2018 Nissan Kicks vs 2018 Nissan Murano

When it comes time to invest in a vehicle to trust for everything from the daily commute to cross-country road trips, it is important to take into account the passenger and cargo volume that your lifestyle calls for, as well as the amount of space you need to feel comfortable. Lately, both crossovers and sport utility vehicles are becoming more popular because they offer ample space for plenty of passengers and their luggage, while also offering capable and reliable performance. But, what is the difference between crossovers and SUVs? Continue reading below to view a comparison from the trusted professionals at Carville’s Auto Mart in Grand Junction, Colorado.



Key Differences Between Crossovers and SUVs

The main difference between crossovers and SUVs is the platform. SUVs use the chassis of a truck with a body on frame design. Meanwhile, crossovers use a unibody structure in which the body and frame are the same piece. With this taken into account, the key performance differences between the two include that crossovers offer more sedan-like performance that provides more sharp handling, the ability to maneuver through small spaces. SUVs, on the other hand, are built to handle more demanding and rugged terrain and are more often offered with four-wheel drive configurations.
