Many decades back, women usually ride in the passenger seat. Some were not allowed to take the wheel. The rest were too scared to do so. Today, however, most of them drive a crossover sports utility vehicle (SUV). Hatchbacks and Sedans are no longer their cars of choice.
While car enthusiasts – men and women – would go for quirky colours, supersonic speed, rugged engine and urbane styling look, women, in general, values space, convenience and practicality. Safety is also of paramount importance.
SUVs come in varying sizes and are usually also very safe to drive. One will feel secure in its spacious interior. With a preference of a taller ride height, the elevation of the seating allows for better viewing of the road when driving.
We have come up with a list of 6 crossover SUVs that might be of your interest.
The Tucson rides comfortably on rough roads. Its turbocharged engine delivers peppy acceleration and good fuel economy. It also comes with blind-spot detection and rear cross-traffic alert, among others. With its panoramic sunroof extends from the front seats to the back, stargazing at night in the globe-trotting go-getter is celestial.
Mitsubishi Outlander Sport
This badass is coupled with Japanese reliability. It is powered by the Mitsubishi Innovative Valve-timing Electronic Control (MIVEC) engines that are engineered to deliver maximum power output, low fuel consumption and a high level of clean performance. For comfort, the 8-way power adjustable driver’s seat and heated leather seating surfaces will not dash your hopes.
Toyota Rav 4
The Rav 4 customises your comfort. While the 8-way power adjustable driver’s seat with memory function and power lumbar is designed for a comfortable driving position, the rear seats are designed for both convenience and comfort. In Sports mode, the all-wheel-drive (AWD) system enhances driving pleasure by contributing to the driving and handling stability that is more suited to sporty driving.
The X-Trail is a sophisticated stunner powered by a 2.5-litre four-cylinder petrol engine which offers ample power for its size. It does not short-change on space either. Along with a roomy legroom, you will appreciate its generous boot. On the outside, one of the most significant features is the integration of LED daytime running lights that add to the aggressive quotient of the crossover in an effective manner.
Range Rover Sport
The Rover is designed for effortless performance, refinement and efficiency. This baddie is also equipped with a dedicated smartphone app which allows you to control some vehicle functions remotely. You can now check important data such as the mileage, fuel level, lock and unlock the vehicle and even adjust the climate control settings.
Subaru Forester XT
The Forester delivers spacious interior, impressive safety equipment and an outstanding visibility in a right-sized, affordable package. It has one of the highest cargo capacities in the class. While its optional turbocharged engine provides spirited acceleration, the Forester is an impressive fuel economy for an all-wheel-drive (AWD) crossover.
SUVs have proven to be a car that accommodates the many different roles we play in life. And women in this century are proving that they are as rugged and self-reliant as the car they operate. With fat cheques and the powerful positions they are holding these days, there is no doubt that they would invest on an SUV.
