Crossover or SUV: Which is right for me?

Once you’ve decided you’re in search of a vehicle with a bit more space, the next question you may ask yourself is if you should go for a crossover or an SUV. The difference between the two can get confusing, but Morgantown Mitsubishi is here to help. Keep reading to find out the main discrepancy between these two types of vehicles and to see which one is the better fit for you and your family.

What’s the Difference?

The terms SUV and crossover are thrown around a lot, but what is the actual defining difference between the two? It’s all about the body or platform the vehicle is built from. A crossover is based off of a car’s platform, while an SUV is based off the platform of a truck.

Reasons to Choose a Crossover

A crossover is a great option if you’re looking for a versatile vehicle with plenty of passenger space. You should go with a crossover if you have a big family but won’t need tons of room for both passengers and cargo on a regular basis. Crossovers drive more like a car, so they don’t perform as well on rugged roads. On the flip side, they tend to have better handling and agility because they’re easier to maneuver. If you mainly stick to paved roads and highways, a crossover is for you.

Reasons to Choose an SUV

As expected, an SUV is good for when you need to carry a lot of gear, equipment, or passengers. You should choose an SUV over a crossover if you’re doing any off-roading or driving on unpaved roads, need high ground clearance, or often find yourself needing towing capabilities. Don’t forget that with the size of an SUV comes a lower fuel economy than with a crossover. You’ll have to spend a little bit more at the gas pump but the trade-off is that an SUV can handle more when you need it to.
