Hey Andy SUV is a really big category! What's not to be liked with SUV.
My wife has had her 2002 Escape for over 6 years, loves it. I realize we're poor folk but hey SUV covers Lexus, Explorer, Escalade, Mercedes, Suburban, Expedition, Tahoe. No soccer mom image, easy for old people to get in and out.
Let's see. Ya got crossovers (2017 station wagon), mini van, 4 dr sedan, SUV, pick me ups and sports or pony car.
Why not a SUV?

On our way to test drive a Hyundai Tuscan we passed a Morgan dealership. I tried to talk her into a 3-Wheeler, but no dice.

Reminds me of the time about 25 years ago my then wife wanted an Explorer. I reminded her that it was a truck and would drive and handle like one. She was undeterred and a new Explorer soon graced our driveway. Due to the fact that a 160 hp V6 coupled with 2+ tons of road hugging weight meant that acceleration was akin to toothpaste oozing out of a tube, I rarely drove the thing.
In less than 2 years she grew tired of the Explorer citing that it drove like a truck !! Took the depreciation hit and got a regular station wagon again.

We just bought a 2017 Hyundai Tucson Limited with all the bells and whistles. (I never thought I would own a Hyundai), but I love it. Got a really good deal. Getting fantastic gas mileage. I am not used to that! The 429 CJ I had got about 10 mpg. The Tucson is only a 1.6 turbo, but it is fine with me. Got plenty of ooomph for a family car. If I want to really go, I will drive my "65". We also have a Jeep Liberty Limited.
