Why choose a Toyota SUV?

SUVs have been an ever-more present fixture on UK roads for years now. But why are they so popular and should you consider an SUV for your next car? From the practicality to fashion, we’ve taken a look at the most common reasons people pick an SUV.

Space in abundance

One of the most obvious benefits of SUVs is the extra space available; a combination of a high roof, low floor and wagon shape give SUVs comparatively boundless headroom, legroom and storage space. An example of this is the Toyota C-HR interior, which showcases the abundant space you can expect from an SUV. 

Other body shapes, like hatchbacks and saloons, often offer less space for passengers and storage. If you find yourself squeezing into a smaller car frequently, an SUV may be the answer to your space needs.

Enhanced suspension

The higher ride height means that the distance between the road and the passengers is also greater, allowing for better suspension. The SUV can glide over holes and bumps in the road with less turbulence to create a smoother ride for drivers and passengers. 

Whether cruising along a motorway or navigating some challenging back routes, an SUV will be at home on most common road types.

Safety is paramount

While safety considerations should be a key buying decision for those looking for a new vehicle, this is something that is often overlooked. The sturdy exterior and state-of-the-art safety technology mean that many of today’s SUV earn high NCAP safety ratings. With class-leading features that often come as standard, drivers will feel an extra sense of security in an SUV.
