If you are looking at buying a SUV, you need to first make sure if a SUV is right for your needs.

SUV Specs

SUVs typically are large vehicles, and large vehicles are not for everyone. They normally have powerful engines, and you may not need a great engine. This engine normally drags down the car when it comes to the fuel economy, which explains why SUVs are less fuel efficient than cars. People have been wanting smaller cars instead just because of the fuel economy. SUVs are beginning to have design changes to become more aerodynamic, which is one of the main reasons why smaller cars are more fuel efficient.

Why You Need a SUV

If you have a large family and need extra space, the SUV normally would suit you better than a car. SUVs can usually seat from seven to nine passengers, and that can be a big necessity. In addition to that space for seats, there is often room for lots of cargo. This can be used to hold sports equipment, groceries, and other items. Then, if you factor in that most SUVs have roof racks (or the potential for them), that gives you a wealth of space when all is said and done.

SUVs main drawbacks are the fuel economy, and their main advantage is the space it provides. SUVs may not be right for you though due to their cost. SUVs typically run in the 30,000 to 40,000 range for the top SUV models. There are some budget SUVs, but they are much smaller, and may not be enough for your needs.
