Robust, powerful, and offering a spacious interior, SUVs are loved by those who relish the thrill of off-roading, who need to tow, or who crave extra space in their family car.
An SUV showcases a body-on-frame construction, a rigid chassis, and strong suspension, which, when added to the high off-ground clearance, means you can take many of these sturdy cars off the beaten track.
A compact SUV, such as our Lexus UX, makes a great urban vehicle, being light to handle and easy to park. This might not be your first choice if towing and bumpy dirt tracks are on your itinerary.
Mid-size SUVs provide great space for passengers and cargo, as the roomy Lexus NX demonstrates. With most having a bigger engine than a compact, these cars have the power to tow and to take on light off-roading. The all-new RX 350 burst onto the mid-size SUV scene this year, offering a refreshingly elegant drive with its immersive cockpit and 2.4 litre turbo engine.
Space for extra passengers can be a key draw for families buying an SUV. The Lexus GX boasts three rows of seats and, like other seven-seater SUVs, is ideal for growing families or people who like bringing their friends along for adventures.
But these seven-seater models aren’t for everyone. Two-row, five-seater SUVs such as the Lexus UX are usually a little more compact, making them agile cars for urban living. Two rows of seats also often translate to a larger cargo capacity in the rear for those who can't pack light on their road trips.
You’re spoilt for choice with styles, from the compact, mid-, and full-size SUVs you’ve already read about to luxury models that bring the practical prowess of an SUV with the high-end refinement you’d expect from a luxury car.
The crossover SUV style is becoming increasingly popular, too. Bridging the interior space gap between a sedan and an SUV, crossovers like the stylish Lexus NX give you extra room and the ability to undertake some gentle off-roading.
