People buy SUVs to be 'above' others...both figuratively and literally.  It
makes them feel "bigger and badder" than the person in the sedan next to
them.  Also, minivans took on a pretty bad "soccer mom" rep and SUVs became
the 'cooler' alternative.

Since SUVs are classed as trucks, they actually have to pass far less
stringent safety testing.
