Have you ever taken the time to break down the term Sport Utility Vehicle – or SUV – to its basic elements? There’s sport, which indicates some sort of energetic or athletic prowess; utility with brings to mind the capability to transport cargo; and then there’s vehicle, which is, well, probably the only element that’s accurate for any so denoted vehicles. Considering those elements, and the expectation that any so anointed vehicle would be adroit in at least one of them, why would anyone buy the above expected Bentley SUV?
Seriously, would this be your first – or fifteenth – choice to take the family to the ski slopes? Or perhaps swallow a new baby’s worth of strollers, diaper bags and other related tiny human accoutrements? The proposed SUV seems to me to be little more than Volkswagen’s (Bentley’s parent corporation) attempt to jump on the money train.
You know, I say more power too them. That’s because not only are certain cars – and SUVs – pretentious, but so are the people who buy them. We’re not them so of course we can pass judgement on them. To that end, what do you think is the most pretentious car or truck they could buy today?
