SUVs ARE NOT CARS

Motor (Australia) - - FRONT END. LETTERS -

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.
