An SUV I made. It's 5-wide and can sit one minifig.

Very smooth and nicely shaped.  The few still visible studs´re adding some extra charm,
and there´re some cool details like the central pillar and these side mirrors.  :thumbup:
However... I´m still a sucker for car doors...  :grin:

Very nice. I'm a big fan of odd width designs. In fact, I think an odd stud width vehicle contest would be great for the Trains and Town subforum!

Asuka, you really do like doors, don't you? I've seen you mention 'em in the last three threads I clicked!

Thanks everyone and the mirrors are not my idea, I've seen it somewhere else.

Well Done. Reminds me of a subaru, or some of the other more station-wagon-ish SUV's that seem to be appearing these last few years.

Nice MOC but I think that it currently looks more like an SUV/car crossover (like the Dodge Caliber or Nissan Qashqai).  To make it look more SUV-like I think you need to add a plate (or two?) between the chassis and the wheels.  SUVs have ground clearance.

Cheers
