    SUV is the worst vehicle in every aspect it is meant to cover. Adding "sport" just adds one more really bad aspect.
    They do not have offroad capability. Low clearance, no Hi-Low setting, no diff locks or LSD's, some even don't have four wheel drive...
    They are big, so it is bit disturbing to get into, for example x5, if your car is dirty you end up with dirty trouser leg. It is hard do manouver.
    They are light, so they have no pulling capabiltiy(juke, rav4 etc.).
    They have bad fuel consumption.
    They are not spasious. Most of modern suvs are as same big interior as most usual cars.
    They do not have good trailer towing capabilty(max mass of trailer).
    They have really bad driveing dynamics because of hight mass centre.
    They are litterally worst type of cars to have, and I do not get the hype.

    Anyone notice after the first time or two you use Honey and save a few bucks you never save again? I've had it for a long time and make at the least 3 online purchases a week for personal or business. It's been a ghost since the first time I used it. Seems sketchy and this reminded me to do some more digging into Honey.

    Dude, you need to figure out the difference between “BMW performance” and “M performance” before you make this video, a M240i does not have much performance boost compare to its counterpart? what is the M240i’s counterpart? you think there is a another BMW car called 240i? this is hilarious, unsubscribed

    Is the M240 a performance car? Exactly. You need to clarify those things in your video.
