What is the Difference Between an SUV and an MPV?

Sports Utility Vehicle

A Sports Utility Vehicle is otherwise known as an SUV. Designed to travel over some of the roughest surfaces on the planet, Sports Utility Vehicles are currently a leading car type in the motor industry. Although a typical SUV is seemingly larger than an ordinary car with its stronger, more sporty appearance, they can actually often be amongst the easiest motors to drive.

The interior features of a Sports Utility Vehicle are typically designed with the highest quality materials to enhance the comfort of the driver. Needless to say, the increase in vehicle size allows more passenger space, so everyone can feel perfectly relaxed throughout any journey. Nowadays, most Sports Utility Vehicles also offer advanced technological features to help guide you throughout your adventure.

With four-wheel drive giving you the ability to travel both on-road and off-road, Sports Utility Vehicles are better suited for those who are eager to face a challenge and enjoy the thrill of adventures, no matter where the journey takes you.

Multi-Purpose Vehicle

On the other hand, an MPV is a Multi-Purpose Vehicle that is typically used to transport a large number of people from one place to another. Naturally, a Multi-Purpose Vehicle is perfect for practicality, especially if you’re a fan of adventures! However, they may not be as easy to manoeuvre as SUVs.

In comparison to Sports Utility Vehicles, the features of a Multi-Purpose Vehicle are generally designed for carrying many people and keeping passengers safe, whereas a Sports Utility Vehicle can only accommodate between 5 and 7 passengers at any given time.

Although Multi-Purpose Vehicles allow more passenger room, they are limited when it comes to handling. Sports Utility Vehicles are more for tricky terrain and whilst they are still good for carrying several passengers on road trips, they are slightly smaller and more manoeuvrable.
