Although minivans and SUVs still sell well, many people are now interested in crossover vehicles. These are vehicles that combine all the good things of several different vehicle types. They have the mileage of a sedan, mixed with the roominess of a minivan, and the rugged utility of an SUV. Crossovers are for people who don’t want to compromise. While most crossover vehicles feature many of the same amenities, they are not all the same. Here’s a list of the best crossovers out there.
The CX-5 is a sleek four-door vehicle, with the option of either a 2.0-liter or a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine, both of which get over 30 mpg. The interior of the CX-5 is just as sleek as the outside, and is full of modern technology, ensuring that you not only get to where you’re going, but that you enjoy the ride there.
The Nissan Rogue is one of those vehicles you just really want to own. It gets over 30 mpg, is fun to drive, and can take on almost any task you throw at it (well, maybe not cleaning the garage). Although it’s not quite as sleek as the Mazda, the Rouge is still easy on the eyes, and the large interior allows you to pack and haul whatever you or your family needs.
Chevy claims that their Equinox is the crossover that “fits all,” and they might be right. The Equinox has plenty of space, gets over 30 mpg, and looks nice on the road. It’s a little more rugged looking than the Nissan or the Mazda, but many people like that look. Along with Chevrolet Complete Care—which includes oil changes, tire rotations, and vehicle inspections—the Equinox is a great deal for anyone.
Acura is known for making top-quality vehicles, and the RDX is no exception to this. The RDX is another sleek crossover vehicle, and it really does look like the perfect cross between an SUV and a minivan, but, because it’s Acura, it has an added touch of luxury. The RDX has a larger engine than many of its competitors, and it still manages almost 30 mpg.
The GMC Terrain is an exercise in practical refinement. GMC has created a vehicle that has everything you want and need, and nothing that you don’t. With plenty of technology to aid the driver, and one of the quietest rides you can have, the GMC brings one of the most enjoyable driving experiences to the crossover market.
The Escape is a vehicle for people who like to do things. The Escape makes it easy to get your groceries, drive to a state park for a picnic, go biking or hiking, and the high mpg allows you to simply explore the roads if you want. The modern technology ensures that you’ll always be connected, and the comfortable interior gives you a reason to drive longer and more often.
