Der SUV wahnsinn
Democratic dissent is not disloyalty, it is a positive civic duty
I was parked up in the farm shop (doing my annual clothes buy ), and it went dark . Solar eclipse ? Nah , an Audi Q8 .Unless the answer is 'because I am 7 feet tall, as are my husband and 4 kids . all of whom weigh 25 stone and we carry a lot of luggage as well as our Great Dane. And we don't care how absurd this thing looks ' I really have no idea why people buy such huge cars .
It isn't the SUV status per se -nowt wrong with 4wd - but the insane bulk of the larger breeds , They don't fit car parks , multi storeys or most roads and everyone thinks you are a dick - I thought common sense and good taste would eventually kick in to limit the ultimate size. But it hasn't - so where will it end ? Everybody driving an artic?
I love our SUV (X5 30D). Fantastic for lugging the kids and the dog around, drives not far off a car, and has the 7 seats when we need it (which is quite often).
But it has no place in a city. Our "runner" is a Mini Cooper S and it's a senstational city car.
Really love my X3M40i too - not to big and fast. An SUV should not go round corners like that - 360hp and quiet subtle as well.
I had a 535d touring before and that was quick too. As a change I thought I would try the SUV. I like the driving position and the space.
My car has to do a few things. It needs to be comfortable, fun for me to drive, fit the family and kids plus the dog, it has to tow the caterham and the caravan.
No idea what to write here??!!!
The real problem here is that the quest to own an SUV or the smaller crossover has completely taken over to the point where very few people want to drive a normal 4 door saloon or hatch back. The choice of most seems to be something sporty for fun or an SUV.
This put simply adds a lot of additional weight on the roads which requires more horses and therefore pollution to drag it around
When are caterham going to make one for the upper class
I’ve got an SV it’s for the elder gentlemen who req a bit more comfort to go touring
Audi Q8 might be bad, but I recall British boxer Chris Eubank used to drive around in a Peterbilt tractor unit, which would dwarf a Q8, and have far less convenience for all the family carting stuff.
