The acronym “SUV” stands for Sport Utility Vehicle and is a category of cars with very specific characteristics.
These vehicles look similar to a high built minivan, but with their own off-road characteristics. They tend to be all-wheel cars – sporty and at the same time luxurious – and differ mechanically from the common off-road through the general absence of an adaptor (which adaptor?), and therefore is not a perfect car to drive over rough and particularly steep terrain. The origin of the SUV goes back to the 1950s. Thanks to the brand “Jeep”, it has been developed a lot and reaches excellent results in many aspects like consumption, comfort, design, reliability and driveability. Today, the most important SUV brands are Range Rover, Mercedes, Porsche, BMW and Maserati.
