Small, Midsize and Large Crossover Models
Searching for the spaciousness, higher driving position, and utility of an SUV but the smooth handling and ride quality of a car? Consider a crossover model. Crossovers differ from SUVs in that they have the unibody design of a car instead of the body-on-frame construction of a light truck. But like SUVs, crossover models come in all shapes and sizes, from subcompact to large.
That variety can make choosing a crossover tricky, and there are many factors to consider. For instance, what’s your budget? Are you looking for a new or used crossover? Will you need a large, midsize, or small crossover? Is safety, reliability, technology, or performance a priority? Thinking about going electric with an EV?
To get you started, the compact Honda CR-V, Toyota RAV4, and Mazda CX-5 are among the top-rated crossovers. Well-reviewed midsize models include the Kia Telluride, Hyundai Palisade, and Subaru Outback. And if you want a luxury crossover, consider the BMW X3, Porsche Cayenne, or Tesla Model X.
