20 Crossover SUVs You Need to Know About
These cars are not quite your conventional crossovers, blurring the line between passenger car and SUV, but still provide plenty of utility space and all-wheel drive.
Volkswagen Golf Alltrack
If you wanted a Golf that you can pack for a camping trip and confidently take down a dirt road, your wish has been granted with the 2016 Golf Alltrack.
It is slightly raised from the basic Golf Sportwagen and armed with all-wheel drive. With a passenger-car cabin layout, its great for those not ready to make the jump to a full SUV.
One of the best-selling crossovers, the Outback is often left out of the category due to being called a wagon. But it sits higher than many of the other cars on this list and is just as rugged, thanks to its high ground clearance and always-on all-wheel drive. Combine that with its ample storage space, and it out-SUVs many of the ‘real’ crossover SUVs.
Tesla Model X
This all-electric SUV does not fit into any of the above categories neatly, but just couldn’t be omitted. It is fast, spacious and is probably the most hi-tech vehicle available on the market right now. The only thing keeping it from sweeping every category is its battery-limited range and its very high price tag.
