The Best of Both Worlds: What Crossovers Can Offer

Because a crossover vehicle's design features resemble that of the sports utility vehicle (SUV) many people do not bother to know the difference. A crossover is built on a car platform combining the SUV styling features and passenger vehicle features.

More Space

Crossover cars have the body of SUVs. This means that compared with the regular compact car, a crossover definitely has more interior space. While they look smaller than SUVs, they can rival the latter in seating capacity. Additionally, crossovers have flexible seating combinations that allow for third row seating. Previously, minivans were the only models to offer this. Furthermore, a roomier interior space means increased cargo capacity.

Better Fuel Economy

The car platform on which crossovers are built means that they have smaller engines than those of SUVs. This means that crossover engines don't guzzle gas like SUVs. Moreover, due to their unibody construction, the crossover has lower curb weight. Simply put, they are lighter vehicles. Thus, you are certain to get better gas mileage with a crossover than with an SUV.

Smoother Ride

While SUVs have rugged suspensions that enable them to haul large equipment, this also makes riding in them rough. On the other hand, while crossovers have comparable hauling capacity, they give a smoother ride. This is, again, because of the car platform on which they are built. Their suspensions are designed to absorb road bumps much like the suspension in cars. If you are test-driving in the Edmonton area, don't be surprised that the crossover drives smoothly.

Better Handling

Compared with SUVs which are quite difficult to drive because of their heavy weight and off-the-road suspensions, crossovers are easier to drive and maneuver. This makes them a practical choice when coming from a countryside cruise, you enter the city and have to navigate around its corners and tight spots. An all-wheel drive crossover like the Subaru Forester Edmonton has gives you better control and traction on any road surface.

Safety

While they have tall stances, crossovers have lower center of gravity compared with SUVs. This allows the crossover to keep the beautiful styling of the SUV and avoid its dangerous tendency to tip and rollover on inclines and wet sloping roads. It is almost like driving a sedan like the Subaru Impreza Edmonton has.

Cost

With their car-based platforms which require less factory tooling and development than body-on-frame vehicles, crossovers are less costly than SUVs. With their competitive prices, any Subaru Forester Edmonton has to offer is a vehicle you would surely love.
