Crossovers are one of the most popular categories at Howard Orloff Volvo Cars. Traditionally, a crossover vehicle was viewed as being somewhere between a station wagon and an SUV. The category wasn't very well-defined. As the minivan fell out of favor, some of those fell into the classification, too. Today, most so-called crossovers are actually small SUVs. Crossovers are a great option for anyone who wants the rugged athleticism and cargo space of an SUV but prefers the comfortable ride of a passenger car.

The key difference between crossovers and SUVs is the platform they're built on. Traditionally, full-size SUVs are classified as trucks and built on those platforms. The emphasis is on function, not comfort. A crossover is built on a standard passenger car platform. They typically have a one-piece frame, unlike SUVs. This translates into a lighter vehicle that's easier to handle and park. Crossovers are also generally more fuel-efficient than SUVs.
