The American obsession for SUVs
What’s is up with Americans can their ever growing obsession for SUVs. It’s pushing carmakers to stop the production of some of their most iconic cars or better still, revive them as high riding grocery getters! The horror!
Brands like Mitsubishi been forced to convert its iconic sports car, the Eclipse into a High riding small family SUV………eeeewwww!
Even Ford has stopped the production of some of its best cars and are on the verge of adding more SUVs to its line up……show me the monaaay (Thinks in major profit).
The latest brand to suffer from this obsession is the proud German brand…….Mercedes Benz. Declining sales of the Iconic Cclass means they might have to stop production of it so as to make more space for its SUVs, the new GLE and GLS…….soccer moms rejoice!
What’s with this growing love or obsession? Do they have bad roads like us in Nigeria? Or they just like to look down on pedestrians and bikers? Either way, it looks like a slow sad goodbye to the low riding sleek midsize sedans and compact sports cars.
