There are a number of reasons to consider buying an SUV. But it is not always necessary that an SUV will be the right fit for a person. There are a number of things that beg consideration before one may reach the decision of buying a big car.
Generally, SUVs may be classified into three categories: compact, mid-sized, and full-sized. Despite these three main categories, there is still a range of vehicles within the three groups. With size, the power, space, price, etc. also move; and then there is a range from economy to luxury cars as well.
Assess your needs about what size would serve you well.
SUVs, being as big as they are, also tend to cost a bit more. For example, the Audi Q7 price in Delhi begins at almost Rs. 72.90 Lakh (ex-showroom). So, before you decide to buy an SUV, look around, based on your budget, and choose the one that you know you can easily afford.
Two vs. Four Wheel Drive
Consider what kind of driving you will be doing with your new SUV. If you normally just stick to urban areas, a two-wheel drive option will suffice. However, if you face frequent rains, bad weather, bad roads, etc. or if you want to buy an SUV particularly for off-roading, you would obviously require a four-wheel drive. Cars with two wheel drive are easier to maintain and are more fuel efficient.
Modern day SUVs offer easy maneuvering, but they also tend to be very safe. You will need to look through the available models for the safety features that you think you will need in your car.
Driving an SUV is a surreal experience, but it is not made for everyone. Before you head out to buy an SUV, make sure that you give it due consideration, to make sure that you are making the right decision.
