SUVs ARE NOT CARS
Yes, they are popular and are selling very well around the world, but it is damn annoying when the top auto publications refer to 4WDs and SUVs as ‘cars’. They are not cars in the same way as trucks, tanks, tractors, harvesters, forklifts are not cars. Even some 4WDs and SUVs have won ‘Car of the Year’ awards and similar. Call cars, cars! Phil Bradshaw, via email Phil, while we agree for something like a Toyota Landcruiser Troop Carrier with its leaf springs and ladder chassis, a BMW X5, for argument’s sake, is much more of a car than a lumbering old 4X4.
