Sports cars are becoming less popular today thanks in part to SUVs. SUVs, which stands for Sports Utility Vehicles, are seeing a massive resurgence in sales and interest. The question is whether the SUV craze will last for long or join its ’90s predecessors like the Eddie Bauer Ford Explorers before it. According to It Still Runs, the public perception of SUVs is long rooted in their off-roading capabilities and storage space catered for families. On the other side of the coin, there have always been sports cars, best known for performance.
But over the past few years, the SUV has gotten sportier. Part of this is due to the fact that SUV performance has improved. Now, the paradigm has shifted with SUV sales now dominating the market. Could the Sports cars soon become a rare and endangered species in the world of cars today? While many would rue the day the Sportscar goes extinct—or else niche for only rich car enthusiasts—the reality is that SUVs are here to stay.
Since the market is now saturated with them, it’s worth separating the sportier SUVs from the rest. In fact, the SUVs on this list are legitimate substitutes for many sports cars on the road today.
The Lamborghini Urus has an eye-popping design that’s sure to cause many a double take. It’s not just a pretty sight after all either.
Sporting what’s believed to be 600 hp, according to Review it Online, it’s able to reach 60 mph in about 4 seconds.
If that doesn’t tempt sports cars owners to take the dive on a new SUV, we don’t know what will.
There’s a limited number of these things on the road though, so that’s either good or bad news. What’s sure to be good news is the fact that it’s a high-performance SUV.
