcel of an SUV.
Before the SUV style really took off, all SUV were 4-wheel drive; now with the bodystyle so popular, the 4-wheel drive element is just not necessary for many drivers, after all who needs the extra weight and lower fuel economy of a 4x4 on the school run or dashing around town?

Size-wise SUV now come from the cute and ultra-compact, right up to the more traditional big beasts; all you need to decide is which one best suits your lifestyle.
