Body Type FAQs: SUV

The term SUV stands for ‘sports utility vehicle’, which has made its way from America into the Australian automotive landscape. In short, an SUV offers buyers a larger, typically raised platform that often features a 4x4 or AWD system that allows it to push off-road. 

The recipe has since become more refined and sophisticated in recent years, with a number of SUVs positioned as family-friendly urban-dwellers rather than off-road vehicles - which has proved a hit with families. 

Depending on the size of vehicle that you’re after, some of the best value for money SUVs here in Australia include the MG ZS and HS, Hyundai Tucson, Isuzu MU-X, Toyota RAV4, Kia Sportage, Ford Escape, Honda CR-V, Mitsubishi Outlander and the Subaru Forester.

SUV platforms are often large and heavy platforms that don’t return very impressive fuel economy figures, but in recent years, they’ve come a long way when it comes to fuel efficiency. 

While fuel efficiency figures for a typical SUV can range from anywhere between 9 to 12L/100km, there are a number of fuel-efficient and even hybrid engine options on the market now that offer fuel economy figures of 5L/100km and upward.

Some of the most popular SUVs here in Australia include the Mazda CX-5, BMW X5, Land Rover Range Rover Sport, Land Rover Discovery, Toyota RAV4, Mitsubishi Outlander, Hyundai Tucson, Kia Sportage, and the Honda CR-V.
