Which Crossovers are the Best?

The combination of high fuel prices, not wanting a mommy-mobile and maybe just a bit of common sense has swayed buyers into shopping for crossovers. SUV owners who finally realized that they didn’t need all of the fuel-robbing bulk and family chauffeurs seeking more style have found crossover vehicles to be an excellent compromise. The typical crossover consists of a passenger car chassis, high seating position for a better view and a large cargo area. Most are available with all-wheel drive and some offer seating for as many as eight. Like any other type of vehicle, they range from bare bones to ultra-chic, and market segments are becoming more crowded. View the following car reviews for our top ten favorite crossovers.

Ford Flex Titanium
Ford has taken its Flex crossover in a decidedly more luxurious direction with the posh Titanium trim level, which adds 20-inch aluminum rims, a handsome black leather interior and the intelligent SYNC infotainment system to the hip family hauler's already winning formula.
