Top Crossover CarsPosted by TheCarGuy on Sep 27, 2010 in Blog | 0 comments
Transportation is a very important part of our daily lives. If we have our own cars, it will be easier for us to go from one place to another. It will be a very good means for transportation when we go to work, or do the groceries, and the other everyday stuff. Public transport can be very frustrating at time. First of all, we still have to wait for the bus or the train. Then it could be really crowded and it might not get us to our destination before our schedule. But if we have our own cars, we can get there easily.
Now we all know how much cars cost these days. With just a low budget, we can be in doubt if we could ever buy one for ourselves. We need to have a solution to this so that we can buy a car.
One type of car that we can buy with a low price is the Crossover SUV. It can provide us a very comfortable ride as well as being a good mean of transportation. This type of vehicle is one of the most practical to us. It will not be too small for the whole family and not too big as well.
The Honda Odyssey a 3 row SUV which seats 7 passengers and some claim as many as 8 in a pinch. This is a great vehicle for the price, starting at just a little under 27,000.00. The gas mileage leaves something to be desired with its 17 city and 23 highway rates. The 2010 model has a 3 zone climate control system and an integrated bluetooth system as well. This is a pretty decent vehicle for a road trip with the family.
If you are going for long trips though, why not just cut gas out of the equation a little bit and get a hybrid. Save on the gas, and not sacrifice much as far as space is concerned. If this seems impossible, think again! Check out the 2010 Ford Escape Hybrid.
The Ford Escape Hybrid although this vehicle only seats 5 it has to be my very favorite of the three. A hybrid SUV, who would have thought they could make one that wouldn’t sacrifice performance for gas mileage. This monster will drive 34 mpg for the city and 31 on the highway, that is actually double the gas mileage that many traditional SUVs and Crossover vehicles offer. You couldn’t ask for a better vehicle for a long road trip with the whole family. Plenty of space for luggage and plenty of space for your kids to stretch their legs.
Finding the right vehicle for your family can be a very tough and lengthy process but one thing is for certain, there is a lot of information to be found on the best SUV and Crossover vehicles all over the internet. Make sure when you are about to buy, take a look at the user reviews on any model you are considering. You might save a lot of heartache by doing just a few minutes worth of research.
