3 Best SUV cars in the market

A sport utility vehicle, better known as an SUV, is a road motor vehicle that resembles a station wagon on a light-truck chassis. It is built for either on or off road use and usually has four-wheel drive (4X4) capability. Some of the best SUVs in the market have the carrying capacity of large sedans or mini-vans coupled with the towing capacity of pick-up trucks. SUV cars offer great value for money because of their practicality, versatility and sheer luxury.
