Sport utility vehicles, or SUVs for short, are in demand due to their rugged styling, tall body, high ground clearance, sturdy construction and spacious interiors. They are much safer when compared to smaller sedans or hatchbacks and can travel on uneven surfaces or dirt roads easily offering the occupants and driver a smooth and comfortable ride. SUVs are perfect for carrying sports gear, hauling equipment, monthly grocery shopping runs, carrying luggage for road trips and much more while still having enough seating space for a large group of people.

These tall, rugged and menacing-looking vehicles have a distinct road presence that is hard to ignore. Most SUVs have a 4-wheel drive which improves traction and stability in dangerous driving conditions especially when there is additional weight to carry. The increased power that is distributed across all four wheels gives the vehicle an extra boost that allows it to drive over obstacles and go up steep inclines easily.

Let’s take a look at the best SUVs that you can buy under AED 150,000
