Automakers selling to American consumers finally seem to have gotten the message that buyers want cars and SUVs that allow them to trim their gas bills while at the same time providing comfortable rides in stylish, roomy vehicles.
When a car is integral to your business as it is in real estate, you need options for saving money on gas, which now tops $3 a gallon in most parts of the country. Thankfully, the auto industry is delivering.
Crossovers may look a lot like conventional SUVs, but under the skin they use a more car-like chassis. They’re also usually a lot more nimble to drive than truck-based utes. And perhaps best of all, they generally yield far better mileage than what some industry analysts like to call “truck-trucks.”
