If you’ve always owned sedans, it’s easy to overlook SUV and crossover models when shopping for your family’s next vehicle. Here are just five advantages that SUVs and crossovers deliver, when compared with sedans.
Though sedans offer a five-passenger capacity and moderately-sized trunk, crossovers and SUVs boast a bit more room. They also have customizable options for configuring seating arrangements as well as the trunk, so you can maximize space. For instance, the Mitsubishi Outlander can seat seven people, but you can fold down the second and third rows depending on whether you need more space for people or possessions.
Maybe you’ve always hesitated to buy an SUV or crossover because you figured they’re all gas guzzlers, and you care about affordability and efficiency. When you go with Mitsubishi, it’s easy to find a fuel-efficient SUV like the Outlander, which gets 30 mpg on the highway.* Even better, the Outlander PHEV boasts 74 MPGe.**
Let’s face it: because SUVs and crossovers are made for families, they’re more likely to offer more extensive packages with the latest safety features. They’re also a lot more likely to come equipped with all-wheel drive and advanced driver-assist tech to ease your mind. Plus, these models usually boast a decent ground-clearance, so you can traverse rocky terrain without worrying about scratching the vehicle’s undercarriage.
You might not need the extra seating, huge cargo space, or towing and hauling capacity every day. However, you’ll have the advantage of being prepared for the occasions when you need a bit more muscle and interior capacity. An SUV or crossover is better suited for moving to a new place, towing a boat to the ocean, and accommodating some extra passengers than a sedan.
Though SUVs are a bit pricier than sedans, they are more affordable than trucks while offering some of the same capabilities associated with this auto segment. If you have average needs for spacing and towing brawn, an SUV or crossover is usually a more frugal option than investing in a pickup.
