Most SUVs now will seat between 7 to 9 passengers comfortably, still allotting storage space in open space trunk. This is part of the attraction of these high occupancy vehicles, especially to those with a large family. The space inside of these SUVs allows for room an comfort of each passenger. Many SUVs now even feature special modifications to allow for each passenger to have their own source of entertainment as well, such as LCD televisions in headrest, independent radio controls with headphone jacks, and even individual climate control features. These little features allow for even more comfortable trips, whether the trip is down the road for groceries, or a cross country road trip.
The ability to contain such high occupancy comes from the size of the vehicle. Usually, SUVs tend to be up to twice the length of conventional cars, and berth almost twice the size as well. This increase in size allows for additional seats and additional rows, usually two to three passenger rows, with two to three seats per row. This increase in size does not come with out a few drawbacks, though. The most notable is the difference in MPG as compared to compact cars.
Another feature about SUVs are the ability to custom even more features of an SUV. Include but not limited to are increased stereo and sound capability, entertainment options, and body alterations. These customizable features make SUVs even more appealing to those who want to ride in style.
One of the most notable and remarked features about SUVs is the ability to change between high occupancy to high storage space. Most SUVs have a third row, sometimes even a second row, of seats that will fold down and allow for more storage. In a lot of SUVs now these seats not only fold down, but fold independently, allowing for a balance between passenger space and storage space.
