SUVs - definitely not Sport

Why is the above vehicle called a Sport Utility Vehicle? Does it not lack one of the most important characteristics of sports cars, that is, having a low centre of gravity for the sake of stability? Does the car's "Sport" designation really want to make someone take it to the track?

No, it doesn't. What it does, though, is instill absurd overconfidence (amplified by the vehicle's mammoth size) in the driver. Often have I seen SUVs waddling and swaying while their inexperienced drivers attempt to perform questionable maneuvers on city streets.
