SUVs have long been known for their capability and many come equipped with additional safety features such as blind-spot warning systems that use cameras to alert drivers when other cars are nearby. Other features may include 360-degree rearview cameras or parking sensors.
But as potential director Leo Murray points out, they can also serve as “consumerism’s ultimate “positional good”, providing consumers with an excuse not to consider environmental concerns when making purchasing decisions.
SUVs typically include various safety features. These may include anti-lock brakes (ABS) that prevent tires from locking up during hard or sudden stops and rollover protection systems.
Other technologies found on SUVs include lane-keeping alerts that alert drivers of nearby vehicles, as well as adaptive cruise control that adjusts its speed to match other cars in traffic – these systems help drivers maintain focus on the road while avoiding distractions.
Some manufacturers also provide rear-seat reminders, which use sensors to detect movement and sound an alarm if something has been left behind in the back seat after driving has ended.
An SUV has long been the go-to vehicle for drivers looking to navigate rough terrain with ease. The raised ride height provides additional ground clearance and offers drivers a commanding view of the road, with many models featuring all-wheel drive for maximum traction and control.
SUVs also provide drivers and passengers with numerous infotainment features to keep everyone entertained, including weather updates, traffic alerts, customized driving directions as well as music or audiobook listening capabilities.
EQE SUV components feature several eco-friendly materials. This includes grab handles made from recycled plastic from chemical recycling that helps decrease fossil-based raw material usage and the high-voltage accumulator of its battery sourced pyrolysis oil from recycled used tires which helps close material cycles and decrease CO2 emissions.
Modern SUVs are built for performance, featuring elevated ride heights for increased ground clearance and eye-catching exterior designs that draw the eye. They can carry gear for road trips while offering multiple rows of seating to comfortably transport families and friends alike.
Some used SUVs, known as truck-based models, can be used for more challenging off-road driving but aren’t intended to handle extreme conditions like rocks or deep water. Car-based SUVs – also referred to as CUVs – share chassis with regular passenger cars for improved handling and ride comfort over body-on-frame trucks.
Some models feature a power-operated hands-free tailgate to make loading equipment easier, as well as more spacious cargo areas and can easily accommodate larger trailers. SUVs typically include features like the ENERGIZING AIR CONTROL Plus with its high-efficiency HEPA filter to clean incoming air, and the ENERGIZING COMFORT programs which help drivers feel their best during long drives or while parked at home or work; additionally EQE SUVs feature Dolby Atmos(r), an immersive surround sound system with three dimensional audio quality that surrounds drivers when driving the vehicle.
SUVs provide more space and greater visibility on the road for drivers looking for more than compact sedans or station wagons can offer. Many come equipped with flexible cargo space and higher driving positions for improved visibility on the road; additionally, some even feature off-road capabilities.
Small SUVs such as the Honda CR-V, Kia Sportage and Hyundai Tucson can make great family vehicles with spacious cabins that comfortably seat eight. Some offer power-operated hands-free liftgates to make loading and unloading simpler; many also feature all-wheel drive to provide greater control on challenging terrain.
Luxury SUVs provide tech enthusiasts with all of the glitz, glimmer and prestige they seek. When searching for one, look for features such as premium cabin materials, cutting-edge refinement technology and powerful performance capabilities – some even provide access to Tesla’s charging network!
