Sports utility vehicles (SUV) comprise about 30 percent of the automobile production around the world. The largest portion of this represents midsize SUVs, which began as a popular replacement for family sedans or minivans in the early 90s. The front of a midsize SUV resembles the face of a station wagon, while the rear is a bit smaller than the rear of a full-sized SUV.

A midsize SUV comes with a six- to eight-cylinder engine, which allows it to ride high and cozy on off-road environments. Like all other SUVs, it offers wide passenger space and cargo room that makes it perfect for long travels. It’s an ideal vehicle for families who love to go camping, picnicking, or travelling together. It’s roomier than the average car and travels well on fairly rough terrains. The typical models can accommodate five, but some of the latest models can accommodate up to eight passengers.

The capability of a midsize SUV to travel off-road depends on the design of its drivetrain. For instance, a front-wheel drive midsize SUVs can travel off-road although less efficiently compared to a four-wheel drive. This is perfect for families who live in areas where snow falls for much of the year, and an ideal car for the countryside.

The off-road capability of a midsize SUV does not limit it from being a good transport for city environments. Despite its brawny appearance, its refinement can compete with typical sedans and offers exterior attractiveness when parked together with other vehicles. A buyer may choose a two-wheel drive, either the front or the rear tires, to increase fuel economy and reduce insurance and maintenance costs.

Known SUVs like Lexus RX350 sold in prominent cities like Ottawa have certain similarities with pickups, particularly its towing and payload capacity. Either a brand new or a used Lexus RX350 can tow up 7000- lbs load depending on the engine’s size. Since there are several types of commercially available midsize SUVs, buyers must be careful in measuring the passenger and cargo space. Larger interior space is ideal for buyers with large families.

Buyers must also pay attention to the chassis configuration of the midsize SUV they are planning to buy. Some types are built on truck frames, while other modern types, such as a new or used Lexus Ottawa dealers offer is built on a monocoque. This allows for a stronger structure since the frame is connected to the main chassis and drivetrain.
