Is a Used SUV Right For Me?
While you may rush to search for used SUVs near you, first you should understand the key components that seem to resonate with happy SUV owners. Truck and SUV sales have steadily increased in recent decades, while sedan sales have reduced since 2014. Even luxury brands such as Porsche and Mazarati have hopped on the bandwagon, producing their own SUVs. Obviously, more people are falling in love with the vehicle type for a reason.
The SUV seems to be picking up traction with buyers because of two main components; better mileage and consumer need. Most drivers buy a vehicle for their needs, such as moving goods or family members around. They balance this with the cost to do so comfortably. With the SUV, you are able to move a lot at a lesser cost than many other sedans are able to. If you find yourself in a situation where you are seeking a family vehicle or a car that can lug a lot of equipment or items around, then an SUV may be your best bet.
While SUV may seem descriptive enough, you will find that there are multiple types of SUVs to choose from. These categories are typically called subcompact, compact/small, midsize, and large/full size.
Small SUVs are also called compact SUVs, and make up the most popular type of SUV on the market today. Virtually every manufacturer produces a small SUV at this point, and the style has become the go-to family or commuter vehicle over the midsize sedan in recent years. This type of SUV is characterized by large cargo capacity and plenty of room for passengers in the back. To give you an idea, one type of small SUV would be the Honda CR-V.
Midsize SUVs are a good choice for drivers who want the maneuverability and fuel efficiency of a small SUV, but the power and space of a large SUV. One example of a midsize SUV would be a Chevy Traverse.
Subcompact SUVs combine the price and fuel economy of a sedan, with the storage capacity of a full-fledged SUV. The idea behind a subcompact SUV is to provide functionality and practicality; it provides great space and efficiency while allowing you to maneuver effectively in traffic and parking garages. A Buick Encore is a popular subcompact.
Large SUVs are also called full-size SUVs by some. They dominated garages and parking lots from the ’90s into the turn of the century. They are able to tow massive hauls and have an unbelievable amount of space inside the cabin. While a bit more tricky to handle, the large SUV offers plenty of space and power for its occupants and driver. One example of a large SUV would be the GMC Yukon XL.
