Survey says interest in SUVs is climbing

According to a survey, 21 percent of consumers who plan to buy a car in 2007 intend to buy a SUV or crossover. Six percent planned on purchasing a hybrid car. The largest portion, 28 percent, are undecided.

At the same time, price was the most important factor, followed by fuel efficiency. Then safety, size and body style. It's hard to reconcile those two factors in my mind. SUVs and crossovers tend to be lower in fuel economy and are more expensive than your average car.

At the end of the day, though, this is good news for anyone concerned about the environment. Even if you buy an SUV (as opposed to say, a hybrid), by buying the SUV with the best fuel economy, you're giving the automakers good incentive to make their next vehicle, whether it is an SUV or a sedan, as economical as possible in order to compete for your next purchase.
