The "Auto Zürich" is an exhibition of any staircase rises. Driving – if not the car of the dreams, then at least an escalator. With convenience of those employees knows, of wipes with a cloth the fingerprints of the visitors of the body of an SUV. Such cars offer comfort, comfort, no one wishes to abandon. Convenience, and Business – that's why the human race of the planet to the wall, so it was just. "Some people lie to yourself. You say that you would never drive such a car, and now you are here."
The SUV (Sport Utility Vehicle) is a sedan that comes as an all-terrain vehicle and therefore in the case of environmentalists as a "suburban tank" into disrepute, than today's climate of youth was yet to be born hardly. But the massive city site to see the car still on each floor of the exhibition and act as magnets on the predominantly male audience. It is not so that you would marvel at just out of the corner of your eye, like forbidden fruits. If it should be something like the SUV of shame, then hardly anyone suffers here below.
Ecologically, "not so bad"
"Everyone has the right to drive the car for him is Fun, or that's what he needs," says Marcel Kägi from the Egg. The criticism is exaggerated. He own a SUV, but thanks to the hybrid drive verb smoke less petrol than some of the PW. This Argument can be heard in variations again and again. Fabio Macri from Eschenbach, the raves the car with his partner for the very large site, is convinced: "most of The new models drive very eco-friendly." The City of Zurich-Yara Lanz says it differently: the Modern SUV ecologically speaking, "not as bad" as the old. Under sellers the word is circulating that the " GT " emblazoned on some of the SUV stands for Gran Turismo, but the Greta Thunberg Edition features.

The most direct way to see into the soul of the SUV Fans, if you watched him at the approach of a car. It always starts the same, with the Opening of the trunk. Silent and elegant, the heavy cover of the lined-up cars like a mechanical ballet lift. Behind it there is nothing, except a lot of space – but the SUV-Fan to look long and carefully.
He is a mystic of the area. The climax of his Ritual, the whopping noise when Slamming the door. Now he has outside rest of the world because, he, like Major Tom in a hermetic capsule, protected by 20 inches metal and plastic. The contact with the ground control is torn down – his wife is waiting outside and talks with the staff. He lowers gently the hands on the steering wheel, puts them back on the knee, again on the steering wheel and will it void in a state of silent contemplation. A small man, recovered in a big machine.
For the engine only
interested in The SUV is comfortable, an SUV provides the space "for the Transport or whatever". You say here all. Giselle Bader from the rain village who outs himself as a Fan of large cars, needed the space, because she was a big woman. In addition, it seats higher and got on the road again.

in view of the powerful car, it seems like an ironic punch line, that, while it is in the trunk look, but none the bonnet opens. The mustachioed older gentleman who does it, falls out like a sore thumb. Now he stands, grabs the suspenders and looking silently on the dark gray plastic block that comes to the fore, where the gear should be. What you want to say?

As a car enthusiast, you have excited in the past for sports cars, today there are more such models. The be for him something Special, he says. "Who knows how long is it still there?"
He had heard that in the city with such a car sometimes booed. "I think that's a shame. If you want everything to be green, you need to take those models from the market. Then you can no longer buy them, then that's done too." Front hand but it's like this: If something is holding back the SUV-lovers at the exhibition, then it is not the bad Conscience. But the Budget.
