If you’re buying a new car, then you’ve got a full range of options available. As well as the multiple manufacturers, you also have a plethora of car types. From tiny little superminis to big brutish SUVs; there’s something for everyone.
Having said that, you don’t really need to consider any car types other than an SUV. If you own one of these, then all of your needs are met, and you’ll be happy with your purchase. What’s so great about these cars? Well, allow me to show you the top reasons you should buy an SUV right now:

So Much More Space

SUVs provide you with more space than any other type of car. A Land Rover can have seven seats, plus ample space in the boot. Therefore, you’re able to carry more people in your car, along with more items of shopping - or anything else you might need in there. It makes life more convenient, particularly if you have a large family. Road trips no longer require two vehicles as everyone, and everything will fit in one! Plus, it adds to the comfort as well; you don’t feel squished and cramped when you’re inside an SUV.

Excellent Value For Money

There’s a common misconception that SUVs are incredibly expensive. Now, there’s no denying that some come with pretty lofty price tags, and they usually cost more than other car types. But, you get so much more car for the money. Think about it, you pay for loads of extra space, added safety features, off-roading capabilities, extra comfort, and more. Then, when you consider places like Hilton Cars Supermarket offer used SUVs, you realise how affordable these vehicles really are. With that in mind, if the cost of these cars is what’s been putting you off, then you should start viewing them in a different light. Think about how much you get for the price!

Increased Safety & Protection

The sheer size of an SUV really comes into play during auto accidents. No matter how you look at it, you will always be better off in an SUV than any other car - if a crash should happen. You’ve got more force behind you, a bulkier body, and your SUV will stand up to so much more than a saloon or supermini. Some SUVs are also built with airbags all around the car - including the back seats - which just adds to the protection everyone receives.

Off-Road Capabilities

If you want to drive off-road without damaging your car, then you need an SUV. Even something as simple as driving across a grassy field could be potentially damaging for a standard vehicle. But, the suspensions in Land Rovers and other SUVs are designed to withstand bumpy and harsh terrain. As a result, you can drive off-road, and it will feel like you’re cruising over a regular road!

At the end of the day, an SUV provides so much more than any other vehicle. You get space, you get safety, you get off-roading, and you still get excellent driving performance as well.
