Crossover vehicles or compact SUV's are becoming more and more among consumers, benefiting especially from the space, comfort and practicality on offer.

This is especially true when it comes to those with larger families where legroom, boot space and the capability to drive on non tarmac terrain is a stand out advantage.

Some of the popular ones

Locally, some of these cars are a common sight on the roads, most notably the Kia Sportage, Mazda CX-5 and the Suzuki Vitara.

Another great thing about crossover cars is that they still retain the sporty elements of passenger vehicles which is often sacrificed on the more heavier SUV variants.

Crossovers are perfect for those that want sufficient space for a family trip while still enjoying the nimbleness and sporty feel of a normal performance car.
