However, the options today are almost endless.
These options include a variety of models, makes and colors, but what sets the models of today apart from yesterday are the wonderful accessories. These accessories can include GPS systems, cameras, climate control, Bluetooth capability, etc.
All this and the vehicles actually move. They are virtual technological units on wheels.
One such popular vehicle model is the SUV. SUV stands for Sports Utility Vehicle.
The question is, therefore, why do people drive SUVS today especially under the ecological light of limited natural resources? If these drivers were polled the inquiring individual would hear the rational of family safety, cutting edge technology and the expanse of the vehicle.
First of all, SUVS are big…very big. They loom over other vehicles on the road which provide a number of safety benefits to SUV drivers and passengers.
One such safety benefit due to the large height is visibility of the road from the vantage point provided by being in the vehicle. This gives the driver a perspective that looks over other vehicles and provides a better view of the road and what is taking place.
The obvious advantage with this unobstructed perspective is to see more of the road and observe what is taking place. This provides the advantage of anticipation and increasing the opportunity to react sooner.
Another advantage associated with the size of the vehicle is its ability to keep the occupants safer in the event of an accident. Also, the size of the vehicle makes it difficult not to be seen on the road and therefore allows other drivers to be more aware of the SUV’s presence which increases the safety factor.
Of particular interest to SUV owners is the advanced technology available as standard options.
One such technological feature, because of the size of the vehicles, is individualized climate control. This technology is beneficial because SUVS typically transport quite a few passengers and this feature provides individualized comfort.
Additionally, due to the popularity of this vehicle with families, another quality high tech feature is a reverse activated camera. This can prove to be a critical safety feature especially when it comes to protecting straying family members outside the vehicle and property.
Adding to the tech safety features of quality SUVS are Bluetooth capabilities, hands free phone dialing and GPS systems. All designed with the safety of the family in mind to allow for the driver to concentrate solely on the driving and yet have this technology available if needed with limited distraction.
n addition to the SUV being large and providing safety advantages, the SUV is large and therefore popular for both the father and the mother in meeting transportation needs. The significant room in the vehicle allows for the transportation of the family’s belongings people and family members.
The SUV is the modern day mini-van and just as practical, but with a significant flavor of glitz and glamour and a heavy dose of technology.
