More cat and dog owners prefer an SUV over any other type of vehicle, according to a poll conducted by the popular Spanish TV program “Entre Familia.”
The poll, conducted online from April 19 to 26, 2007, found 42 percent of pet owners who said their preferred vehicle is an SUV, in particular the Dodge Durango, with Ford’s Expedition and the Chevy Tahoe closely behind.
Another 36 percent said they prefer a mid-size vehicle. Smaller vehicles were favored by just 14 percent of respondents, while the remaining six percent leaned toward minivans.
“It’s the comfort and space that’s appealing to consumers especially when there are pets involved. Pets are like kids to most pet owners and they buy with that in mind,” said “Entre Familia” TV executive producer Adrian Martinez.
“Needless to say, the purchasing power of the pet community is one that is enormous but ironically neglected sometimes,” Martinez said.
“Entre Familia,” which airs on the MoruVision network, features the latest in automobiles, travel destinations, resorts, celebrity interviews, and home ideas.
