Default SUV or Car

hi guys!

last week i tested a innova and it was the first time i was trying an SUV kina vehicle (tall boy design). now the feel i got was it was a decent driving position but not the position i wud want 2 b if i want 2 ride in comfort. not the one that i wud prefer for long rides.

what is the design u prefer for ur daily drives if u had the choice between SUV (scorpio kinda vehicle) or Car (lancer kinda vehicle)?

So what exactly is your requirement - one for long rides or daily drives? Plus, the Innova isnt SUV-ish, its an MPV. There's a big difference between the MPV and the SUV in terms of the driving experience.

My preference is SUV, if it has a perfect balance between the robustness and driving-comfort. SUVs have good ground-clearance, enough space and look passionate. But they are good only if you have some offroad visits very often. For 100% city-drivers, a good sedan or maybe a hatchback is better.

In SUVs Scorpio is okay, but one would simply avoid having a Safari or Endeavour!!! They are elephants on road. :~)

CAR no doubt. I dunno why but i just feel uncomfortable sitting in the SUV due to the high seating position.

And cars are more stable and safe for some enthusiastic driving too..

And how would that help your decision...sorry, just trying to understand.

If I were to answer your poll question, it would depend on what my daily drive consisted of.....there would be occasions when I'd prefer a lancer and there would be occasions when I'd prefer a Scorpio (though, if you ask me, there are better options in SUVs and Cars than either)
