SUVs are perfect vehicle choices for families, adventurers, and everyone in between. SUVs offer a level of flexibility, safety, performance and utility that is hard to find in other models. Crossover SUVs provide you with largely the same abilities as standard SUVs with a higher focus on conciseness and efficiency. Here are just a few advantages to purchasing a crossover SUV from Motor Inn.
This obvious reason will always be a top rationale to buy any type of SUV. The difference in both cargo and passenger space from a compact car to an SUV opens up a new world of possibilities. Whether you’re taking the family on a camping trip or helping a friend move, the nearly 70 cubic feet of space supplied by a crossover SUV such as the 2020 Toyota RAV4 will help you immensely.
Manufacturers are no longer building the inefficient “gas-guzzlers” of the past. For instance, consider the 2019 Ford Ecosport. This crossover SUV achieves 29 MPG on the highway, so you can enjoy the fun of driving while reducing greenhouse emissions.*
You can find advanced safety features in nearly every new car, but a crossover SUV is innately safer due to its higher weight. In addition, this segment also incorporates the latest intelligent driver-assist technologies to help keep passengers even safer.
While crossovers might not have the brawn of a larger SUV, these models are more than capable of light-duty towing. The 2019 Chevy Trax, for instance, boasts a towing range of 1,043 to 1,263, which means you can pull a small U-Haul trailer if you need to relocate or help a friend relocate.
Another advantage that crossovers have over cars is that they often have off-road potential, thanks to all-wheel drive and performance-enhancing technologies. The Jeep® Cherokee Trailhawk®, for example, includes Jeep® Active Drive Lock, a locking rear differential — as well as an 8.7-inch minimum running ground clearance — so you have the option of venturing off the beaten path every once in a while.
