Although designs vary, SUVs have historically been mid-size passenger vehicles with a body-on-frame chassis similar to that found on light trucks.

Early SUVs were mostly two door models, and were available with removable tops.

Most SUVs are designed with an engine compartment, a combined passenger and cargo compartment, and no dedicated trunk.

Bodies of SUVs have recently become more aerodynamic, but the sheer size and weight keeps their fuel economy poor.

SUVs became popular in the United States, Canada, and Australia in the 1990s and early 2000s.

Luxury SUVs typically offer the most expected safety features including side airbags, ABS and traction control, and many of them also come with electronic stability control, crash resistant door pillars, dynamic head restraints and back-up sensing systems.
