Crossover Vehicles Become Fastest-Growing Auto Segment

February 26, 2003

More and more, U.S. motorists are opting for vehicles with the feel of a sedan and the roominess of a minivan or sport utility vehicle, but without the burliness and thirst for fuel of a large SUV, according to the Associated Press.The so-called "crossover" vehicle, which has characteristics of a car, minivan and SUV, seems to be the happy medium for drivers who like the stylishness and on-road command of an SUV but don't necessarily need the off-roadruggedness, AP said.As such, the tamer crossovers were the U.S. auto industry's top growth segment in 2002, and that growth is certain to continue this year as several automakers -- including Cadillac, Chrysler, Mitsubishi, Infiniti, Porsche and Volkswagen -- introduce new crossovers, according to AP.(Source: Associated Press)
