A crossover SUV is an automobile that combines the body of an SUV with the chassis of a passenger car. This is in contrast to a full bodied SUV (like the Escalade) which are built on bigger sturdier frames – these cars sometimes have a stiffer ride quality.
Crossover SUVs have become increasingly popular in recent years due to their versatility and ability to provide a smooth ride.
Crossovers typically feature a higher seating position than traditional sedans, along with a higher ground clearance for better off-road capability.
A typical crossover SUV will also offer more storage space and cargo capacity than a sedan, making them great for hauling groceries, luggage, and other items. They also come with higher fuel efficiency than traditional SUVs.
