What is an SUV?

SUV stands for sports utility vehicle, which essentially means a sturdy, spacious and rugged vehicle that usually has 4 wheel drive. Whilst most SUVs are 4×4, sometimes the name can also apply to cars with plenty of interior space and a high driving position.

Why Hire an SUV?

There are many benefits that come with an SUV or 4 wheel drive vehicle. When you need to take advantage of these for a short time without investing in an SUV for everyday use, SUV rental is the perfect solution. Here are some of the advantages of SUVs we love:

  • Safety – these large, heavy cars are built with safety in mind. They have a strong chassis which helps to withstand collisions. The safety benefits make them an ideal choice for a family car, perfect for holidays and road trips. The higher driving position also provides a better view of the road ahead.
  • Practicality – the size and space an SUV provides makes it a practical choice when you have plenty to transport. Perhaps you struggle to fit everything in your car for a family holiday or camping trip. Maybe you enjoy a hobby like surfing or mountain biking and you want to transport all your gear. You’ll get the extra room you need with an SUV, making it a really practical and comfortable choice to hire. Most SUVs typically seat 5, with easy access through 4 passenger doors.
  • Towing Capabilities – many SUVs and 4x4s are fitted with a towbar which allows you to tow a boat, trailer or caravan. They tend to have powerful engines too, with engine sizes range from a surprisingly nippy 1.2 to a meaty 2.0 L. A big SUV doesn’t have to sacrifice on power.
  • Off Road Capabilities – many SUVs are 4 wheel drive and there are plenty of benefits to this type of vehicle. A 4×4 tends to have superior grip and is better for off roading. 4 wheel drive is also more effective in treacherous driving conditions like ice and snow.
