Here at MHH International we are fully aware of the continuing popularity of the Sport Utility Vehicle (SUV) which shows no sign of abating. They are popular both with families on the school run and with outdoors types who like to venture out into the wild blue yonder.

Buyers can always opt for hard-core pickup trucks and the like but most will prefer the perhaps more comfortable and luxurious ride found in prestige cars today.
