Fun and functional in a smaller package.
There's no denying the popularity of crossover SUVs on roads today. Crossover SUVs combine space, power, comfort, and practical features, which makes them ideal for families and traveling with small groups. Crossover SUVs tend to be more compact than their full-size siblings, which often makes them easier to handle. These vehicles are a great option if you regularly drive in a city and don't need the extra space a larger SUV provides.

Crossover SUVs are a great choice if you need extra room for your weekend road trips and daily errands. Many have functional cargo space and folding seats to fit in whatever you need to carry, whether it's groceries, supplies or camping gear. You can choose from front-wheel-drive or all-wheel-drive systems, as most crossovers offer both.
If it's adventure you're into, the Toyota RAV4 comes with an Adventure trim (2018 to present models) that features rugged styling and available all-wheel drive. If you're after practicality and great standard features, take a look at the Chevrolet Equinox. The 2019 model has an available hands-free liftgate and a 60/40 split-folding rear seat that folds flat, great news if you're hauling bulky items.
There's a reason the Nissan Rogue sits at the top of our list. It's all about everyday adventure, so whether you're using the available intelligent all-wheel drive (2018 models onward) to navigate tough weather on the way to work, or love to do some light off-roading, you'll drive with confidence.
A crossover SUV gives you the maneuverability of a sedan, and the space and visibility of a full-sized SUV. It's this sweet-spot combination that makes them such a popular choice.
