Because they often come hand in hand, it’s commonly assumed that all SUVs are four-wheel drive. That said, although many SUVs are four-wheel drive, some can be two-wheel drive or all-wheel drive. These varying drive options allow you to pick the best model to suit your driving needs.
As mentioned above, SUVs aren’t always four-wheel drive. Some SUVs operate on two-wheel drive, meaning the engine power is distributed solely to either the front two or back two wheels, and some operate on all-wheel drive. A 4x4 is any car that has power delivered to all 4 wheels.
There is plenty of crossover; many SUVs are 4x4, but not all. SUV is a term more commonly associated with the build and design of the car, rather than the number of driven wheels.
Truck-based SUVs like the Hilux are usually sturdier and heavier with more off-road and towing capabilities.
Car-based SUVs feature unibody designs which offer a compact, secure feel and a smooth, responsive, hatchback-like drive.
There are several types and sizes of SUVs available: mini, compact, full-length, and extended. While mini and compact SUVs - or crossovers as they’re often known - have less space than their larger counterparts, they may benefit from greater fuel efficiency.
The extra seating space available in larger SUVs like the Land Cruiser often allows up to seven passengers, making them a more popular choice for those with large families.
