Here are some reasons why you should consider an SUV for your Toronto driving needs.

More Space for Everything

SUVs are known for having plenty of space, whether you opt for a compact model or one with three rows of seats. Some SUVs can fit up to eight passengers with ease, offering you the people-hauling capability you need to become a carpool leader. If you like to go camping outside of the city, there are even options that make it easy for you to pack up everything you need for a rustic weekend away.

All-Wheel-Drive Capability

During the winter months, owning a vehicle with all-wheel drive can help you maintain traction when the roads are wet, icy, or snowy. AWD sends power to all four wheels, which gives your tires better grip on the road. Some vehicles have intelligent AWD options that only send power to all the wheels when you need it. SUVs tend to offer more all-wheel-drive options than any other type of vehicle, allowing you to feel confident as you drive around town.

Off-Road Ready

SUVs tend to have better ground clearance than smaller, lower vehicles. This, along with the fact that SUVs tend to have more off-road features like skid plates and Hill Descent Control, means that SUVs are typically better for off-roading, too. So, if you find yourself wanting a vehicle that’s relaxed enough for everyday driving but is still rugged enough for adventures off the beaten path, an SUV could be the best choice for you.
