LEXUS SUV

WHAT IS A SUV?

The popularity of SUVs has risen in recent years, but what exactly is a SUV vehicle and how does it differ from a crossover?

WHAT IS A SUV?

First of all the basics. SUV stands for ‘Sports Utility Vehicle’, a fairly loose term but one that generally refers to stylish, sleek looking vehicles that offer elegant city driving but also handle rugged terrain thanks to a typical 4x4 capability. SUVs can come in any size – small, midsize or large.

    COMPARE

    SUV VS. CROSSOVER

    Some might argue that the above description could easily apply to a crossover, but there is a difference in the chassis. When you look at a SUV it has a separate body and frame whilst a crossover’s chassis is one single piece. Despite this difference, the names are becoming interchangeable and both types of vehicle are sometimes called 4/4s.

    SAFETY FIRST

    One of the benefits of an SUV is the safety and control it offers the driver. Vehicle Stability Control (VSC) helps prevent skidding and ensures stability when going around a curve. The Lexus SUVs also feature next generation safety features such as an advanced ten-airbag system, smart stop technology, Lexus Safety System+, and Lexus Enform Safety Connect.

    Many of the latest Lexus SUV models are driven by a Self-Charging Hybrid engine that seamlessly combines petrol and electric power. This means the vehicle charges itself as you drive, providing an interrupted journey without the need to plug into a power source.
