How to Choose the Right Sports Activity Vehicle (SAV)?

by Himani Mathur Content Expert

Sports Activity Vehicles (SAV)s have been a popular choice among car buyers. They are a perfect blend of space and power and have excellent off-roading capabilities. These days, SAVs come in a wide variety of styles and designs. When it comes to buying an SAV, there are innumerable options available to the car buyers. While the availability of more options is good news for buyers, it can also make things tricky.

Here are some of the things that must be kept in mind while buying an SAV –


SAVs are often used for long journeys and adventure trips. Therefore, it is crucial that they are spacious and comfortable. Otherwise, the long journeys will become extremely tiring. Generally, SAVs are roomier and more spacious than other types of vehicles. They have plenty of headroom and legroom in the front as well as the rear.

The amount of cargo space must also be taken into consideration. There must be enough space so that you can keep all your luggage conveniently. Many latest BMW models come with expandable cargo space. BMW X3, for example, has 27.6 cubic feet of cargo space that can be expanded to 63.3 cubic feet by folding the rear seats.


Going on an adventure trip with your loved ones is a great idea, provided you ensure that they stay safe during the journey. SAVs are equipped with a host of safety features such as dynamic stability control, cornering brake control, side-impact protection etc. These features play an important role in keeping the driver and passengers safe in the event of an accident.

There are many other safety features that are specifically designed to make your off-roading experience safer. For example, BMW X5, one of the top BMW models, has Hill Descent Control feature that makes it easier for you to negotiate a steep downhill run safely.

Performance & Fuel Efficiency

SAVs are not built for garages. They are built to negotiate rough terrains. How well they do it depends on how powerful they are. Powerful engine, quick acceleration and responsive handling are some of the key things that you should look for while buying an SAV. A good SAV should not just be fast but also agile. Fuel efficiency is another desirable feature of an SAV that makes it more desirable. With growing environmental concerns, top carmakers have made fuel efficiency a priority. BMW, for example, has introduced BMW EfficientDynamics in its vehicles to reduce CO2 emissions.

By keeping in mind the factors mentioned above you can easily choose the right SAV. BMW, one of the top carmakers in the world, offers a wide variety of SAVs. You can visit BMW Platino Classic, a BMW certified dealer in Kochi, to explore the complete range of BMW SAVs.
