With more and more drivers in Huntsville and beyond gravitating towards SUV style vehicles these days, it seems we use the terms "SUV" and "crossover" interchangeably. If you're not an automotive expert, this can lead to some confusion. Fortunately, team members at Hiley Volkswagen of Huntsville are automotive experts, and we can help you understand the distinguishing factors between the two types of vehicle and help you choose the best fit for your needs.

Simply put, an SUV indicates a model that's based on a pickup truck. These are full-sized vehicles that offer the same chassis, stiff ride quality, and utility of your favorite truck, except they have the more-spacious cab style that can accommodate up to nine people in three rows.

A crossover vehicle, on the other hand, has the same design aesthetic as an SUV, with the sporty exterior and occasional three-row style, but the similarities end there at the skin-deep level. That’s because a crossover is based on the chassis and build of an easy-to-drive car. This makes a crossover smooth and as easy to maneuver as your favorite sedan, but with the more spacious interior signature of the SUV style.
