As I read this and realise that "people" prefer an SUV to a "normal" car that does the same job, I realise arguing is futile.

I would never drive an SUV - the negatives (for me) outweigh the positives (over an Audi wagon - my choice). In fact, I see no reason, other than being able to buy deuce-zeros , to buy an SUV, because I don't think they look better.

And this Board has canvassed the "why SUVs" enough times to ignore it now.
