Get the flash of a sedan and the ruggedness of an SUV.
Looking for lots of space in a smaller package? Crossover SUVs are a solid mix of a roomy interior with the compact size to fit in those tight parking spaces. So, what’s a crossover SUV? One main difference is in the vehicle’s platform/chassis. Typically, an SUV is built on the same chassis that a truck would be built on. However, a crossover vehicle has many of the features of an SUV, but is typically built with the same "body-on-frame" design that a passenger vehicle or sedan would have.
There are many reasons why you might choose a crossover SUV as your household’s next four-wheel addition. Maybe you are looking for solid fuel economy, comfort features, and style to turn heads on the road.
