I know, you’re shocked by this decision. But I cannot help who I am, and I am a person who hates sedans and would love to drive an SUV.
Everyone my age wants sports cars and sedans as their permanent vehicle for most of their life, but not me. Why, may you ask?
For me, a good car is mostly about practicality rather than looks. Of course, the look of the car does matter somewhat, so SUVs are really my dream vehicle due to its practicality. Its practicality explanation is simple.
SUVs are the better family vehicle for those who are planning on having a family bigger than four.
SUVs have more room in the vehicle for emergency situation moments such as needing to move or randomly needing to drive tons of people in a carpool.
SUVs tend to be safer during certain weather conditions such as snow, ice, or rain.
SUVs hold up better than many sedans or even trucks on the market.
I’m really a big dreamer so I always think of things in my life to prepare me for whatever my future might hold. One of these dreams and preparations for my future is to have a vehicle perfectly suited for my future family and children alike.
As for the storage space idea for an SUV as my main vehicle, I always wonder about “what ifs” and that one day I might need to move big items quickly or help a friend move to a new home while saving money. I might need to carpool coworkers to a big work event!
You never really know, so I would prefer to have a vehicle that is ready for any kind of experience whether it needs some heavy duty storage space or just needs a trunk for some furniture.
I think safety is probably one of the first things I base purchasing a car on because I tend to be super anxious while driving and need to know I’m in a safe and secure vehicle on any terrain. Driving an SUV itself just provides a person with the relaxation that they are safe in a sturdy car.
I also don’t want to spend a ton of money on a car that might not last me more than 200,000 miles after a decade or whatever. SUVs last much longer than a lot of sedans in the world and definitely can cost a little bit less, too. The Kia Niro, an SUV, is around $25,00, whereas a Nissan Maxima, a sedan, is around $34,000.
These are the reasons I would absolutely prefer to own an SUV over a sedan. Of course, others have their opinions, which is fine and normal, but do not get offended or judge my being for wanting a safe, roomy, cheap, long-lasting, family vehicle.
