More Storage Than A Sedan

As SUVs are generally larger vehicles than the average midsize sedan, this size advantage translates to more interior storage space. The rear hatchback design of SUVs also makes for easier access to the vehicle’s rear cargo area, and the versatility of fold-flat rear seats further increases interior storage capacity. 

Increased Passenger Comfort 

Building on the previous point, an SUVs larger size also means that there’s more interior space for passengers to enjoy. Front seat passengers have the ability to move their seats further back and recline to their heart's content, while rear passengers can enjoy a larger seating area when compared to conventional sedans.

Higher Ride Height & Better Road View 

Another benefit of SUV ownership is the increased ride height and ground clearance. As SUVs are typically taller than sedans, drivers enjoy a higher seating position that gives them a more expansive view of the road ahead. 

Car-Like Driving Dynamics 

With modern SUVs, the uncomfortable, truck-like driving dynamics have, for the most part, been eliminated. Thanks to the popular unibody design that most late model SUVs have adopted, drivers can expect a vehicle that drives similarly to conventional sedans. Most SUVs are also offered with intelligent all-wheel drive systems that give the vehicle added traction when necessary, a welcome feature especially on Sudbury’s snow covered roads.

Safer Than Smaller Cars 

As SUVs are typically larger vehicles than the conventional sedan or hatchback, physics states that in the unfortunate event of an accident, a larger car will take less damage than a smaller vehicle. This fact, along with the plethora of modern safety systems and collision avoidance technologies equipped on late model SUVs makes them a safer mode of transportation when compared to smaller sedans and coupes.
