which vehicle is more robust overall and thus will be damaged less?
Hi there. Thanks for submitting your question today. Unfortunately, there is no good answer here that we can offer. Crossover SUV’s are not intended for off road use, as their suspension is more similar to a passenger car than a Jeep or off-road vehicle. Both suspension set ups on these two vehicles are fragile, as are steering components, tires, brakes and engine / transmission mounts. Our advice is to NOT use these vehicles for off-road use, but to look into a more robust vehicle intended for that use.
