Ultimate 4WD and SUV comparison list

This is the Ultimate 4WD and SUV comparison list page

Since we are looking at getting a new car or SUV/replacement this page has been designed to list all the competitors in that are 4WD or now classified as an SUV and can go off road into a simple as possible check list.  This is our opinion on where the various brands and models should be categorized. Note that specific reviews can be accessed in the sub-menus. Hence the title – the ultimate comparison list.

Likewise if you’re intending to buy a new 4WD/SUV then this list should also help you consider all the alternatives available! The list will obviously get longer over time. See the specific comparisons on the various menus.

SUV (Sport utility Vehicles) is basically the new term for the old 4WD station wagon, van, utility etc.. Remember that there are quite a lot of price overlaps hence definitely do some cross shopping. We also put together a approx pricing list on this website, so just follow the links.
