They are supposedly getting more fuel-efficient, and great for families with children because of all the room inside, but no one seems to care that they are more effective at crushing human bodies not encased in their steel envelope. Uber SUVs have become noticeably more prevalent in my neighborhood over just one or two years, and they are scary.
