Updated on June 20 2024

METRO MANILA, – Are you searching for a car that can do it all?

Why not try crossover sport-utility vehicles (SUV)! These combine the ease of driving of a regular sedan with the toughness of an SUV.

Here are amazing benefits that you can get in buying this type of automobile.

Big passenger space

If you are looking for a car that can accommodate your whole family, plus your stuff, crossovers are the right choice.

Compared to sedans, crossovers provide more backseat space. Thus, anyone seated there will enjoy the added legroom, without sacrificing the other features of a car that you needed.  

Wide variety of options

Car buyers are still fascinated with crossovers.

Since the first one came out in the mid-2000s, the segment has always been a big hit in the market. That’s why a lot of manufacturers started releasing new crossovers every year.

The good news is they also added great features and improved the designs, allowing you to leverage on the wide variety of choices available in different car dealership shops these days.


While an SUV is a great choice in terms of having huge space for passengers, it is no secret that the price is way too high for some car buyers.

Crossovers, on the other hand, are usually sold at very competitive prices. You can enjoy the stylish features of an SUV without spending so much money.

Easy to maneuver

If you are a first-time driver and a bit skeptical in handling an automobile, crossovers will not be a problem for you.

Compared to other vehicles, this type of car has a shorter length, allowing you to drive in tight spaces or go through traffic with ease. And because of the higher ground clearance, you can go through rough terrain without thinking of damaging a sensitive part of the car.  

More space for cargo

If you are planning to use your car to run errands for your small business, crossovers offer an additional room for your cargo.

This means that you will not only be able to fit passengers in the backseat, but you can also bring some merchandise on your trip.


While it is true that SUVs and crossovers look almost identical, a lot of people don't know that the latter are more fuel efficient.

SUVs and pick-up trucks are much heavier than crossovers, which are based on regular sedans. On the other hand, the small body of a crossover makes it suitable for drivers who want an automobile with lots of space while still enjoying some savings in their fuel consumption.

High seating capacity

As a driver, you will surely leverage from the high seating capacity of crossovers.

Some models, such as the Mitsubishi Xpander Cross and the Toyota Rush, can fit up to seven passengers.

In addition, the high ground clearance means you can easily see things, even potential hazards that are usually too small for other drivers to see. Aside from that, your older folks will also enjoy this car since they can easily get inside, without bending themselves over too much every time they enter.


Whether you are planning to use your car as a daily mode of transportation in the city or bring it to have some fun in a rural destination, crossovers will be your best buddy.

It is flexible, sporty and very reliable in whatever situation you are. It can even move smoothly in rough terrain and tight spaces, perfect for an all-around vehicle.
