I hate them. 2L is all you need.

I can't understand the appeal of SUVs. They are totally unnecessary unless you actually go offroad. On road, a station wagon will do everything an SUV will do, use less petrol and be cheaper to buy in most instances.

Or even less than 2 litres. The car I drive has a 1.4 engine with a turbocharger for when you need a bit more power. I've never tried it, but apparently it can do zero to 100km/h in 8.4 seconds. For normal driving it does around 5 to 6 litres per 100 kilometres. Try getting that sort of fuel economy out of an SUV.
Sure God created man before woman. But then you always make a rough draft before the final masterpiece.

I was feeling generous. My 2L turbo gives a decent felling of get up and go for a midsize. it has about 170HP. Put the same in a 2 seater and you have a nice amount of power. My daughter has a 9-3 but with a bigger boost turbo, that really makes a difference.

things with 500HP are disgusting.

Unless you are towing a horse float or a large caravan - or perhaps if you are into really seriously off road activity.

Or of course you have a very small penis :lol:
I absolutely hate them myself..do not see the appeal at all. They are big and boxy and just plain ugly IMO.

I thought that was Porsches.

Another issue with SUVs is that they use almost twice as much petrol as a medium sized car.
