Why the Crossover is Breathing Life Into Auto Sales

The crossover vehicle, or compact SUV, is enjoying a surge in sales. Toward the end of the second decade of the 21st century, there are more than 70 models sold in the United States. Why has this comparatively new genre of family car replaced the conventional SUV in the hearts of the modern car buyer?

Fuel Economy

The cost of oil is in constant flux. It varies with supply and demand, political influences, and ultimately the mood of the people who produce it. One thing gas prices are not is low. Everybody wants to get the most mileage from their fuel dollar. Crossovers are smaller than traditional SUVs with innovative engines that know how to stretch a gallon.

Comfort

While safety and reliability remain top concerns, customers appreciate a comfortable ride and smooth handling characteristics. The reason why crossovers are more comfortable than SUVs is that they are based on automobile platforms, rather than trucks.
