Sure, SUVs are very practical vehicles when it comes to seating and cargo capacity. That's why SUVs, and similarly sized vehicles like minivans, are the staple of family-centered car advertisements. They're big, they're spacious, they're comfortable, and are perfect for carpooling and hauling equipment or luggage.

However, you don't need to buy a giant and oversized SUV just to get a vehicle that has a decent number of seats and a large trunk for storage space.
