Compact sports utility vehicles (SUV) are a great deal for people who want the safety of a large vehicle and the convenience of a mid-size van. An SUV can be as large as a full-size van but provides enough space for few passengers. Its off-road capability makes it a good mode of transport on about any terrains. If you are thinking of getting a compact SUV, there are several factors to be considered before you purchase one.

Some compact SUVs may appear large from the outside but some models doesn’t have enough room for luggage. If you plan to fit in six adventure-seeking, camping-loving people inside your automobile, choose an SUV that have sufficient space for storing your equipment.

If you love off-road driving, choose a compact SUV with four-wheel drive. This feature allows you to drive on natural terrains, like rocks, sand, and mud safely and comfortably. Take note of models that have front- or rear-wheel drivetrain, which limits their off-road capabilities. However, remember that a compact SUV with four-wheel drive consumes more fuel and requires more thorough maintenance.

SUVs may have a bad reputation of having tendencies to skid and rollover, but this is not true for all models. Choose a compact SUV that has a solid anti-lock braking system, which allows the wheel to continue interacting on toehold with the road to prevent the wheels from locking up and skidding. The compact SUV must also have a high mileage to maintain a good fuel economy.

For a more enjoyable driving experience, choose a compact SUV with an interior layout that appeal to you. For example, check if the radio knob and vent levers are easy to reach that you don’t have to take your eyes off the road. Check the car seats, the seatbelts, headrests, and other parts. A number of Ford Indianapolis dealerships include modern compact SUVs with fascinating interiors, such as the Ford Escape, on their lineup of vehicles for sale.

The price of a compact SUV sold by Ford Indianapolis IN dealers depends on the available features. Today’s models may cost between $18,000 and $26,000. Make the most out of your buck by choosing a model within your budget and that has most of the features that you’ve been looking for.
