Heroes of our today’s issue is not so much the SUVs as sports cars with a station wagon with improved ground clearance. The Americans have a perfectly fitting name for such cars SUV (Sport Utility Vehicle), but in Russia they are called «monster trucks», «SUVs» (which is not true), the «crossovers». But we will refer to them both as a single classification (at least short) we have.
