Compact cars and sedan are becoming a rarer sight these days as most families are choosing SUVs and crossovers. There are a few explanations for this trend, and we are going to answer the question, “Why are SUVs so popular now?”
- Fuel Economy. Small hatchbacks and sedans are undeniably more fuel-efficient than a larger vehicle. However, the efficiency gap between the two is growing smaller each year. Instead of being a 10-mpg gap in years past, moving up to the larger crossover might only cost you a few mpg.
- Amenities. Gone are the days when SUVs were loud, bumpy monsters. Today, an SUV can keep you just as comfortable, or even more so, than any sedan. The ride is smooth, the cabin is quiet, and it comes packed with the latest amenities.
- Versatility. A sedan is great for any daily commute, but if you use it for a family trip or nature excursion, it doesn’t hold up so well. An SUV, on the other hand, offers plenty of space for passengers and cargo — not to mention the towing ability.
- Cost. With so many crossovers and SUVs on the market — like the many we have at Linwood CDJR — it won’t cost you a fortune to buy one. For just a few thousand dollars above the price of a sedan, you can get more space and capabilities.
