SUVs surround us. It is not difficult to realize that these types of crossovers have multiplied in recent years and are already present in all segments. Part of that success is its height, versatility, and roominess . In other words, it is a perfect type of vehicle for day-to-day use to take the children to school, do the shopping or do some errands; as well as to spend a weekend in the countryside or go on vacation. Even its designs have made many fall in love with its power and elegance, a power that also triggers a lot of safety and reliability. However, being, for the most part, heavier and taller cars, efficiency is not its strong point, unless you opt for electrified options. Even in maintenance it will be somewhat higher, but not everything will be advantages.
Within the SUV segment there are smaller and larger ones, as in traditional vehicles. In general, the larger ones offer great roominess and luggage space, and even include the option of a third row of seats to accommodate up to 7 passengers. Some examples are the Hyundai Tucson, the Peugeot 3008, the Toyota CH-R, the Nissan Qashqai or the Seat Ateca. Although the most demanded are the most urbanites, which offer you an attractive aesthetic and unparalleled dynamism . Here we opt for models such as the Vokswagen T-Cross, the Renault Captur, the Peugeot 2008 or the Seat Arona. In fact, the latter has been the most registered model in Spain during the past year 2021. But it was not the only best-selling SUV, as the definitive ranking of the ten best sellers shows us:
