For a long time now, SUVs have been king of the road. While these
vehicles are still very popular with car buyers today, there has been
a noticeable increase in interest in wagon-style vehicles. Carmakers
are responding to consumers who want the cargo space and
people-carrying capacity of an SUV, but need the lower profile and
better gas mileage of a sedan. There are many pros and cons to
consider when deciding whether to choose a wagon or SUV as your next
vehicle. Learning as much information before heading to the
dealership will make it much easier to make a final decision that is
best for you and your needs. Here are a few things to keep in mind if
you’re in the market for a Volvo
V60 in the Rockford area.
Tires and Mileage
The larger a vehicle’s tires are, as well as its overall size, the
more fuel it consumes and the harder it may be for some drivers to
control. It’s a good idea to consider how much fuel you can
realistically afford in your monthly budget and use that information
to guide you into choosing a vehicle that has a suitable fuel
economy. It is also important to sufficiently test drive a vehicle to
make sure you feel comfortable driving it.
Safety and Height
Another consideration related to vehicle size is to make sure that
you choose a vehicle that you and your family can easily enter and
exit in a safe manner. SUVs tend to have a high profile that requires
stepping up into the vehicle. This may be a problem for small
children, disabled persons or older adults. Wagons offer a lower
profile that is fairly easy for most people to enter and exit.
