9 Reasons to Rent an SUV for Your Road Trip

Wazzup Pilipinas!?

A road trip is a perfect way to spend a weekend or vacation. It would be a great idea to explore the hot Death Valley, picturesque Yosemite National Park, or ride the amazing serpentines of the Rocky Mountains. All you need to do is rent a car.

Unfortunately, a compact or full-size car or minivan may not be enough for you, since difficult road conditions require special technical characteristics of the car. In such a situation, the best solution is to rent an SUV.

SUVs and crossovers began to dominate the global car rental market. Over the years, they have confidently gained popularity, and now they make up about 25% of all offers. So, the high demand for SUVs means this is a really great choice.

Looking to rent an SUV for your next trip? Here you will find a large selection of small, medium, and full-size models for any taste. A vehicle like this guarantees a great travel experience wherever you go. However, if you're still in doubt, here’re some strong reasons to pick up a rental SUV.

Stylish Exterior

What motivates us to look excellent and beautiful enough in the eyes of the people around us? Of course, this is vanity. And there’s nothing wrong with that. The same goes for a car because you always want to drive one that looks beautiful.

Surely you don’t like some cars because of their unattractive appearance. At the same time, SUVs look pretty because of their aggressive styling. It's all about their brutal exterior. This is exactly what is often lacking in modern sedans and hatchbacks.

So, we have the first reason why SUVs are becoming so much more popular than all other cars around the world.

Better Visibility

Thanks to their larger dimensions and bigger wheels, SUVs offer a higher driving position along with a more spacious interior. As a result, the driver and passengers can enjoy excellent visibility. The SUV driver sees much more space in front of him. Plus, these cars have fewer so-called blind spots, which has a positive effect on safety in general.

Of course, there are some exceptions, but still, the visibility of most SUVs is much higher and better than those in conventional cars.

Excellent passenger capacity

Usually, a small or medium SUV can accommodate up to 5 people. However, today you will also find many full-size models with three rows of seats, which can accommodate 6, 7, and even 8 passengers. Moreover, the third row of seats is often suitable not only for children but also for adults.

If you have a large family and you often rent a car for road trips, then a 7-seater SUV will certainly be an excellent choice. As spacious as a minivan, it gives you all the benefits of an SUV.

Large trunk

In addition to excellent passenger capacity, SUVs also have a large trunk. This is one of the reasons why today travelers are increasingly choosing SUV vehicles.

Yes, almost all of us want to drive a spacious car with a large trunk. After all, you need to fit a lot of bags, personal belongings, and equipment in the car.

High ground clearance

Almost all SUVs have high ground clearance - this is their main difference from conventional hatchbacks and sedans. Also, this is another significant advantage of this vehicle group. High ground clearance and four-wheel drive allow travelers to drive their SUVs not only on the highway but on a country road too. Also, the high ground clearance gives a huge advantage in winter, when the road can be covered with a large layer of snow.

Easy camper towing

Do you like camping and everything related to it? If so then the SUV is the most suitable car for you. First, you will fit all your gear in the trunk. And secondly, the SUV has a powerful engine and four-wheel drive, which allows it to easily tow a small or mid-size camper. You can also tow a trailer with a boat or buggy, and be sure that the SUV won’t let you down in any off-road situation.

Better handling in all weather conditions

Not many popular sedan cars have an all-wheel-drive option. However, with SUVs the opposite is true. Almost every model has a four wheel drive and improved suspension performance. High ground clearance and four-wheel drive give the driver more confidence on the road in all weather conditions.

Imagine driving in heavy rain. On an SUV or crossover, you will be much calmer than on a sedan or hatchback. The same goes for snowy weather. True, if ice covers the road, then the advantage of SUVs over other cars won’t be so big.

Excellent fuel efficiency

Believe it or not, many SUVs are very fuel-efficient, and even more efficient than some of the popular compact cars. As a rule, such SUVs have small turbocharged power units, which allow you to count on low fuel costs.

Also, despite their body size, many SUVs have a much lower air drag coefficient than some passenger cars. Plus, many SUVs now have a hybrid engine, which makes them even more fuel-efficient.

Great safety in case of an accident

According to Isaac Newton, force equals mass times acceleration. So, SUVs have great force due to their greater mass, which means they are much safer when they get into an accident.

As evidence, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) has repeatedly noted that new modern sedans or hatchbacks are not as good at safety as larger SUVs and crossovers.

In summary, an SUV is a car that has all the characteristics of a sedan and a hatchback, but at the same time offers unique advantages. This makes it a great choice for your road trip wherever you go.
