Suvs and Crossovers: two names, a guarantee
To decide which car suits your style the most, you need to know the difference between a SUV and a Crossover. The SUV is the big car par excellence and is very similar to an off-road vehicle or station wagon. It’s an extremely powerful, tall and spacious vehicle, with a performance that is superior to an ordinary sedan.
But what does "SUV" actually mean? SUV stands for Sport Utility Vehicle, this is because, due to its appearance, the SUV, is often compared to an off-road vehicle, even though the only thing they actually have in common are the raised driving position and the four-wheel drive.
Meanwhile, Crossovers are an intermediate category, between a MPV and a station wagon. It’s a car that always features a raised driving position, perfect for people who love driving on extra-urban roads. It’s smaller than a SUV but has an equally powerful engine. It doesn’t always have four-wheel drive, although, for some time now, this is quite a common feature on many of the new generation vehicles.
Comparing a SUV with a Crossover, analysing the performance and available budget is essential for understanding which car you should buy.
