Benefits of Owning an SUV Evansville IN
Crossovers and SUVs are making a comeback in America as fuel prices continue to hit new lows for this decade. SUVs are reliable, powerful, and, surprisingly, efficient—making them wonderful vehicles to own. Here are a few of the benefits of owning an SUV.
If you have a larger family or a more active lifestyle, you’ll appreciate the extra space afforded by SUVs. Take the Kia Sorento, for instance, which offers up to 154.2 cubic feet of passenger volume and 122.3 cubic feet of cargo volume (seven-passenger models). This spaciousness makes long road trips with the kids a piece of cake.
SUVs give you the towing power of trucks without sacrificing the seating capabilities, the stylishness, and the efficiency of smaller vehicles. With an SUV like the Kia Sportage, you can tow the boat out to the lake for the weekend and have the room to pack the family (dogs and all) inside. At the same time, you’ll still get incredible fuel economy, thanks to advances in SUV technology. The Sportage, for example, yields up to 30 miles per gallon on the highway.*
SUVs, for their sheer size, already have a leg up on smaller cars in terms of safety. And thanks to advances in safety technology, visibility, which used to be a pain point for SUVs, is a thing of the past. Take for example the Kia Niro, which offers Kia Drive Wise, Kia’s suite of available driver assist technologies. Active and passive safety features abound in SUVs, making them perfect for transporting your most precious cargo: your family.
Gas prices may be dropping, but you still don’t want to have to shell out more than you need to. In recent years, crossovers and SUVs have become incredibly efficient as gas-powered models, but automakers are also offering hybrid and electric variants for improved efficiency. In Kia’s lineup, you’ll find the Kia Niro Hybrid and the Soul EV.
