Stretch Limousines vs. Stretch SUVs: Which One is Better?

Looking for a luxury ride? These days there are two main options - the traditional limousine and the stretch SUV, the latter often based off of the hummer. Which one should you rent for that special occasion? The best vehicle depends, really, on the outing you have in mind.

Stretch limousines tend to be more romantic. They are considered elegant and stylish and are associated with high class events. Stretch SUVs have a more modern, "edgy" feel to them. Hummers, in particular, are known as party vehicles and generally more suited to a bachelor party or a girls' night out. Are there practical differences?

The biggest practical difference is that stretch SUVs may seat slightly more people (stretch limos tend to max out at 15, depending on the configuration,, but more typically seat 6 to 8, while SUVs typically seat 16, and some may seat as many as 24). Some people also find the stretch SUV easier to get in and out of, especially if wearing an evening gown, and easier to maneuver inside. Which is why Cadillac now does a stretch SUV - the Escalade. SUV limos also tend to have a more stable ride, and some have a better bar.

Ultimately, which of the two is better depends on exactly what you are hiring a vehicle for, what your event is, and of course your personal taste. In general, stretch limousines are more suited to romantic occasions such as weddings or proms, while stretch SUVs are better suited to groups of friends planning a very special party.

SUVs tend to cost a little bit more to rent, mostly because they do seat more people (limousine companies often charge by number of seats). However, they can be worth it for larger parties and certain situations. (If you have more than 20 people you might consider renting a bus instead).

The answer as to which one is better, though? It depends on what you need. If you have more questions, contact A Formal Image Limousines today. From luxury wedding limos to hummer limo rentals, we have a wide variety of options to choose from for your special occasion.
