Abstract

Today, there are two opposing forces competing, on the one hand, ecology, the main aspect of which is to reduce the amount of pollution in the environment, but nevertheless, the trend of the modern world is also mobility, and the car is one of the indicators of mobility. But on the other hand, the number of sport utilitarian vehicle (SUV) cars, one of the integral components of which is four-wheel drive, is increasing. Therefore, the aim of this work is to investigate objective reasons for purchasing an all-wheel drive car and to investigate its maintenance costs in the east region of Vidzeme.
