Crossovers own the market right now and are essentially the most popular segment in terms of sales.

But what exactly is a crossover, Crossover Utility Vehicle or CUV? This might seem like a silly question, but itís one that we get a lot.

Crossovers have evolved from old-school sport utility vehicles (SUVs). Itís all about platforms ó SUVs typically use a body-on-frame platform thatís typically associated with or shared with a pickup truck, while crossovers use a unibody platform thatís typically shared with cars like a sedan or hatchback.

As a result, crossovers have a more practical vehicle design that combines the advantages of most sedans or hatchbacks as well as the size and some capabilities that are typically associated with SUV.

For a while, SUVs were very popular due to their size and riding position. People felt safe in these big lumbering beasts and they could haul their families and their stuff across the country. SUVs like Jeep Wranglers and Toyota Land Cruisers are also the go-to vehicles for off-roaders for their superior capability.
So What is a Crossover? AutoGuide.com tries to break it down.
