Hmmm, I don't know, I have seen a LOT of woman driving those things
But I have to agree, they are not needed, it is just an image thing. I am bigger than you are. They may be bigger, but my car is A LOT faster, uses less gas and is very stable on the road. Most SUVs are terrible when it comes to handling. I laugh in the winter when I see an SUV stuck in the median. (Sorry to any SUV owners out here
). But, seriously, they are not that good when it comes to handling. In the city where I work, we had an accident the other day, where a person rolled their SUV. Someone coming in the opposite direction crossed the center yellow line. The person driving the SUV had to swerve and the vehicle rolled. No one was injured
When I was a kid,we had a ford station wagon that worked just fine. There were 5 of us in my family and it held everything we needed for long camping trips too.
