7 Top Reasons for Buying an SUV in Harrisonburg
The world of SUV's has gotten very interesting in the last few years. These traditionally rugged vehicles have become more car-like with increased safety features, technologies, and luxury features that were once only found on cars.
Add to that a comfortable ride that sits its passengers up higher and you have part of the equation for the increase in demand.
Here in Harrisonburg, VA, SUV's are loved by both families and singles alike, each for different reasons.
1. Passenger Seating
If you've got a family, seating capacity is a big reason to choose an SUV. Generally, SUV's accommodate seven quite comfortably. If you buy one with third row seating, the vehicle can accommodate eight.
If you're someone who routinely finds themselves carting around a lot of people, an SUV is the easy answer, and your passengers ride comfortably.
2. Passenger Safety
Sport Utility Vehicles are considered safer than cars because they have strong metal pillars that hold the body of the vehicle. It's this sturdy metal structure that becomes an extra safety roll over measure during a high speed collision.
3. Cargo Space
Another big reason people love SUV's is because of the cargo space. There's a ton of it! For those that do a lot of traveling, an SUV's luggage capacity is a big plus. Families also like it because kids can ride comfortably without luggage compromising their space.
4. Towing Capacity
Sport Utility Vehicles are the bomb for towing boats, bicycles, motorcycles. When you want to get away, SUV's can carry the extra weight!
5. Off Road Use
There's a reason why people in snowy regions rely on SUV's. Not only can they handle snow, but they can also handle terrain, gravel, or any other challenging surface.
With All Wheel Drive and Electronic Stability Control technologies now available in SUV's, they are better than ever for driving in unfavorable weather.
6. Style and Looks
With their rugged look and style, SUV's offer increased power. If you choose a Crossover Utility Vehicle, you'll get a vehicle that still has the look and feel of a sedan, but with the power of an SUV.
7. SUV Size Range
SUV's are no longer just one size. From full-size to Crossover to small, you can now get an SUV that suits your lifestyle. And for some, that may not include a lot of off-road adventures.
The subcompact SUV is great for both dense urban environments as well as for older people who want a vehicle that's easy to get in and out of, have nice upright seats, and can handle several golf bags.
Bottom line. If you're looking for safety, rugged styling, more visibility, and more seating and cargo space, then an SUV may be exactly what you're looking for.
